Gauntlet Tattoo, viking tattoo nordic sacred knot

Shae’s Gauntlet

Shae Duff’s hand tattoo is the begining of a full sleeve. We have started on the knuckles but will work our way up through the sessions. This is one aproach I have to bigger pieces. This is instead of drawing out the whole thing in one go and leaving it only lined between sessions.

On his hand he has Hel’s wolf, Garm. It’s places on the hand in the style of the great beasts from the Makmen style. Above him is Hel’s face, followed by a Valknut. This death Knot was only named so in the Victorian period. It’s original name and meaning is lost to us.
