It wouldn’t be a holiday on Alternatively Speaking without somehow connecting it to tattoos, right?

I spent yesterday searching the internet for Irish inspired and St Patrick’s Day inspired tattoos. This includes leprechauns, shamrocks, and Celtic designs. This is a fun mix of bigger works and more subtle pieces, black and white and colour work, a little something for everyone!

I say this on every tattoo roundup post, but I’ll add it again… I source all images that I share. That being said, there are times that I choose to share a tattoo off of Pinterest or a third-party site that doesn’t include information about the actual artist. If you ever see an image that you recognize first hand, please fire me a message and we can take steps to verify and then credit the artist. I am all for giving tattoo artists the credit that they deserve!

  1. These are some pretty tattoos! I like the small black & white one behind the ear the most. Just because it’s actually quite simple! ~

    1. Sometimes the simplest designs turn out to be the best! My wrist piece is a simple black design for that reason

    1. I was pleasantly surprised with just how many I was able to easily find online – made it super easy to put the round up together!
