Sirun of the first Valkyrie

The first of many, this Sirun-project is the first real one of it’s kind, and it is placed on the person that coined the term for it.

 

Viktoria wanted to get a tattoo that aimed back to a more primitive style, yet with elegance and delicate details, and i loved the idea. Through personal ceremony and a good deal of creative processing this is what came to be, the start of a style and a cornerstone in much of my later work.

 

Most elements are based on historical findings from the island of Ă–land on the coast of Sweden, where Viktoria is from, a location teeming with graves and old set stones with carvings.
