Never Get Lost with Vegvisir Tattoos

This Icelandic symbol, aka Viking compass, makes for gorgeous tattoos!

Vegvisir tattoos are inspired by an ancient magical symbol helping travelers to find their way.

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.
