Vegvisir tattoos are also called "Viking compass", even if they are definitely not linked with this culture. They first appear in a 16th-century manuscript, called Galdabrok ("the book of magic"). Wearing vegvisir symbols is supposed to protect travelers during rough climatic conditions. In tattooing, this trendy circular symbol is a good alternative for mandalas. With their mysterious Norse look, vegvisir tattoos are edgy and perfect to complement a bigger piece.
