Tattooed by Hand 

Martin's Samoan trousers

The basic pattern has been derived from Samoa in the Pacific. Since we are Danish, we have added some Viking history.
The runic text has been taken from a cycle of poems from the Viking age, called Havamál, and is in the original tongue. It translates into something like:

Cattle die,
kinsmen die
all men are mortal.
Words of praise
will never perish
nor a noble name.

The whole tattoo resembles a Samoan pe'a and was done in a mixture of traditional Polynesian technique and Erik's own hand tattooing technique. It took two years to finish it.

The other leg has another runic text: A total quote of the oldest Danish folksong. (Translated: I dreamed myself a dream tonight, of silk and honest cloth).
