Tatto indo This is the one I was looking for when we sat down together at the shop. I love something like this for the left inner forearm. If there could be more of a straight arrow through the center it would have he symbolism that I’m seeking: Picking a straight course through complexity, smudges (love the smudging on the circles, then crisp lines). I prefer this because it doesn’t go ‘tribal tattoo’, stays conceptual, mathematical - instead of ‘tribal warrior’
Vegvisir, the old viking compass for guidance. Surrounding runes: "not all who wander are lost." Inguz in the middle: "where there is a will there is a way." The 2 ravens Huginn and Muginn for wisdom. Yggdrasil: "the tree of life." Stands for Balance. Supported by 2 runes of time: Jerah and Dagaz, both for decision making. Meaning of this tattoo to me: every step i take toward balance is with a certain thought and memory, strengthened by Valknut and guided by Vegvisir and Inguz.

Going spear-insane lately: This is a small antiqued Norse spear for talented designer/artist @reid.schlegel Heavily etched blade with a hamon line, and engraved twig-runes. Currently working on the oak fact and leather sheath. #spear #bladesmithing #Norse #Nordic #runes #cedarlore
