Celtic Leaf by TrollGirl Celtic Leaf by TrollGirl
I started this for some DA community project but couldn't finish in time, so here it is now.

I rather like it.

That looks really cool.
Even though I as an archeologist donīt agree with the term "Celtic" for these knot-symbols because they are either viking-inspired or modern and have to do with the "Celts" (who didnīt exist as a nation or big ethnic community, even not at the time when Gaius Julius Caesar besieged Alesia, but as small communities that had trade and/or hostile relationships with eachother and had certain similarities but didnīt see themselves as part of a bigger whole), I really like this leaf design.
Sorry to bargain about the term "Celtic" here, but I am dedicated to the truth. (Sounds pretty stupid and self-important, I know ;p )

Thanks for the info, 'fraid its not going to help. Calling something 'viking-inspired knots' will have ppl go 'lolwut?' and nothing else. We're stoopid, after all.

Totally. :nod:

Actually i think neuron images would lend themselves to something celtic, what with all the dendrites and all. I've seen two of Cajal's classic golgi-stained neuron images as tattoos at The Loom, but they seem a bit, well, dull. [link]

Ever considered tattoo design commission?
