” Celtic symbols were among the most common on Celtic warriors, namely for intimidation tactics in battle.
Celtic knots would make their appearance on the upper chest and arms as well.
Animals were hugely symbolic among the Celts, and could also be counted among the woad tattoos seen on warriors – tattoo for men (protection, ferocity, courage).
Swirls, La Tene, trinities, circles. Presumably to reflect organic energy (nature, wind, time, motion).
The Celts tattooed themselves for the same reason most of us tattoo ourselves in this modern day. It is a mark of strength, clan, remembrance. It is an extreme, soulful way to identify who we are, where we’ve been, and where we intend to go.”
