"I would recommend this coloring to most adults, but probably not for kids. Some of the pages contain some drawings with very tiny lines." Melissa Clary

"As a therapist I have used these pages with clients as a means of managing anxiety and depression as well as encouraging self-expression. And at home I often use them to wind down."

— Amanda Briggs Reynard

Warning... this can be addicting!!

Celtic knots were first used hundreds of years ago in illuminated manuscripts and other decorative arts

The Celtic Knot Tattoo

According to a program on National Public Radio (NPR) the "image of the Celtic knot is thousands of years old. It's carved into ancient stones all over Ireland. But it turns out the Celtic knot tattoo is a bit like the Chinese fortune cookie: American born and bred."

Ari Shapiro spoke with Kevin McNamara at the Dublin Ink tattoo parlor. He said he "can spot Celtic knot customers the minute they walk in the door: young, earnest and almost always American."

According to Anna Felicity Friedman, a tattoo historian who runs a blog called TattooHistorian, There's actually no evidence of Celtic tattooing. There's no surprise there, for a people that live in a colder climate would not have opportunity to show off their artwork in the winter, and the same with the need to keep from exposing their fair skin to the sun in summer.


"It is calming and a wonderful distraction. You can get lost in the patterns and designs and take a break from the world outside."
