If you are interested in having this piece or any other as a tattoo on your skin, please email me to (faerywitchart@yahoo.com) and make your request.


This picture was born as a comission. Somebody wanted a tattoo combining a celtic knot and the figure of a crow. Those were all the instructions, and after I finished this piece 'It was not what I wanted' was the answer, and even though he liked it, it didn't succeed, so I never ended the process of refinement and polishing. Well, I like it quite a lot, so I post it here. I like how the figure comes out in this version with shading and black background. The crow is a mystical and sacred animal for celts, as well as the symbol of the triskele and knots are magical. Please, if you want this as a tattoo, ask for permission.

Fidj' asked for permission to use and modify my design go here to see how great it looks on him!

There is another tattoo, kind of related to this one here, but is not fantasy enough as to be in Elfwood.

I think this is an amazing piece, and its so intricate and dynamic. I really love the silohuettes of the crows, though at first I had mistaken them for doves. You have a talent to make this kind of art, I'd love to see you make more like it./

:-) Constanza Ehrenhaus replies: "Thanks a lot. I am aware that the crows don't transmit as such. The truth is that I never finished polishing this piece so it has some wrong to it. I am planning to go on to make some more knots soon."

I would like that as a necklace (droollsss.....)

oh, congratulation!

Bows respectfully

:-) Constanza Ehrenhaus replies: "That wouldn't be a bad idea. Maybe when I actually get my own webpage up and going and decide to make a living out of my art that is something to consider."

Please remove the picture of Alejandro’s tattoo on Deviantart! I find it racist!

I’m impressed that you managed to harmonise all these elements into such a beautiful knot! 1

As it is, white on a black background - seems more to me like a Celtic Trinitarian emblem with doves. Beautiful in its simplicity.

:-) Constanza Ehrenhaus replies: "Thanks a lot!"

your design is great, my friends call me Crow and I have great respect and admiration to the Celts, it’s just perfect, I would get permission from your design on my skin?, has some magical significance?

Costanza - I’m part of a paranormal investigation group in the US. We love this piece of art and would like to use it as our team logo. I wanted to know if you would give permission for us to use this artwork on our facebook page, business cards, etc. We will only use it as a symbol/logo, but may eventually use it on T-shirts and other merchandise. Please let me know your thoughts.
