Odin - Tattoowise
An example of a religious tattoo used in Heathenry / Asatru. This one belongs to Horsa of the Chiltern Kindred. The artist was 'Woody' who owns a tattooing studio in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. The image shows Odin riding his eight legged horse 'Sleipnir'.
Timba went for a smoke while Rob took a few to check out the work in a couple of mirrors. During that time blood worked to the surface and created an interesting image.
René's son Odin getting inked again artist: Robo Rotterdam
Translation of poem: (138) I know that I hung, on a windy tree, for all of nine nights, wounded with a spear, and given to Óðinn, myself to myself, on that tree, which no man knows, from what roots it runs. (139) They gave me no bread. They gave me no mead. I looked down, with a loud cry I took up runes from that tree I fell. (140) Potent songs nine from the famed son I learned of Bölthorn, Bestla’s sire,and a draught obtained of the precious mead, drawn from Odhrærir. (These are rough translations from various sources)
Lonny's Odin Tattoo
Three random tattoo ideas
I used Unrefined Shea Butter, Mango Butter, Hemp Seed Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Coconut Oil, Carrot Seed Essential Oil, Rose Absolute Morroc Essential Oil, Calendula Herbal Oil and a little Beeswax. The butters help to prevent the itching and help with the scuffing. Hemp Seed Oil has the perfect balance of Omega Acids - PERFECT for the people that are allergic to any fish oil, this is a way to get the necessary nutrients for the skin. Carrot Seed has the necessary vitamins to help for returning the skin to a healthy state. Grapeseed Oil is naturally full of Vitamin E Rose Absolute preserves the clarity and boldness of your tattoos and brightens colors. Calendula is very gentle and perfect for soothing and healing. Coconut Oil is awesome for the dry skin and it soaks in very quick. Beeswax on its own is very pharmaceutical. Mango butter is rich in vitamin A, E and beta carotene Unref
