This little post isn't meant to be an in depth or scholarly look at the topic. In fact I'm going to share a couple of fun links with you:
A blog with some basic facts -
And a link to a cheesy video about fake tattoos on the TV Series "Vikings" -
Also, I'm including a few cool designs for you to ponder over. All of them have some truthful and accurate link to the Northern cultures, some a little more "truthy" than others. All of these were pulled off the internet this morning and I have no claim to authorship of any of them, except the 3rd image of the sword brooch, which is all mine.
These images are admittedly pretty biased toward a "viking" vibe..... but there is a ton of "Celtic" relevance here too. If you want to ask any questions, why not leave it in the comments section.
