Mjollnir Huginn and Muninn Picture

Do not use, distribute or modify this without my consent. Do not attempt to plagiarize it either, this is under orders of my client, as it was made as a unique design. ... Cheers.


Been a while without an upload, so I'll treat you to an element of the sleeve tattoo i've designed over the past month or so.

Behold, a design i've made pretty much from scratch of Mjǫllnir, and Óðinn's ravens; Huginn and Muninn! I've used pre-existing designs of the hammer, as it seems only apt to pay homage, plus the Horns of Odin on the head of the hammer always make it look awesome. The ravens I added as an adornment to stop it looking bare, and, although I'm totally shit at stuff like this, I'm quite happy with the overall result.

Some Wiki-Shit for those who know naught of Nordic Pantheology:

Mjǫllnir: In Norse mythology, Mjǫllnir is the hammer of Thor, a major god associated with thunder in Norse mythology. Distinctively shaped, Mjöllnir is depicted in Norse mythology as one of the most fearsome weapons, capable of leveling mountains. In the 13th century Prose Edda, Snorri Sturluson relates that the Svartálfar Sindri and Brokkr made Mjöllnir at the command of Loki.

The Prose Edda gives a summary of Mjöllnir's special qualities in that, with Mjöllnir, Thor:

... would be able to strike as firmly as he wanted, whatever his aim, and the hammer would never fail, and if he threw it at something, it would never miss and never fly so far from his hand that it would not find its way back, and when he wanted, it would be so small that it could be carried inside his tunic.

Huginn and Muninn: In Norse mythology, Huginn (from Old Norse "thought") and Muninn (Old Norse "memory" or "mind") are a pair of ravens that fly all over the world, Midgard, and bring the god Odin information.

In the Prose Edda book Gylfaginning, the enthroned figure of High tells Gangleri that two ravens named Huginn and Muninn sit on Odin's shoulders. The ravens tell Odin everything they see and hear. Odin sends Huginn and Muninn out at dawn, and the birds fly all over the world before returning at dinner-time. As a result, Odin is kept informed of many events. High adds that it is from this association that Odin is referred to as "raven-god".

... Isn't Norse mythology some of the most awesome shit in existence?
