There's something so incredibly gorgeous about Norse mythology and Celtic culture. -->Yggdrasil. Norse tree of Life.

Norse tree of Life. I love the beauty of Norse mythology and Celtic art. I don't know a ton about Norse mythology but it is something I will remedy in the coming year!

Yggdrasil - Upon the Tree of Life, Yggdrasil, strong Odin hung until he realized what he had come for, he paid dearly, one eye for sure and more, but he stayed the course... ODIN, the ALL FATHER!

Swords were the least common Viking weapon. Axes and spears were extremely cheap to produce and were general tools used in Viking society anyways.

Vegvisir. Norse protection symbol. Icelandic word literally means 'guidepost' or 'direction sign'. Wearer will never get lost, whatever path he chooses. Also called as Runic Compass or 'See the way'.

"Vegvisir" tattooed by : Noel Montejo Place: Dubai United Arab Emirates. it is said "if this sign is carried, one will never lose one's way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known"
