The most popular style is the Celtic style which was of the U.K origin. Since Christianity was the religion of the founders of the Celtic style, the designs and patterns are greatly influenced by this religion. It has many designs of the holy Cross and also the tree of life and the design of the Holy Trinity. Celtic tattoos are mostly simple in design and hence are completed in one sitting at the most. They look great in dark ink.
