This is just a test to see if it's working...

Oh, btw to those who were referring what they should call themselves, I just say that I'm Celtic. tongue.gif

I have noticed here in the states that people will say Scotch and I always try to nicely correct them as I have been taught to say Scots.

I've been asked if I'm Scotch, since I wear kilts, fairly often. I usually say "No, I'm not an alcoholic beverage.

On the topic of art and celtic knotwork...or for those who bicker about the word celt....rather than "classical art found in the areas now known as Ireland and Scotland, that has an interlocking pattern of lines typically attributed to those with the label of celtic tribes and clans."

I am interested in designing a tatoo of a celtic cross, usually found in body modification they are typically located on outer arms or legs of an individual. I wish to have a celtic cross tatoo on my back. This would be an expensive piece due to the size and rough complexity of the artwork. I would like the tatoo to go from shoulderblade to shoulderblade and from my first thorasic veribrae to the lower lumbar....roughly 19 inches long by 14 inches wide. If anyone has ideas or suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

The thing I found most personal to me is that my family came from the UK to PA, to the Carolinas and then finally settled in Georgia...


That's the same thing that happened to my family, the McCullough's. There were apparently a great number of Irish and Scots (and my group, the Ulster Scots) that came into America the same way, following the "frontier" as it moved down the Appalachians, finally stopping in north central Georgia. Seems we've been neighbors for a couple of hundred years, Sister CelticRose. smile.gif

Yeah, Shamalama! You and I could be related! It is afterall a small world! My mother was born and raised in Georgia and I lived there myself for 14 years. Still have lots of family back there.............two sisters included! smile.gif My ancestors were Quakers who eventually became Baptists though. What about your family?

Celticwoodsman! That is some Celtic cross you are going to have. did you look up on the net for Celtic crosses for some ideas?. I have seen some real beauties!

celtic rose,
I have seen a few old 14th century ones that I like but it has to be drwan out obviously, and I just don't really know how complicated I can have it, though I dont want 4 simple lovers knots either. I just wanted to pick the brains out there for ideas from artists. I mean the best canvas is the body I think, but I don't want to copy anothers art, I want it to be unique, as well as with some traditional knots.

As I said, just wanted to see if there were any suggestions, I have combed the internet, and some old latin texts...I have a lot of pictures, just not enough skill right now to sketch it out.

Celticwoodsman! There are some really nice ones on Amazon.com. You could get some ideas there and then hire our very own jewelry maker here, Keltic, to design and make you the one you want. Just a suggestion! smile.gif

Maideann Mhath,
I think Seltic pronunciation is fashion and Keltic is more true to the Gaelic -
Ceilteach. I heard Keltoi was the original tribe that from Northern Eastern Europe (Finland, Ukraine, Belorussia etc)
Therefore the pronunciation might best be Keltic, after those people.

Slainte mhath,

Hallo!
Im from NZ, and leaving Caucasses and Germanic blood aside although I'd love to think i've got Irish and Welsh and Cornish ancestry in fact they are predominantly Scottish, with some English, at least within my recent ancestors.

Here's a wee question?
Does anyone know much about the midlands english and the settlement of staffordshire....my Grandmothers maiden name was Gadd and it goes back to the 15th century but may have been changed from Jones.
Any ideas??

Slainte,
Balachasen
