Armor of Wyrms tattoo by Meatshop-Tattoo Armor of Wyrms tattoo by Meatshop-Tattoo
Finally all done. This is the culmination of 19 days of drawing and tattooing, the most perfect work i have ever done.
The dragons are Urnes-style, with a red light to them.
The pattern is from a vikingage knifehilt, found in Poland.

The idea is to create the feeling of armor, to empower and protect the wearer. I think that worked out.

Picture was done by the mighty Kobaru. kobaru.deviantart.com/
Tattoo was done by Peter Walrus Madsen.

If you get this much tattooing done do you have to wear a shirt in places that say a shirt is required?

That is, without a doubt, one of the most magnificent tattoos I have ever seen.  Truly amazing.

Hi Nick,

Thank you for the nice comment and no you can't steal the picture and reproduce the tattoo. All designs and tattoos are copyrighted. Taking them an reproducing the artwork would simply be a case of theft.
Most of our clients travel to us for their tattoos, so I am sure it would just be a matter of you getting to Barcelona for excellent art.

AFAIK this classic pattern is sort of well-known. Not just from a knife in Poland. Also known from eg. Arab, Japanese, and Chinese ornament. I do not recall seeing an Old Norse or Celtic use, but I would not be surprised to discover one some day. It is most likely featured in "Grammar of Ornament". I seem to recall that it derives from the hexagon mesh and/or "flower of life" somehow (I think; the latter). Just saying. Because I'm a bloody nitpicker :) Great execution, as usual :)

Just because it used it from a specific source, it does not mean it is not found in other places. I have it from many different cultures from around the world, but since my client is from Poland, that is the source i used for it.

Warning! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at word warning! Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten years old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she killed all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that the best idea was to get rid of her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a Monday night at 12 am she creeps into your room and kills you slowly and watching you bleed to death.now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't
