Wow it looks amazing! I'm actually thinking about getting that tattooed too. But maybe a little smaller so it fits on the wrist.
Anyway, great Job! :)

That's a Trinity Knot. There is a distinction.
WhiteSylver's avatar
Thank you for correcting me, but as I checked it on the internet both look kind of the same to me. Maybe you could explain the difference?

The Celtic Triquetra means a lot of different things, namely "body, mind and soul." The Trinity Knot is a Christian symbol that was stolen from the Celts and made to mean "The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit."

The girl who ordered this was pretty aware the symbol was of Celtic origin. Again - I just drew the tattoo, she said it was called triquetra. If she knew about the story, why would you just assume she wanted the trinity knot and not triquetra? And then again - maybe she didn't really know either and just liked the symbol (doubtful, but it's possible). Anyway, I'm just an artist. Art alone is more important to me than what anyone decides to call it.

I didn't assume anything. That is a Trinity Knot and you called it a Triquetra. I was only clarifying.
it truely is beautiful! I wanted a triquesta with a bit of something and here it is!!
