So a few months back my friend Vanessa hired me to design a tattoo for her. The concept was an original version of Yggdrasil, the World tree out of Nordic myth. It was a little intimidating...this work of art would be on someone for the rest of her life. I didn't want to slack off on this one. After a good amount of research and sketches I finally came out with this.

I felt pretty confident with it. I think it gave her a good design while still looking very 'me'. And clearly she liked it because she went out the same week to have the first pass done!

Thanks Nessa for giving me the hugest compliment of all!


  1. This IS a really nice compliment! Looks great, I love how the tree twists around :)

  2. Gorgeous!!! Wow! :)

  3. Beautiful design and great tattoo! :)

  4. thats a great image, i am actually planning on getting an image of yggdrasil on my arm. it's an image of a tree that mignola drew in a hellboy comic. great work, looks amazing.

  5. HOLY WOW!!!!
    that is FUCK-AWESOME!
    nice work, k.

  6. Love it. I was searching for Yggdrasil myself today 'cause I want a tattoo on my back of it, too. I'm from Norway and I truly believe in the northern gods, and since I can't always be wearing Mjølnir around my neck I want a piece like this to help people understand the true meaning of life.
