On St. Patrick’s Day, Everyone’s a Little Irish

The phrase “Kiss Me, I’m Irish” has been used as a drunken pickup line for decades. This St. Patrick’s Day, we are singing that phrase to our tattoo artists… whether we have celtic blood in us or not.

There is so much imagery for the “Irish tattoo” to choose from. Yes there is the four-leaf clover and the leprechauns, but the claddagh and wolves are prominent symbols as well.

And, of course, the Dropkick Murphys.

As we are celebrating Irish heritage with Irish ink, it’s only right to bring you 100 tattoo inspirations, so you too can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a St. Patty’s Tattie.
