Petroglyph Ragnarok tattoo by Meatshop-Tattoo Petroglyph Ragnarok tattoo by Meatshop-Tattoo
This tattoo is made in the style of the bronzeage stonecarving, called petroglyphs. The story in the tattoo is younger though, but it was a good way of illustrating it. Basically, it is the story of Ragnanok, when the Gods and the Jotunn goes to war against each other, the winter lasts for 3 years, and the worlds will shake and tremble in the throes of war.
The central piece is of course Yggdrasil, and on the left is Naglfar, a ship made of the nails from dead men. On the right, Skidbladnir, a ship so fine it can be folded away and hidden in a pocket.
The rest of the sleeves are Loki, Thor, Odin, Hel, Nidhug, Jormundgandr, Udgaardsloki, Tyr, Frigg, Heimdal, Surt and then some.

i have a question maybe you can answer. why do some people spell some of the names differently? does it just depend on where you're from? Ive seen Odin/Oden Loki/Loke Nidhogg/Nidhug Jormungand/Jormungandr surt/surtur   any thoughts?

I'm from The Netherlands and we call Odin Wodan and Thor is Donar but they are basically the same gods.

yea, as I recall those are their proto-germanic predecessors (and equivalents you could say). though my knowledge of old norse/germanic religions is more or less superficial. i could be wrong but thats how I remember it

Yes I think you're right but like yourself my knowledge is far from complete. This was just what I heard and read. Do you happen to know where I could learn more about this subject?

sorry for the late reply. The Proto-germanic religion was first referenced by Tacitus I believe. A roman general who documented his findings during the Roman conquest of the germanic area.

I also learned quite a bit from this website. norse-mythology.org/ guy here seems to know what he's talking about. hope that helps :)

Hi Rushinrulet

It is because people are from different countries in North Europe.

Best regards
