"100 Denmarks Historier"
is a series of small books on various historical topics from Denmarks past published by the Aarhus University. The lastest edition is on the history of Runes from past to present day and I'm very proud to have one of my works printed on the very last page of the final chapter on the revival of Runes in present day.
Thanks to Lisbeth M. Imer for contacting me and including my work :-)
The book is due to be released in mid-September.
Eric's leg based on a Runestone from Näsby Odensala in Uppland, Sweden.
We thickened up the body to fit the Runetext and also made the heads bigger. This meant that the knotwork had to be much tighter than the original but I think it works much better as a tattoo.
The Runetext is from Hávamál, stanza 18
"Only he is aware who has wandered much,
and far hath been afield,
what manner of man be he who he meets,
if himself be not wanting in wit."
Eric's leg won awards both for Best Ornamental as well as Best of Show (best tattoo made at convention) at the Malmö Tattoo Expo in 2007
