Traditional motifs

Viking Raven Bracelet

A Viking bracelet usually consists of a border that is inspired by traditional motifs. or, at least, in elements that give it a Viking air, for example, braided leather, metal ...

Among the traditional motifs, you have a lot to choose from, not surprising in such a rich culture. You can be inspired, for example, by crows or wolves if you want a design with typical Viking animals. You can also choose Thor's hammer or even Viking ships, daggers, swords, or any weapon or object typical of these people.

Another good option is to take advantage of the runes to create your own Viking bracelet. Either with simple designs as with other more elaborate ones, in which the runes can alternate with black bracers, or even forming amulets of protection.

On the wrist or on the arm?

Viking Runes Bracelet

Broadly speaking, these types of tattoos can go along the arm. The designs at the bottom, between the elbow and the hand, are usually smaller, although they can really be as thick as you want. On the other hand, the designs that go in the upper part, between the elbow and the shoulder, tend to be larger.

It is interesting to note, too, that the viking bracelet can be a closed circle (for which a valance is ideal) or open. In the latter case, it will only cover part of the arm, which can give your design a very cool and different touch.
