Vikings and The Last Kingdom, are popular TV shows that have given a rise to Viking culture and Norse mythology. The fierce attitude of the sailors who maintaining excellent hygiene does create an impression on whoever watches the show. We understand why people are fascinated with it.
We decided to gather images of people with tattoos inspired by the theme of the shows. So, without further ado, scroll down to take a look at some brilliant tattoos design.
Tattoo artist Piotr Szencel, who is also featured in this list, shared his thought about how Viking is perceived in different countries. “I think here in the North, the source of inspiration is more genuine,” Szencel told Hiptoro. “That history lies within families’ roots. It’s real culture that is still alive, just maybe a bit hidden. For example, when I got a request for a tattoo from an old man, he brought a photo of a Hammer of Thor necklace, which his family found back in the day, and it was passed down from generation to generation as a family treasure.”
“That necklace is now at a historical museum in Gotland. We did the same one on his chest but in my style. That’s a fairly simple and popular motif for a tattoo but that background makes it extraordinary.”
