The ultimate “think before you ink” guide to accurate and ethical Gaelic tattoos! Written by a Gaelic language expert in Nova Scotia, the book will appeal to anyone who loves Celtic and Scottish culture. Featuring illustrations of real-life Gaelic tattoos gone wrong; tips on how to incorporate Scottish Gaelic words into a tattoo design that honours and supports the culture, language, and speakers; a brief history and description of the Gaelic language; and a glossary of nearly 400 authentic Scottish Gaelic words and phrases suitable for tattoos.

“[An] informative, succinct, and incredibly useful little volume for all with the desire to Gaelicise their skin.”
