FROM THE ARTIST
“I like to think of what I do as culturally-based tattooing. Studying various tattoo traditions allows me to put a contemporary spin on my designs while maintaining the look and feel of the original tradition.”
yggdrasil "World Tree"
Yggdrasil (from an Old Norse translation) is an immense mythical tree that plays a central role in Norse cosmology, where it connects the Nine Worlds. It also translates well into tattoos that flow with the body.
Skoll Chasing the moon
Norse mythology states, when Ragnarok breaks the sky and the Yggdrasil trembles, darkness will fall upon the cosmos. We can attribute this darkness to the wolf Skoll and his counter part Hati for finally eating the moon and sun.
Tahitian Polynesian Tattoo
Jim began collecting tattoos from Rory nearly 10 years ago, and has since completed an impressive Tahitian or Polynesian inspired left side panel. His tattoo includes a half dozen of his favorite sea creatures and a smily face.
