Many people aren’t certain of what direction they want to go when getting tattoos. There are many choices in the world. Text or images can be used to display many styles and patterns. There are so many options that it seems almost impossible to choose from. It can be very rewarding to find something that is unique and has meaning for you. Although I have seen many cool images that would make great tattoos, the meaning may not be there. The Vegvisir tattoo fits the bill as a tattoo that is both bad-looking and has a lot of meaning.
What do Vegvisir tattoo’s mean?
Galdrabok, an Icelandic 16th-century book of spells, states that a vegvisir (or runic compass) should be carved into the forehead of each person to prevent them from losing their way. This practice is still used today, although it is done using tattoo machines instead of a blade. The most common of the many Nordic symbols that have been passed down through time is the vegvisir. (Bjork even owns one). There is no better talisman than a vegvisir to keep on your person in case your cell phone service stops working or your GPS goes away.
A vegvisir is sometimes called a “runic compasse” because of its origins. However, it’s not as bad as calling it “viking compass” which people often make. The Viking Age is not the only time the vegvisir was discovered. It first appeared around 400 years later. Yet, the symbol is often attributed to marauding explorers who paired it with imagery such as horned helmeted warriors and longships. Although it’s not the most outrageous of anachronisms this is. However, if you showed the vegvisir while asking directions to a Viking, he would more than likely kill you and not know what the fuck was.
The meaning of this ancient symbol is still a mystery to many people. We do know its basic meaning and purpose, though it is not a common symbol to be found on the body.
We will be discussing the Vegvisir tattoo in this post and what it means to those who have it on their bodies. The mysterious, rune-filled image gives the impression of magic and we want you to feel more comfortable when you go in to get your tattoo. Because you’ll know what it represents, we hope you feel more at ease when you go in for your Vegvisir Tattoo. We’ll also discuss the various variations of this tattoo as well as how people make it their own.
Before we go into the details, let’s take a look at the images below to get a sense of what we’re talking about.
Why do you need to get a vegvisir tattoo?
You are likely asking yourself, “What is the Vegvisir?” It’s a great question. It looks like a magic pattern created thousands of years ago in caves. It is very close to what you think it is.
This symbol is called a Vegvisir, and it’s a Norse charm that dates back to the ancient days. The original symbol was found in Huld Manuscript, which was discovered in Iceland in 1860. It also contains more information. The Vegvisir symbol is supposed to help you survive in rough weather. This could be called a symbol for protection.
This symbol is sometimes referred to today as the Runic Compass or the See the Way. The symbol is often associated with Vikings. However, this is false. It is more closely associated with German runic history. Vegvisir was once drawn on people to prevent them from getting lost.
