    Harmful Rune Tattoo?

    The other day I booked an appointment to get a runic tattoo done, but since then I've realised the runes I wanted might be potentially 'harmful'

    thorn + eoh + daeg = theod = "tribe"

    I've just read that thorn (thurisaz) might has connections to giants/thurs?

    Am I worrying over nothing?

    I made a scarification of a Thurs-rune on my left upper arm like 20 years ago. I don't know if it has meant anything negative for me. I am like chronically followed by bad luck and misery, however I don't know if this is a result from that. I can't remember if this was the case before the scarification, but I suppose things were like this before that too - even if it seems to worsen constantly.

    Thurisaz IIRC is the name of Skadi's giant father. But using it doesn't mean calling upon giants, or calling them down on you or some such.

    Remember, there are a lot of connections to giants int he gods themselves. For instance Thor is half giant. But I don't see wearing his Mjolnir symbol as a worrisome thing to anyone.

    Depends on the context you are using them in. Because not every rune-inscription is an act of magic.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    Do not use the thorn rune it is linked to Gerd the giantess and its a distress bringer and hex rune, unless you are working with this power I do not advise this. Protection is always the rune algiz, eloyx. valkeria
    Direction tyrvaz purpose god Tyr
    firing rune; fehu; accumalation into being; Goddess Frejya
    new day; dagvaz; awakening; Goddess Hronn
    good luck; gebo; gift of recieving; Goddess Gefion
    birth; beorkano ;birth an development; Godess Bircha
    as an example.

    If you are going for the 'TH' of Thurisaz, then it is correct. If you are wanting it for the 'T' sound, go with Tiwaz/Tyr rune.

    Seeing as he wants to write "theod", Thurs would be correct ^^

    Remember that a lot of the things people claim some runes represent are just some silly new-age stuff.

    I personally wouldn't do it. I'm not experienced enough to say whether it could bring you harm if you didn't actually channel its energy, and only used it as writing, but still, my opinion, don't.

    Thank you all for you replies

    With all the conflicting opinions I'm glad I managed to change what I was getting to something else, this time just a germanic pattern around my arm instead of the runes. I think I'll wait a little longer until I get any runes tattooed on me, once I understand them a bit better...
