Ancient pazyryk tattoosNovember 25, 2021
Damiano is an archaeologist, when he approached me for this tattoo I could only look for a design that is as faithful as possible to true Viking art.
I tried to design this piece trying to remain as faithful as possible to the rules of the Viking knot developed in Scandinavia between the end of the 900 and the beginning of the year 1000 and which we can still admire today in handcrafted pieces of great value such as the caskets of Bamberg and Cammin.
The goal was to make a Viking art piece as less "modern" or "inspired by" as possible by trying instead to design something that could have been built in the same way by those craftsmen over a thousand years ago.
