Sleipnir, Odin’s eight-legged horse, a child of Loki, covers Lisa’s shoulder.
Lisa is a talented reenactor and teacher from Germany. We have been planning to make this tattoo for a couple of years and finally we met in 2022.
I have to say for all years of my career I’ve had quite a little experience with the horse tattoos. That’s why I concentrated on making the horse silhouette very precise. It was quite difficult to place all eight legs harmoniously but we succeed.
I chose the Neo-Nordic Style for Sleipnir shoulder tattoo and implemented some elements from Mammen and Ringerike ones. The whole tattoo is made by the freehand technique.
I used the 11 rl 0,35 medium tape needles for the lines and 5 rl 0,25 mm Extra tight needles for the points.
Inks: Pantera ink (Gold edition, and Medium and Dark graywash)
