Knot Work Tattoos
Knot work tattoos thrived in Ireland, where the Celts viewed them with high regard. They became famous as far back as 450 AD; however, the symbolism behind knot work remains hazy and unclear. Also known as the endless knot and the mystic knot, tattoos of knot work show that there is no beginning and there is no end. They are connected in such a way that a knot work symbol is never-ending. Some enthusiasts prefer tattoos of knot work because they show the timelessness of one’s spirit. They believe that they show the birth and rebirth of people after they die.
