the Midgard Serpent has let go of the tail…

New tattoo made today.

I made the picture myself and I’m very satisfied with the result.

It took 1 1/2 hour for the ink artist to create this masterpiece.

Thank you Olle and the others at East street Tattoo.

The picture shows the Midgard Serpent (Old Norse: Midgårdsormen), which is the middle child of the giantess Angrboða and the god Loke.

When he lets go, the world will end, Ragnarök…
