Hand poked tattoo from a Viking marked in Denmark by Thomas Storm "Sort Tattoo" Copenhagen

done with homemade tattoo tools, made the way my ancestors did it in the viking age. Hand poked tattoo from a Viking marked in Denmark

Valknut.. the viking warrior symbol for protection. 9 points of the triangles each stand for one of the 9 viking noble virtues. (Honor, Courage, Perseverance, Fidelity, Self-Reliance, Industriousness, Truth, Hospitality & Discipline) The three triangles also stand for mind, body and spirit. Triangles also represent change. I couldn't be more obsessed with my first of many tattoos. #celtic #tattoos

Vikings

Know your Vegvisirs. I was drawing these, wondered why the different versions around the place. Nobody can figure out what Björks tattoo actually is, a Galdrabók one roughly done most likely vegvisir symbol

Ok- vegvisir and the helm of awe stacked, ~3-4" long on my ribs. Finally, an idea that doesn't clash with my other ink!

The vegvisir, a Nordic/Icelandic compass rune, worn by travelers to keep them from getting lost. Aegishjalmur (Helm of awe); to induce fear and to protect against abuse of power.
