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.

(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)

Eventually, though, I just started to feel like a phoney. So, I decided that maybe this wasn't the best time for my 365 project, said good-bye, but vowed to start again when my personal life settled down. Well, lo and behold I have really missed my 365. I know it is probably "against the rules" to take a few days off and then re-start it, but that's exactly what I think I'm going to do. Of course, if I make it through all 365 photos I won't call it "official". In fact, I jus
