Pre-Christian Celts as well as central and northern European tribes were often heavily tattooed, according to surviving accounts. A Celtic tribe in central & northern Scotland, the Picts, used Celtic tattoos with elaborate dark blue woad (or possibly copper for the blue tone) designs, in fact, the Latin word Picti is taken to mean painted or tattooed people.
Celtic Knot Meanings
Unfortunately the people of the ancient world did not write down the meanings of most knotwork. And it is possible that the knots do not have a meaning or symbol associated with them. During our modern period some of the Celtic knots have been associated with certain symbolic meanings. When enough people recognize a design as standing for something - a symbol is born. This happened thousands of years ago among different tribes. Today symbols are born when a group decides one design shall represent a special meaning to them. Thus new symbols are born out of ancient motifs blended with modern views.
