    my tattoos disgust people I love it, the baffled look is a chance to stick it to the squares or enlighten them. Either way just wear it with pride and never back down.
    May my failures be my own, may my victories be for my folk

    I have 26 tattoos, but since day one I've been getting Nazi jokes. My first tattoo was meant to be my only one, so I spent 2 years making up my mind. I wanted it to show pride in my family and my heritage, but with more creativity than "Rothhammer" across my back. I got "Der rot Hammer" tattooed to my right shoulder, all around a red sledge hammer, the original design neither the tattoo artist or myself knew at the time, but I later came to find was one man's interpretation of Mjolnir. I chose the old translation of my name as it was written before my family came to America, Rothammer with only 1 h, and with the word "Der" cause I was cocky and I didn't know a better way to translate that fact than the word "the", as if I was so important to deserve singular distinction. Totally cocky. haha There was a short period where 1 ignorant guy at basic training had everyone convinced I was a Russian communist cause it was a foreign language with a hammer. Total douche.

    I don't know, I like the sound of the tattoo. What a badass last name, let me say! Mine is (still German, so pretty awesome) way less "cool" than yours. "Jungclaus" (no Googlers please! :p) which means it was given either to the younger of two Clauses in the village, or Claus Jr. I don't know how to make that into a distinct tattoo like yours!

    Oh, I love my tattoos, and what they represent. I do have a spiritual connection to my ancestors, and to their spirituality. I wear a Mjolnir even though I do not personally worship Donar as a deity, I still have respect for the ideals upon which worship of him is built. So despite that I am not a pagan religiously, I am not so "disconnected" from the teachings, faith, and beliefs.

Whats more is that you should understand the context, the Jews were forbidden from intermingling too much with the pagan cultures in their region, for fear that the Jews would adopt the foreign culture, and the regional pagans used tattoos as a form of idolatry dedicated to their ancestors, which is why it says "for the dead" right before the section that you bolded.

    Yep.

    Too many people pretend that every word of the Old Testament should be strictly followed. They apply it to homosexuality, and the Ten Commandments, and sometimes tattoos, and then don't apply it to people who work on Sunday, or to people who eat shellfish, or people who wear clothing made from more than one type of fabric (like cotton/poly blends!)

    Unfortunately, so many Christians have such a poor literary, or theological understanding of the Bible... why should anyone else?

    Hi rothammer

    you should think about getting one more tattoe. You see the number 3 has very much meaning in the germanic tradition, and 27 is 3*3*3 or 3^3 , which would be considered a very powerfull and meaningfull number. Examples are the 9 virtues, 9 worlds, which are divided in upper world, middle world and underworld (so 3 groups). There are many more examples.
    Christianity later adopted that and invented the holy ghost to implement the three. So i think 27 tattoes would be very fitting.

    just my 2 cents

    btw it does also play a big role in celtic tradition, and in whitchcraft (for example a circle of whitches is 3 : maiden, mother and crone)
    There won't be humans in 500 years. Enough people choke themselves when they jerk off we gave it a name. We ain't a species made to last.

    Judging by it“s name common sense must once have been a pretty common thing. When and why did that change, so it became the rare treasure it is today???

    Norse\Rune Tattoos

    Tats are a very personal thing and if a man chooses to mix a Christian statement and Runes showing pride of heritage he shouldn't have to explain himself. Would not be my cup of tea but hey we are all Northern Europeans here and rowing the same long ship.
    The question is what were the tattoos like on our ancient brothers and sisters. I am sure everyone has seen the Kurgan excavations and the intricate tattoos on men and women alike. Griffins, elk and such.
    Harold Godwinson probably had tats as that is how they identified his body on the field of Hastings. He got pretty beat up! Ibn Fadlyn (sp) wrote of the Swedes\Rus that were covered head to toe with tattoos. There are also ancient Norse techniques that I have read about where they sew the tattoo lines in. Ancient peoples got alot of mojo from symbols and it would be natural to imprint these on the body. Sounds cheesy but I feel power in mine.

    Why would you even think of marking the name of the Jewish god into your flesh in runes of all characters? Why don't you use Hebrew characters instead? The runes are irrelevant to Christianity as with any other Semitic/ Abrahamic/ desert and non- European religion. Anyway, this is what I have so far. Only time will tell if I ever mark anything more into my flesh.
