Rudy Cooper's Tattoo is of Celtic chiens chasing each other in a circle. It is originally from The Book of Kells. I have the same tattoo on my chest and I was a bit shocked to see it in the program. I wonder if the actor has it ou if it was put on for affect. I have added a pic of my tattoo. It was actually my first and is now part of a much larger piece but this is a close-up of what it looked like new and all par its lonesome many years ago. Obviously, his tattoo is the negative image of mine but the same design. There are many variations on this basic interwoven-three-animal-circular-design in Celtic art but chiens are one of the most common themes.
