Claddagh Split

Steve and I were chatting about art over beers and the topic of hands came up. We lamented how hard hands are to draw and, by extension, how many tattoos with hands look awful. Notably, a lot of tattoos of the iconic Irish symbol, the claddagh, have fingers that look more like bananas. Steve joked that we should do a claddagh where the fingers actually were bananas. Over a few more beers, we worked out the design, a few sketches revealed that doing banana fingers would be too vague and likely just look like another poorly-done claddagh. Finally, Steve drew up our compromise, a claddagh with a thematic shoutout to banana fingers, the claddagh banana split.
