Greek Swastika shoulderpiece by Meatshop-Tattoo Greek Swastika shoulderpiece by Meatshop-Tattoo
This project takes some sort of medal in my repertoire of insane ideas. We wanted to do This, but we had no stencil-machine, so in my stubbornness, i freehanded it with a pen, then tattooed it. I started it a bit over a year ago, and it is the wedding present for my friend Jorgo (yes, his wife got equally decorated :) )
Done at www.Meatshop.dk

To be honest, dont show this tattoo in Greece, you will propably confuse you as a Neo-Nazi and get beaten. Most of the Neo-Nazis in Greece at the moment, have a tattoo with swastika and Meander stuff.

Good piece, but be careful. Unless you are really a Neo-Nazi :)

We all have swastikas, and we wear them visibly, even in Germany where there is a law. We have to, cause we have to protect the symbol from evildoers and idiots :)

Hi i am from Greece and i try to help a little bit about the symbol . Many cultures they have it in many variants. But here we find it everywhere in
archaeological findings of Greece, from north to south and the islands. For example look here the symbol 4.bp.blogspot.com/_Il3C_PAhgz0… is the shield of Philip II of Macedon the father of Alexander the Great. If you search you will found many archaelogical findings to see. Here in Greece we say it Greek key or otherwise Meandros, in english meander. The meaning has nothing to do with the swastika of nazis. I hope i have help. Sorry for my bad grammar of english.

Your design is absolutely magnificent!! So gorgeous!! I am
be jealous! And in the center i dont know what is the symbol for you but reminds me the medusa :-P outstanding

I am very familiar with the Meander-pattern, and this piece is based upon it. If you read up on us, you will notice that we are part of a movement named "Learn to love the Swastika", aiming to enlighten the western world that the swastika is not a symbol of hate.

A lot of people are ignorant about swastikas but I really enjoyed this piece. Just out of curiosity I'd really like to know the relation of the Greek culture and swastikas because I was looking to get a piece similar but also worry about suffering backlash.

I never thought I would want a tattoo until I discovered the purely geometric ones as something which resonates with me. So your artwork is truly an inspiration.
keep up the good work! :)
