Norse valkyrie - Tattoowise
Commissioned design in Urnes style for a tattoo
It's a shaman death mask from the viking ages. This particular one was cut on a huge stone in honor of a dead king, and was found in the city I was born. It's on my arm to remind me where I come from, when I'm traveling around the world.
Alex was laying in my bed and I wanted to take a picture of his tattoo. So here it is. :D
pondering this design. Can't decide if I want color or black and white, or if I want to put rune where the 'scales' are.
this valkyrie full back tattoo was multiple settings over almost 2 years. very fun tattoo.
As always comments and critic very welcome, I am always learning. The hand was stock image from Stock.xchng, the swirly tattoos were from another website but for the life of me I can't remember where! So if anybody recognizes them please let me know and I will credit as a appropriate. Total time: a lot of cups of tea and cigarettes!
Unbelievable what happens in front of you at concerts... Norse inspired 'art', or some octopus... it sure looks creepy. At NASA.
