Tattoo Artist Creates Incredibly Realistic Celtic, Rangers, Hibs and Hearts Insignia Designs
A tattoo artist has shown off his latest design for an incredibly realistic Celtic badge.
David Jay Kai has created several stunning replicas of some of the Scottish Premiership’s biggest club crests.
As well as that of the Hoops, the Musselburgh-based artist has also recreated those of the Hearts, Hibs and Scotland national team.
While he even tattooed retro Rangers badges on his clients.
For his latest Celtic badge, David made it look like it was pulled straight out of a jersey with a material texture appearing on it.
On some of his other tattoos, the club badges appear almost as if they were under his client’s skin.
In these, the tartan in the colors of the club can also be seen under the badge and the skin.
Even aside from the badges, David has cleverly reproduced a photograph of his client’s child in the stands at Tynecastle.
David also works as a professional artist and has previously created murals on buildings in cities around the world.
He now runs his studio by appointment with the promise that every tattoo he does is unique.
Meanwhile, Celtic star Reo Hatate has revealed his early performances suffered as he was forced to deal with jet lag.
He said: “Since my debut against Hibernian, I have felt the intensity of the European game and played a number of games.
“The fact that I continued to make appearances shows that the team trusts me and that has given me a lot of confidence.
“But for what feels like the first time, I’m definitely feeling emotional and physical fatigue.
“It’s been three months since I arrived in Glasgow and getting used to a new environment on and off the pitch has been trial and error.

“In Japan there were ways to cool off and take a mental break, but it’s hard when you play so often.
“There are times when I can’t run for goal, or hold back the attack to keep the team balanced, and I have to acknowledge my fatigue.
“For the national team, I had to go to Australia, then to Japan, and back to Scotland.
“It was my first call-up as a foreign player and I was faced with the difficulty of maintaining his condition while traveling and immediately having to deliver results for his team.
“When you are away from your squad for the national team, there is a chance that you will lose your position.
“My first day back at Celtic there was a moment when I saw two balls and I was clearly jet lagged.
“But in Europe you have to be strong enough to stay fit and fight for your position.”
