Marcail an Cloigeann by 6SeaCat9 Marcail an Cloigeann by 6SeaCat9
Title means, "Mark of the Skull" in Irish Gaelic.

This picture is meant to show off Sea Cat's tattoo, which she got some time after she joined Garin's crew and came to live among pirates in the region around Krawk Island. The design is supposed to both pay tribute to her Irish heritage and her live as a pirate, so basically her tattoo is like an Irish skull and crossbones, or like a Celtic Knot pirate flag.

I'd like to thank :iconunlimited-tea: and :iconthesuckerpunched: for the help in coming up with ideas for this tattoo. You guys were a big help!

Yeah but they take FOREVER to do. X3 My bro got one on his back with an Irish Tree of Life, and it took days.

:shock: Wow... now THAT is insanely impressive! Ya know suddenly I can see Sea Cat getting into a fight as the Govenor with Garin and his crew and they see that tattoo on her back all of them in shock as Sea Cat taps into that infamous Class One Blood Rage.

That'd be honestly quite awesome, but they already knew about the tattoo long before she became Acting Governor of Tartaruga. ;)

I should write a ficlet about it. Basically they knew she had gotten a tattoo but had no idea where or of what, so they kept making bets with each other over where the tattoo was and what it was of, and making jokes about it and stuff, but when they finally saw it... XD lets just say nobody lost or gained ANY money.

Oh okay, that makes sense.
 
:D Now THAT sounds like the Pawkeet crew I know! XD Shame none of em made any moeny on that bet, but I guess they didn't lose any either. So a win-win for all of em.

XD Actually, by the end of a few weeks, they couldn't take it anymore, so they tried to get her to tell them while they were having lunch in the galley (or maybe in a public tavern somewhere, I haven't decided), and this is after several of them already had pestered her, and she just gets so fed up that she stands up, and starts unbuttoning her shirt.

The whole crew is like 'WHOAWAITWHUT' (and someone probably covered Sam's eyes, lol), but she turns around and lowers her shirt just enough for them to see the tattoo, then fixes her clothes and sits down like a Boss-Ass-Bitch and keeps eating.

:D And suddenly I can just hear the celtic song Grianne Mhaol Queen of the Pirates playing. :XD: And it would most likely be Victor or Jacques who covered Sams eyes. ^_^

I kinda wanna write this out now, it'd be hilarious!

And I may or may not have a slight headcanon that one of Sea Cat's ancestors on Earth was Grace O'Malley... *cough*

I'm still in the plotting stage. Remember I'm re-writing this thing from the ground up, it could take months for me to plot it out again.

The round knot is known as "the window to the soul" and has many variants. I have a necklace version of it, and the skull was harder to find, since I wanted to patterns to match.

Thanks again you two!
