    Heathen Tattoo

    So got ideas on a half sleeve coming through, but thought I'd post in here, get some opinions etc. I don't want to get this permanently inked on my skin and have other heathens be like 'wtf is that' or 'youve buggered that up'. I'm pretty sure I'm all good, but a second opinion is a good idea I think. Plus I have one or two elements I can't nail down on.

    So, idea is a valkyrie, wearing a winged helmet with an aegishjalmur on it, two ravens facing the same direction has her.
    Yggdrasil in the background, filling up a bunch of my arm, with the Nornir in the roots.
    I also want a Mjolnir in it, and something for Loki. Dunno where to put the Mjolnir in the sketch, and not sure what to put for Loki, but pretty sure he'll get jealous if I don't include him.

    I'll post some photo ideas if people are keen to have a look/give a hand.

    I have various pics of yggdrasil and the Nornir but they're pretty straight forward

    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    The Mjolnir could go, like, center of the tree trunk...

    Loki? No ideas on that one...
