Celtic knotwork tattoo by mossy-tree Celtic knotwork tattoo by mossy-tree
:bulletred: You can tattoo/get this tattooed, but if you do please leave a comment, thank you! :) (a photo would be even better ^^ )

[Edit: Lowered the saturation. The vivid orange background wasn't great.]

I wanted to do some knotwork but was a bit out of idea, so I just did a random shape that could pass off as a tattoo design ^^;
It was a good opportunity to test some colored cardboard I had, with a white pencil.

It's a design made of a single line/loop - to me it's a bit like an infinity symbol, only more complex.

The design is ~32cm wide.

I ended up changing this to a full black design with white channels and had it tattooed on my upper back! I absolutely love it! I unfortunately cannot add a photo though. If you happen to see this and we get in touch we should exchange email, so I can send it to you! Thank you!

I really love this! Awesome tattoo idea!

It would be an awesome upper middle back/shoulder design!

I'd love to have something like that tattooed on my chest. But maybe smaller.

Great work!

Very pretty!  Creating one's own celtic knot is tough work, so kudos to you for achieving such a lovely result.

You did a wonderful job on this. The lines are crisp and the shading and highlights are very nicely done. Great job.

I think the white pencil helped a lot here, it wouldn't be the same without the highlights.

Yes, I have to agree. Using both white and black pencil set off the knot work beautifully.
