Celtic Tribal Tattoos - Woman Power-4

Celtic tribal tattoos are at least as popular with women as with men. I wouldn't be surprised though, if I've seen more sisters who chose Celtic tribal tattoos than brothers.

Celtic tribal tattoos' patterns and art are cool because of the androgyny of the design concept. Most of the designs work as well for men as for women. Although this is true, perhaps uniquely so in the varieties of styles, I did want to mention a few examples of Celtic tribal tattoos that are uniquely appropriated by women.

Sisterhood Celtic tribal tattoos are a nice example of this. Even if you're a woman who didn't have a sister growing up, or those of us who are lucky enough to find a sister of the spirit, sisterhood Celtic tribal tattoos provide a wonderful way to celebrate and honor your special, lifelong relationship. The symbol for sisterhood is a triangle with a curved line flowing from each point. It's an elegantly simple emblem that represents the three ages of woman; maiden, mother and crone. Nobody calls girls and senior women "maidens and crones" these days, of course. They're archaic words, used respectfully at the time. Anyway, I really like this symbol, because it stands for the sisterhood of all women on earth, as well as the sibling bond. It's a simple and ancient device, and works as well on the back of the neck as in a more prominent place such as an upper arm.

A subdivision of the sisterhood Celtic tribal tattoos is the motherhood ink. This also uses a threefold design, much like the symbol for sisterhood. However, in the mother symbol, the three curved lines continue into a spiral. The triple mother goddess was an ancient British deity known as the Matres Domesticae. She stood for fertility, harvest, good health, and the hunt. She was a figure of bounty and benevolence.

Celtic tribal tattoos for womanhood, sisterhood, and motherhood have in common a symbol known as the triquetra, and as in cultures the world over, it uses the symbolic number three. The triquetra can be combined with designs such as heart, mother and child, or other symbols of your choosing to further personalize your Celtic tribal tattoos in a way that is most meaningful to you.
