A illustration of Odin from the rpg book Yggdrasil
Odin, as the tale goes, hung upside down from Yggdrasil, the World Tree, for nine days and nights, seeking vision. When it did come, each moment was an unfolding surprise, as he glimpsed the wordless shape of thought itself.

Second submission, 3rd tatto.o.Odin’s two ravens Hugin and Munin (thought and memory) every day he would release them to fly around the earth and they would return to him and bring him news. In the Poetic Eddas it states
Hugin and Munin fly each dayover the spacious earth.I fear for Hugin, that he come not back,yet more anxious am I for Munin
Which is true for me, no one wants to lose their mind and I’ve always had a notoriously bad memory, so this will help me with it. And I got the runes for “memory” over my heart because thats where my memories need to say.The shoulder tattoo is older and submitted last october.This piece was done at Immortal Images in Charlotte NC by Nick. Every one in that shop is very very talented
