Celtic Pet Portrait Commission


In the words of the artist, Badger King Tattoo:

I will create a custom digital illustration in the Celtic style of your pet or any animal.

The Celtic manuscript style found in medieval Ireland and Britain has always been a passion of mine. These intricate images of animals in profile, intertwined with foliage and their own bodies have fascinated people for centuries. Now your pet can be a part of that tradition.

Your pet or chosen animal will be immortalised in the Celtic style with accompanying knotwork. The option for two animals in a single illustration is also provided. Please message here for a custom listing if you require any extras, eg: three or more animals, a favourite toy, a tree branch, more complex knotwork, or if you yourself would like to be in the drawing.

About The Artist

Broc Ó Diolúin, known as The Badger King within his tattoo work, is renowned for his work with Celtic and Nordic art styles. His creations and knowledge also manifest in a project known as Badger Horns, where he shares stories and mythology related to Celtic folklore. Though he calls Llandudno in North Wales his home, Broc’s dedication to the Irish  language and lore is apparent in his work with the ancient script of Ogham, as well as his mastery of the artistic styles seen within the Book of Kells.
