Do you wear a Heathen Symbol, like a Mjöllnir or a Rune around your neck? Or do you even have a Heathen tattoo? Please take part in the poll and tell us about it!

I have a Mjöllnir on my keyring, and enjoy carrying this around every day. :)

I voted no, as the only thing I own with any form of heathen symbol is a single black, long-sleeved shirt with Mjöllnir/Mjölner on a background of flames and with flames on the sleeves. I got this from my girlfriend's family for my birthday last year and only because of the flames, plus its a bit too small, so I hardly ever wear the thing.

No, I don't wear any heathen symbols [yet], but I would if I came across a particularly tasteful and subtle piece of clothing or item. These scarves from the Irminenschaft are great, but unfortunately too expensive for my budget and out of stock anyway: Deep Blue (http://irminenschaft.net/Deep%20Blue.JPG), Herbst (http://irminenschaft.net/Herbst.JPG) and Mauve (http://irminenschaft.net/Mauve.JPG).

I wear my Mjollnir, with pride.

When money becomes available, I will be getting some heathenish tattoos: A Mjollnir on the left hand side of the chest, an Odal rune on the inside of my sleeve, a Schwarze Sonne under my neck, between the two shoulder bldaes that is.
But, that, seeing that there are no finances available, a way that I will resume next summer at the earliest.

My Mjollnir is depicted here:

I wear the hammer of the Thunderer around my neck and my right shoulder is branded with Woden's sign, the Valknut, 3 ravens around it, and a rune circle with the Elder Futhark around them. My other shoulder bears sowilo/sig runes, so yeah, I'm pretty well a bearer of Heathen symbols! ;)

I'm not a heathen but I used to wear a Ukonvasara(Mjøllnir) still a few years ago as a sign of my ethnicity and ancestors. Needless to say, the reason why I no longer wear it is because you can find those worn by black metal teens everywhere regardless of their ethnicity. And all those totally foreign people inspired by viking metal bands and exploiting Scandinavian mythology...well, obviously they didn't get the idea. :rolleyes:

This is my hammer,

http://www.ragweedforge.com/ravenham.jpg

The first heathen symbol I had was a gift from my husband, the Algiz rune, which I later attached to my Thorburns hammer necklace because the string it was on broke.

I also have a sweatcoat that says "Mein leben fuer Odin", a Thor Steinar tee with a runic symbol and normal writing that says "Asgard".

My husband just got me this set for Yule.

All out of pure silver. Silver has always been my thing. I don't much care for gold or any other kind of metal. I am almost always wearing either my hammer or my black sun necklace.

But anyway, I love heathen symbols, and I'm quite proud. I don't wear them around my christian family members though, I prefer to avoid any confrontations with them, as I respect their choice of religion, but I know they wouldn't respect mine.

I have a large silver ring with my name "Brynjólfur" written in runes which my grand-grandfather (whom I´m named after) had forged for him self.

I seldom wear it though since it is a tad large for my fingers

And then of course I own a neclace with mjölnir on it

Thats nice :)

it's not a typical obvious symbol, a nice subtle one..

Question: The design within the inner circle of the ring, Are they of anything in particular?

White Iceland
Thursday, January 19th, 2006, 05:51 AM
There appears to be Odin's inverted head, as if he were hanging from the great tree, and a serpent as the circle itself. The four animals in knots I am not sure. This design is the most familiar keyhead at the viking craft fairs I have attended in Iceland, but I have seen others, also animal knotwork designs.

I think the key is an overlooked symbol for women which should be recognized and worn just as most Nordicist men wear a Thor's Hammer.

I agree.. also if worn on a necklace, it would look nice.
Do Females have a lesser tendancy to wear The Mjolnir than the Men?
I suppose it does seem a more masculine symbol.

Thursday, January 19th, 2006, 09:48 AM
That depends entirely upon various individuals, I have two female friends that wear Mjølner and two that doesn't know what it is.
But I'll bet that there are more men that wear it.

I was told by one fanatical viking reenactor that it was historically incorrect for men to wear Mjölnir as all the contemporary versions discovered by archaeologists were in women's graves.

I have a slender version of Mjölnir in silver that does resemble keys from the viking period. I also bought a women's charm for my neice that has three pendants, representing a flint or knife sharpening stone, a fire striker and one of these slender "hammers."

Mjölnir is a fine symbol representing faith and spirit, and is widely recognized. I prefer historic symbols of items representing daily life, utility and folkways.

Here is the slender hammer to which I refer with the catalog description:

http://www.ostaraversand.de/images/medium/sr360.jpg


Der einzige in Island gefundene Thorshammer stammt aus einem Bootsgrab bei Vatnsdalur, Nord-westland, und ist datiert ins 10. Jhd. Höhe 3,8 cm.

Here is a fire striker:

This is a nice site for reenactor goods and jewelry:

and here is a nice shop in Germany:

Yes, Ragweed forge is a good source, I got my hammer and my husbands hammer from there. I would order from there again, though I didn't like the stuff I got in bronze.

My hammer:

The one I gifted my husband:

I really like hammers with a ring through the top and two chains "biting" down on the ring, but these are hard to find and expensive. :(

There is also a site that has some with swastikas on there too. :D
http://www.ancient-arts.ca/

Like for example this one is really good, there are other things besides hammers there too. But I think its really expensive for a few grams of silver there.

Other than as a pendant around your neck, do you have hammers or other symbols of faith anywhere else? Why?


I myself have Runes all over my home. Runic texts and signs above the doors, above the bed... And, of course, I have a Mjölnir around my neck and on special occasions also wear "my" Rune to strengthen me.

Additionally I have some viking paintings and other artworks decorating my walls.

I have two Thor's hammer pendants. One that I bought from a small craftsman on the north coast of Newfoundland. It's made from whalebone and is very nice. The other is one that my father bought me for Christmas a few years ago. It's cast from metal. I generally wear the one my father bought me just because of the sentimental reasons. I wear it on a silver chain he also gave me as a gift. It's not in the best shape anymore and has been bent and the latch is no longer perfect, but it's special to me.

I have a valknut that I carved out of whalebone myself and keep on my keychain. I coloured it red and I think it looks pretty good.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v253/rykirk/HPIM0211.jpg

I also have a small totem pole type thing I carved out of a short cylinder of wood. It resembles Thor holding his hammer, and on the back there is a sun wheel and some runic inscription. It sits on my bed side table.

I've been thinking about getting a small tattoo of a hammer, sunwheel, Irminsul, valknut, or similar design but haven't decided which one or where to get it yet. I also don't have the money ;)

I have the hammer pendent and double headed axe and rings, earrings, bracers, anklets, etc in silver and beads and leather. I have a shaman's staff. Runes one places unseen and seen. Pictures one can acquire as posters if one cannot afford paintings or cannot make them oneself.

Have you considerd making a shrine in your home? Maybe one inside as well as outside, depending on where you live? Dedicating it to a special deity or ancestor? Remember that our holy places face North. I have a fish pond that is a shrine. I dedicated it by placing part of one of my teeth in the water as a gift. A "tooth gift", as Frey is my patron.

I've seen some lovely pictures of various Asatru indoor shrines or altars. With drinking horns and various accoutrements for family rites.

I do have a shrine on the mantle in our living room with small idols of Thor and Balder, a white candle, recels, drinking horn, etc.

I agree, Wodanesdag have awesome hammers. I myself wear the Wolf's Hammer (http://www.odin.org/th800.htm). For the sake of "on me", it's the only one, I have for example no tattoos yet, but plan to get an Odal rune on the inside of my arm (which one is undecided of yet), a Mjolnir on my chest, and Yggdrasil between my shoulderblades, on the back (although I am blatantly stealing this idea of my best mate, he has it there already.)

Apart from that, I have runic writing on a piece of paper above my room door.

And that's it with my strictly heathen symbols, although I do possibly intend to get one of those Valknut pendants, my eyes are watery everytime I see one. And of course, I intend to get many more things, but see, I am only 17, and I have to get what I can with the limited amount of funds I have. ;)

Friday, April 21st, 2006, 01:31 PM
Remember, Sigurd, what is the fate of all who wear the Valknut. Well, the ones who don't wear it for decoration, I mean.

From what you once told us about your experiences in certain things I would say that the Valknut would be a very good piece for you to wear. But after you have initiated yourself into the mysteries and entered the triple realm, etc. After that it will be major changes for you and a dedication to something and someone (not human, not an organisation) and an oath. We do not speak to all and sundry of these things. The world doesn't actually know it all, as it seems to think it does. But you know what I mean.

I wear the triple horns as earrings, an equivalent. Yes, an oath and a deep journey to the land where the root plunges and the rivers are ice blue and electric. No drugs. Just you and your destiny.

First study and become someone. Then think about your progress into the triple realm and of its High Power. ;)

As you can see by looking to the left of this text, I have ODIN on my left hand, and THOR on my right. I have the raven's head hammer tattooed on my left calf with the word heathen above it in uncil script. On my right elbow I have an aegisjalmur with my own personal bindrune in the center. On my right thigh, I tattooed a petroglyphic longship(the one with the sunwheel for the sail), and right above that, a sword and axe crossed behind a banner that has my name in runes on it. More to come, such as an irminsul on my chest, crossed by a banner than says nordmann, a neolithic depiction of what is assumed to be Odin on my right calf, sunwheels on my knees, and the Battersea and Witham shields on my shins. One last thing...min theodisc geleafa in filigree cursive script, in an arc across my collarbones.

In our house(temporary whilst waiting for our own to be built), we have Pennsylvania Dutch Hexen signs around the house, a Brigid's Cross over the baby's changing table, a family altar/shrine at the hearth, and our banner hangs in our bedroom.

Hmmm....guess I'm just a freak like that...:D

I have two major tats planned -two ravens and a full back of a gotland stone. I have traditional garb (I made) that gets worn for special occasions. We have a cast wall plack of Odin on Slepnir and one with a mirror in it of Sif. The bed has a knotwork blanket on it now and the window a similar shade. The walls have alot of artwork my man did (he's amazing!) mostly knotwork. Two alters, one permanent and one that changes depending on who the latest Blot was to -the items for these are far too numerous to list. And then various other little kitche things like viking or Norwegian mugs, magnets, and drinking horn glasses.

As you can see by looking to the left of this text, I have ODIN on my left hand, and THOR on my right. I have the raven's head hammer tattooed on my left calf with the word heathen above it in uncil script. On my right elbow I have an aegisjalmur with my own personal bindrune in the center. On my right thigh, I tattooed a petroglyphic longship(the one with the sunwheel for the sail), and right above that, a sword and axe crossed behind a banner that has my name in runes on it. More to come, such as an irminsul on my chest, crossed by a banner than says nordmann, a neolithic depiction of what is assumed to be Odin on my right calf, sunwheels on my knees, and the Battersea and Witham shields on my shins. One last thing...min theodisc geleafa in filigree cursive script, in an arc across my collarbones.

In our house(temporary whilst waiting for our own to be built), we have Pennsylvania Dutch Hexen signs around the house, a Brigid's Cross over the baby's changing table, a family altar/shrine at the hearth, and our banner hangs in our bedroom.

Hmmm....guess I'm just a freak like that...:D
Fantastic your tattoos sound great.You must be very proud of them.Throwing a few ideas around my head for my next work.

Yes, I was wondering about that, myself. I have a Mjolnir pendant of gold-plated base metal, decorated with scroll spirals and granulation. I would wear it if I could remember where I put it. I also have an amber ring: a Baltic amber elliptical cabochon set in sterling silver, which I often wear, mainly when my outfit is primarily brown or green.

I did have protective runes cut into the frame of my front door, but when new aluminum siding was put on the house, they were covered up. I don't know if they're still effective, although, they are still there under the siding.

Aside from that, I don't have any Norse symbols in the house.

I used to be really into Vikings and I made a wooden Thor's hammer pendant which I would often wear under my shirt. :D I never actually believed in the Norse gods as any kind of actual divine entities, but more so as archetypes of the Germanic spirit. Although I did find that it served as an empowering reminder of my ancestors' fighting spirit and indomitable will.

Yes. It's technically Thor's hammer, but I see it as the Slavic cognate [ie. Axe of Perun] I've had it for many years; dad got it from a National Alliance function of some sort when I was about 9.

Though only Germanic by association, I do wear a heathen symbol.

Even if I got a "proper" Slavic Heathen symbol, I would still wear this. It's become part of me.

That figure is an example of the "dancing warriors" motif found on the ornamental panneling of Vendel Period Scandinavian helms, namely those from the Sutton Hoo and Vendel and Valsgärde burials. Sam Newton, in his book The Origins of Beowulf, discusses the archaeological evidence for a link between the East Anglian 'Wuffingas' dynasty and the 'Wylfings' of Beowulf (Swedish Ylfingar clan),

There are also close parallels between items from Mound One at Sutton Hoo and some fragmentary objects from the old Swedish royal cremation burials which have been excavated from beneath two of the three great mounds at Gamla Uppsala, a few miles miles south of Vendel and Valsgärde. The easternmost of these appears to date from ca 500 and could be the last resting place of Ongentheow, the Scylfing king whose fall is described in Beowulf (11.2484-2489, 2998).34 Among the burnt finds from this mound is a fragment of a stamped bronze foil, probably from a helmet, showing part of a 'dancing warriors' design (Fig. 8). The fragment is so close in every detail, to the corresponding 'dancing warriors' design on the helmet at Sutton Hoo (Fig. 9) that the two designs may have come from dies which had either been cut by the same craftsman or had been made in the same workshop.35 The westernmost of the westernmost of the three graves at Gamla Uppsala, which appears to date from the second half of the sixth century, has been identified as the burial place of Eadgils, another Swedish king mentioned in Beowulf.36... (Newton, 110).It is possible that the dancing warriors pictured may be taking part in a ritual similar to the one described by Tacitus in Germania,




Their (the Germans) shows are all of one kind, and the same whatever the gathering may be: naked youths, for whom this is a form of sport, jump and bound between swords and threatening spears. Practice has made them dexterous and graceful... (Henderson, 167).


Here is a picture of a reconstruction of the Sutton Hoo helmet, showing the the 'dancing warriors'.

This symbol is also used in Mathmatics. INFINITY is the state of being greater than any finite (real or natural) number, however large. I found this website that has information regarding INFINTY and Mathmatics. Visit: Zona Land, Home

My Heathen symbol is worn on my left wrist , made from Sterling Silver. It was given to me as a gift and was custom fit for me. I have never removed it, ever!

Thursday, December 14th, 2006, 11:18 AM
So.. I do now :)

I think it fits me since it's slightly ambiguous, mysterious and with several historical interpretations. This means I can put some of my own meaning & identity into the symbol - just as my ancestors did, with the symbol playing different roles in different times & places.

I wouldn't feel as comfortable wearing a symbol that represented something very specific or something theistic.

I don't wear a Mjollir/heathanic symbol, but I am still searching for one I like so much I can wear it around my neck proudly. Perhaps a bindrune, but I cannot find the same variations that I actively use.

I'm not a heathen but I used to wear a Ukonvasara(Mjøllnir) still a few years ago as a sign of my ethnicity and ancestors. Needless to say, the reason why I no longer wear it is because you can find those worn by black metal teens everywhere regardless of their ethnicity. And all those totally foreign people inspired by viking metal bands and exploiting Scandinavian mythology...well, obviously they didn't get the idea. :rolleyes:

Hi everybody!! For a first post thought I'd try to start an interesting discussion about what things mean to us, and this seemed the best forum for this particular topic. This was actually brought about because I'm having a series of pendants custom cast in silver. These can typically be found on the internet under the name "Spear of Odin Pendant".

I've caught a lot of Hel from some very 'authoritative' people over the symbol actually being Irminsul, not a spear. The description provided by the original company quickly clarifies this, as it is a version of Irminsul with the Gar rune to represent a spear.


The layers of symbolism added by the seemingly simple addition of the Gar rune intrigue me. For example, the listing likens Gungnir to a pillar, much as Irminsul is. Also, if my history isn't grossly misrepresented, spear shafts were commonly made of ash wood, which would further connect the two. I shouldn't even have to mention the role of the Ash Tree when Odin scoops up the runes.

Finally, combining two symbols into one is practical because it cuts down on how much jewelry you feel compelled to wear :D


So the question still remains: What symbols of your faith/heritage/whatyouwill do you wear (not necessarily on a regular basis), what do they mean to you and why? Any thoughts about the connections I've made above?

UrnesAshTree

I've worn a silver Hammer, every day, since 1990. I have several of various styles and sizes. I've also on occasion also worn a small silver Valknut or "knot of the Slain" a symbol of Odin, and on occasion, a small, silver Sun wheel.

My DSW also wears a smaller silver Hammer. She also on occasion wears a silver traditional Valkyrie, styled after historical representations.

When we dress in "garb", which is a rare occasion, we both have braided silver neck Torcs, as well as arm Torcs that we wear.
And my DSW has a variety of large decorated turtle brooches that she wears with her apron dresses. She also has several nice strings of Amber, of beads and chunks.

You can invest some sums of dollars in nice, decorative accouterments, over the years, if you have them.

Depends on what you mean by a "Heathen symbol".

I tend to shy away from things like runes, Mjolnir, etc. because I find the popularity of these things to be rather tasteless.

However, I am quite fond of wearing a necklace with a replica of a sun wheel pendant that has been found in archaeological sites throughout the Germanic world. It is similar to swastika inside of a sonnenrad.
Other than that, I like symbols from the era of Christian/heathen religious synthesis, like the wolf cross.

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010, 07:51 AM
I always wear a Mjolnir pendant, and I wear it in plain sight. It's a powerful symbol which is deeply connected to our people, and has a strong spiritual value to me. And each time people ask me what this symbol is, it's an opportunity to explain them what it stands for and what it means to our people.

On my chest I have a tattoo of the triple horn in a circle of runes from the Elder Futharc.

The runes, mjolnir and such may be worn also by people who don't know their meaning, but that's completely irrelevant to their meaning. These are strong symbols and I'm not discouraged by people who don't know the meaning of anything.
The meaning of these symbols is not dependent on popularity or common knowledge. Their value to me can only depend on the intrinsic meaning of the symbols and my connection to Germanic heathenism. The rest is irrelevant.

I wear a Mjolnir necklace. I don't wear it for "Heathen" purposes, but it really is a Heathen symbol, and I wear it out of respect for what Donar symbolises, and represents. It does belong in the "Heathen symbol" section of stuff that I wear.

I have runes tattooed on my forearms, but they are not Heathen in nature. I use the runes in this case simply as a form of writing, rather than invoking them for magical or supernatural purposes, or to express any religious meaning. Rather they are a signifier of my ethnicity, my culture, my forefather, and my folk. I would definitely not consider them "Heathen" in the way that I wear the tattoo, and the meaning that it carries for me, though I could see how one could derive that meaning.

I am considering (heavily) a Mjolnir, and possibly a Valknut tattoo(s), though as it is, I would want them wonderfully done, and funds are not at the moment available. I'm open to donations though! :P

I don't broadcast my beliefs because the average Joe would not know what I am taking about. My beliefs are my own. I have a Viking shield and Valknut tattooed into my left shoulder and a Norse Dragon on my right. I Always wear my Thor's hammer. By the way these words. Are beautiful. We can only hope.

Should the subduing talisman, the Cross, break, then will come roaring forth the wild madness of the old champions, that insane Berserker rage, of which the northern poets sing. That talisman is brittle, and the day will come when it will pitifully break. The old stone gods will rise from the long-forgotten ruin and rub the dust of a thousand years from their eyes; and Thor, leaping to life with his giant hammer, will crush the Gothic cathedrals!

I am wearing a Mjöllnir which is forged in fire with passion and devotion by my girlfriend who is a blacksmith. The hammer is consecrated according to my own understanding and praxis of the particular Germanic Tradition I follow.

Furthermore, I have a Thurisaz rune tattooed on my left forearm. For me this is one of the most important symbols of the chaotic forces within the Germanic Religion. If you look beyond the one rune that it represents, it is a bindrune consisting out of the Isaz and Kenaz rune, which symbolizes Niflheimr and Muspelheimr, the 2 primordial forces out of which everything is created.

I am planning in getting a tattoo of a mjoellnir with runes around it. The first raw sketches are allready done, but i have still to think about some details. Then the long waiting period begins. The artist i want to go to is this :

http://www.daluegges-tattoo.de/

He is a top artist, with a very long list of clients, buit that also means a very long waiting period to get a date to tattoo (at least 9 months). But that also guarantees you had enough time to think about it. If you look at his work, its just beautifull, so it will be worth the waiting time

Ah, so you mean the "Icelandic hammer", also referred to as "Vargkors" in Scandinavia? Very nice, don't see so many of them around her for sure. :)

We more or less just get the people who think it looks cool and because they listen to Metal and it's usually always the same "standard hammers", i.e. the Kabara or Hedeby replicas. :P

Also, I have the eye of Wotan tattooed on my back, Othala on my inner arm, I have "blod" and "eldr" on my hands, the "schwarze sonne" on the center of my chest and Muninn perched on my left shoulder. When I die, it will be obvious that I was Heathen.

I have an Icelandic Cross that is patterned off of Mjöllnir, and I wore it for about 3 years or so, but I do not favor jewelry (even wedding bands are bothersome). I used to have a bag of runes but those aren't jewelry, even though I carried them with me wherever I went many years ago. If I had runes on display they would be in a message rather than singular form, but I do not like tattoos either. I'm pretty plain and happy to keep it that way. It must be a Germanic trait.

I wear a Mjolnir I made from a meteorite around my neck.

Then I have the great serpent tattooed around my wrist since 1992 also on the same arm I have a one of the stags that surround the Yggdrasil. This in turn is surrounded by oak leaves. On the opposite side of the same arm as the stag I have the unnamed eagle surrounded by knot work. My other tattoos are either nature or military inspired and I won't discuss those.

I do not like to wear gold or silver jewelry, I prefer iron with a rough hammered texture. In winter I use peninsular broaches to keep my scarf around my neck. These are usually animal figures that I smith myself.

I've had the Large and Ferocious Beast Mjolnir from Jellingdragon for around a decade now. It is so heavy that we went through many leather cords. The last straw was when it broke the cord while I was on a boat trolling for trout on a lake. Luckily, it fell on the floor of the boat and not into the water. After that, I purchased a split ring and snake chain. Later, I had a jeweller fix that ring to no longer twist open and shut, after it was accidentally squeezed and bent by a lady.

Despite usually wearing it under my shirt, my hammer has caught the attention of multiple women. It oxidizes often and a couple have wanted to "polish" it. I even let one do so, and she did too good of a job. Got all the nooks and crannies, which temperorary took away from the depth of the look. Ha.

Long story short: my hammer has been through a lot. It has dings, and a lot of character.

Yes, it is always around my neck, I used to use a braided hemp cord but now it is on a fine silver chain. Meteorite is mostly pure iron, nickel and carbon by time they reach the earth's surface, you refine the iron by forge welding and beating the carbon out, it is tricky to say the least as you do want the texture and crystal structure of the nickel. Pure iron does not rust in the same way modern steel does, but I guess my natural body oils prevent it from rusting.

No, I don't sell on Esty any longer, I usually make gates and fences now, it's boring but pays the bills. I also contract out as a labor force manager from time to time.

I see. Yes I have read that pure iron is less susceptible to rusting. There is nothing to compare with the making of Hammer amulets the traditional way. Indeed there is something mystical attached to the art of being a blacksmith. Long may this craft continue!

Question: Do you wear a Heathen symbol?

My answer is yes. I've got a few pendants of the Mjolnir, some made of different materials, metal, and a carnelian stone. One of them is silver with a red stone (no not a ruby or anything precious!!!) lol. I've also got an ivory one, a wooden one with beads and plenty of others. Apart from that I've got a few styled like the Viking, Saxon or Celtic knots jewels. I've got runes and also a star of Freyja. There is a sundisk too!

I had a chain wallet with Iron cross that fell apart and still kept the metal pieces, but now have a Peace Sign one that has a double meaning, when you flip the Rune upside down.
