An Outlander-themed "Sassenach" tattoo is not a good idea

Bradan Press author Dr. Emily McEwan had a viral hit on the entertainment website Bored Panda this month with the post “Scottish Gaelic Tattoos that Make Me Cringe.” The post features some of the original photos of bad Gaelic tattoos which could not be included in The Scottish Gaelic Tattoo Handbook due to copyright restrictions, as well as recreations of a couple of real-life mistakes for which a photo was not available.

The post has been viewed over 17,000 times and shared over 1,600 times, mostly over the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend – many thanks to those who helped get the word out on Facebook! You can find it here.
