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.

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)

I have been a bad boy and now I´m burning… Help, help, save me… But be caferul, very hot meat here, we could make a sandwich, hahaha… Come on, come on, I´m smelling grilled sausage…. Como he sido un nene malo, me han condenado a la hoguera. Umm, comienza a hacer un poquito de calor, sálvame, sálvame, pero ten cuidado que por aquí hay mucha carne calentita, igual terminamos haciendo un delicioso sándwich… Vamos, date prisa, estoy empezando a oler a salchicha a la brasa…
