Posted:The symbol looks a bit like the Tree of Life or perhaps a Celtic cross or cauldron ; not sure though.



Suggest doing a net search on Celtic art, knots or tattoos.



Unfortunately, this site http://www.celtic-art.net/
is down at the moment.



What's a rune? I associtae runes with language.

Posted:Stone you are right - associated with language but also used for divination purposes among others...

The symbol could be a bind rune - which is a combination of two or more runes when mixed together then have another meaning apart from the original runes.

The other thing I would looka t is oghams - could well be a bind ogham.

good luck and please share with us when you have worked it out....

Posted:It looks like algeez or erhaz (same shape different meaning and I sincerely doubt I've spelt those right)
but the drawing isn't so very clear

As I remember they mean invocation and protection respectively.
The court at the Beltane Fire Festival in Edinburgh have them painted on their foreheads.

Posted:Yeah Celts don't have runes, the ogham is the celtic thing and it's more of an alphabet... you can divine with oghams but only because they refer to trees, and the divination is associated with the tree they represent. Oghams are cool. I can write my name in Ogham biggrin

What a wonderful miracle if only we could look through each other's eyes for an instant.
