Valknut.. the viking warrior symbol for protection. 9 points of the triangles each stand for one of the 9 viking noble virtues. (Honor, Courage, Perseverance, Fidelity, Self-Reliance, Industriousness, Truth, Hospitality & Discipline) The three triangles also stand for mind, body and spirit. Triangles also represent change. I couldn't be more obsessed with my first of many tattoos. #celtic #tattoos
Nordo-Celtic knot symbolizing the Drakkar longships paired with the central Icelandic Vegvisir ("sign post"), which is a type of late medieval bind-rune that was a magic sigil to prevent the bearer from getting "lost in the storm". The Vegvisir is often erroneously identified as a Viking-age rune.
