The Irish Gaelic Tattoo Handbook

Does “An bhfuil cead agam dul go dtí an leithreas” mean “Always in my heart” or “May I go to the toilet”? If you’re not sure, you need this book! Learn how to incorporate Irish words into a tattoo design that honours the Celtic language and culture of Ireland – and avoid a tattoo nightmare! Featuring a glossary of over 400 authentic Irish Gaelic words, phrases, and sayings, illustrations of real-life Irish tattoos gone wrong, and tips on how to use the internet to your advantage when designing your tattoo. Also suitable for those seeking translations for gifts, artwork, or jewelry.
