My next tattoo (minus the text)


This began as a Faroe Islands stamp, but it is one of the most powerful and vivid images of Himself that I've ever seen.  I'm hoping to get this on my left breast (over my rune cutting/branding) at this year's Free Spirit Gathering and have dropped a note to Capt. Gordon Staub at Sacred Mark Sanctuary to schedule an appointment.  

A lot of people see Loki as a wacky, fun-loving trickster and that is definitely one aspect of His personality.  But there's a lot more to him than that: it's easy to focus on his joyful mysteries while neglecting His suffering on the rock.  Hopefully this tattoo will remind people of the price He paid to bring us all those humorous stories.

This is beautiful, and a testament to Loki as the World-Shaker and Tortured One. Thank you for sharing this.

absolutely gorgeous image. I think I have seen other stamps from the faroe islands before. This style seems familiar
