The Triquetra is a Celtic knot symbol which is used for three sisters tattoo designs. The design has interlocking triangles which meet in the middle. For a three sisters tattoo, it can have the simple symbol or can elaborate on the Triquetra to add further knotting or shapes in the background, such as a circle or a heart. Religiously, the Triquetra symbol usually goes with items of three, such as the forms of ancient goddesses as the maid, mother and crone; or the Trinity, as the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Triple Moon

The triple moon symbol is associated with the three phases of the lunar goddess: maid, mother and crone; or waxing, waning and full, depending on the mythology. As a symbol of three sisters, it adds an element of mysticism and celebrates both the sisters and womanhood.

Three Interlocking Crescent Moons

In a similar idea to the triple moon, use the crescent moon symbol in a set of three and interlock them. Have one crescent moon face so the points are upward. Put the second crescent so the points are tilted to the left and slightly downward and put the third crescent so the points are tilted to the right and slightly downward. The first crescent ends up in the middle. This celebrates three sisters and the moon.

Triple Spiral

The triple spiral, which is also called the triskele or spiral of life, is a symbol for the triple goddess or the fates. The triple spiral has three spiral circles, which are connected to each other. It is appropriate as a symbol for three sisters because it can be considered a symbol for the Fates, who were sisters, according to mythology.


For a personal tattoo design, sisters can have their initials made into an interlocking symbol. This can create a unique symbol which not only represents sisterhood, but also the three sisters within a single family.
