    Post Runes and Christian?

    I think that every tattoo should be used individually. However, the using of pagan runes with a Christian doesn´t make a sense. Although, the runes are used basically quite unthinkingly today.

    Very nice

    Beautiful. I love the runes. I have a large tattoo on my back of the Aegishjalmer (a runic charm). They are powerful.

    I love the style of your runes! They look awesome!

    I have a few as well. The valknut on my calf has a raven on either side, but i could only get one of them into the picture

    They had literary, as well as religious significance to our folk. Can one person not utilize only one of two meanings in a tattoo? My tattoos express my cultural heritage, and my commitment to my heritage, they don't mean anything specifically pagan, nor should they have to - they were not only used for "pagan" purposes among our people.

    My little contribution, sorry for the lousy quality.

    The runes look squished and stretched on this photo.

    I noticed on that Sunnyday site they said not to use Ginfaxi and Gapaldur as tattoos. Why?

    to me rune tattoos would imply paganism, christians, hel anyone can get get whatever tattooed. But when I see a white with pagan tattoos I assume, now I know wrongly, that they share old faith. From a previous post a quote is mentioned about blood unity being more important than religious particulars. I think the reliogion is carried in the blood, but as always that is another thread. Back to tats, I drew up a sweet back piece recently with a large sunwheel, 14 brothers of Hel, Nidhoggr, Fenrir, Hati & Skol. The true art will be in the details, but that is the rundown. I'm also doing some bindrunes. It is easy enough to draw up a design, the challenge is creating a mark that will endure the changes you are bound to encounter in life and as you grow to never forget the message/oath/tribute imbued in your very flesh. Don't be silly children. The runes are heavy and their weight is the cosmos, they are a lanquage yes, they are written symbols yes, but never forget you represent the folk when you wear them. Hails
    May my failures be my own, may my victories be for my folk

    I'm pretty certian you're referring to another post I made in another thread. I understand their weight is heavy and that I represent the folk when I wear them. I can't help but feel the power of a rune just looking a one. As a boxer and as someone who's been a combat medic in the Army for 4 1/2 years, it only seems to me that the 2 staves of Icelandic Glima representing courage and victory in combat are the ones I need most.

    I understand, and accept that.

    Though, to be honest, most people don't know what runes are anyway, so my explanation simply leaves them with a baffled look on their faces. Oh well.
