ALL IN THE FAMILY
For some people, the meaning of their tattoos is everything.
An image on the body is a silent form of language that requires nothing but a glance to establish communication - or even a self-reminder. It can represent values, personal history, cultural preferences, and so on.
Just like letters used to be considered symbols to translate the sounds we speak (now they're called letters), there are specific ones that have transcended generations and survived the test of time due not only to their originality as a design but also to their meaning.
The Triquetra for instance: from the Latin adjective triquetrus, it means "three-cornered" (and pronounced "/traɪˈkwɛtrə/"), it is a triangular figure composed of three interlaced arcs - or three overlapping lens shapes called Vesicae Piscis, which is a type of lens, a mathematical shape formed by the intersection of two disks with the same radius, intersecting in such a way that the center of each disk lies on the perimeter of the other.
For some scholars, it is a sacred geometric form. In architecture, it is used as an ornamental design. It is found in similar artwork on early Christian High Crosses and slabs.
The symbol has been interpreted as representing the Christian Trinity, especially since the Celtic revival of the 19th century. Also regularly used as a Trinitarian symbol in contemporary Christian iconography.
And for the Wyatt family, something more.
What started for Max (on the right) as a symbol of his liking based on all of the aforementioned information - if not more -, became the unofficial family crest.
A decision that didn't take long for his father Jim (in the middle) to be convinced of to be his first tattoo.
Sam (on the left), after hearing the news, drove immediately to the studio and joined the winning team; the shortest pondering period ever taken to have a tattoo on the spot.
And yet, great service was delivered by Bruno & Petr - responsible for the development and enhancement of the symbols on their skin.
Now the three men of the Wyatt family have a day to remember forever in their history - literally imprinted on their skin.
Like Father, like sons indeed.
