Joseph asks…

What are some good examples of symbols of life, love, and/or reincarnation?

My dad died in 2007 when i was 13, i really want to get a tattoo to represent him. He was irish so if you can give me anything to do with ireland or irish mytholagy or tradition that would be awesome.

I think it’s just a simplified version of an illustration in the Lindisfarne Gospels : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Lindisfarne_StJohn_Knot2_3.svg

James asks…

Steampagan (Steampunk + Pagan themes)?

I like to sketch clothes designs in my free time and this idea just popped into my head so I thought I’d do a little asking about here. The idea was to integrate Celtic Paganism into a Steampunk aesthetic. Any ideas for what sort of things would be good to incorporate or any other general thoughts?

Some background information for you (You’ll probably need to copy and paste these urls into your address bar Yahoo doesn’t always want to make them links automatically):

LoveKnots answers:

I LOVE that idea more than i can explain haha. I definitely think celtic crosses need to be involved. Victorian designs that use fabric (green, black, white, brown, oxblood, etc) with celtic knots as a trim or something…a flowey dress with a corset, combined with goggles and pagan symbols…stuff like that. My ideas aren’t very interesting, sorry…
