The Tree of Life mythology is a story that is captured in many cultures. In fact, it is prominent in Norse and Celtic legends. This tattoo is a Celtic Tree of Life and the concept was presented to me by the client. I love doing custom work, so as always, I do my research and get a feel for how the ideals can be captured artistically. I spent a good many hours on getting the art to enhance the lore. Color choice was important to me with this piece as I wanted a deep, but vibrant brown with a muted green in the leaves. Drawing it, during inking, was the simple part, but the color was a challenge to get perfect. I felt very good about this Tree of Life tattoo and I hope it promotes the meaning of the symbol.
