about

This book helps readers to choose an appropriate word or phrase for a tattoo in the Scottish Gaelic language. Gaelic is growing in popularity due to the media phenomenon of "Outlander" as well as people exploring their ancestry. Many people want a tattoo with a Gaelic word or phrase to tell a story about their Scottish or Celtic roots. But most people can't find the accurate information about Gaelic that is needed to get a good tattoo. They try to do their own translations instead and end up with embarrassing mistakes. This book can help; it contains a glossary of nearly 400 authentic Gaelic words and phrases, history and description of the Gaelic language, examples of real-life Gaelic tattoos that went wrong, advice on how to avoid common mistakes, and insights on how to incorporate Gaelic words into a tattoo design that honours and supports the culture. The book focuses on language and does not contain artwork. This book is for tattoo enthusiasts and anyone with an interest in Celtic, Scottish, and Gaelic language and culture.
