The All-Father rendered in the flesh.  We put almost 4.5 hours into this today and still have a ways to go.

Odin’s birds are known to be Ravens, but the interesting point of doing them as Swallows was to: 1) Swallows work into the idea of Traditional tattoo imagery more frequently and 2) Swallows are smaller in size compared to Ravens.  Their exaggerated-small size really adds to this notion of Odin being more Giant-Size or Godly than of mere mortal stature.

This Earth Mother design was a blast to work on!  There’s a great deal of contrast between the slick leaves and the gritty statue that really make the center focal point stand out even more.

This idea is just absolutely great and should certainly be much more of an international holiday than to be confined to such a small area.
