    *Greetings*

    I have two separate tats involving runes...

    I have Wunjo surrounded by the words "Live Love Laugh" in a circle, with a little ladybug, honey bee, or dragonfly (symbolizing my daughter, myself, and my Mom, respectfully) between each word, to remind me to live joyfully!

    I had Mannaz Othala Mannaz added (after my Mom's passing to the Summerland) to the center of a piece my Mom and I had both gotten, of a clover in a star, resting above a celtic knot moon (with tips pointed up) as a symbol of our being Priestesses.

    Both have been constant reminders of our loving bond of Mothers and Daughters, and how important that bond is!

    I don't have a runic tattoo, but I do have a chaostar with a coyote paw in the center.

    I am really interested in getting a rune tat. I want it on one or both of my fore arms, and i want it act as a permanent charm in a sense. protection, courage, love, insight.

    I want the runes to be large, about the size of my hand. Anyone have any ideas.
    Herein the day of upon us
    Much less caring
    For others haunts us
    No one can make another
    Promise to us

    You find it strange how
    The darkness calms us
    Alone at home and hopeless

    Drown in the life
    We've left behind us

    Lately I've been considering getting a Vegvisir, though that was way before I ever even knew about Bjork!

    Attached you should finsd a couple of bindarunen, bindrunes. The first is a bind of Sowilo and Tiwaz; this combination is known as SigTyr... Sig is the German name for the Sowilo rune; it's also German for victory. It is the rune sung under the shield's rim for protection...

    That eleventh I know, if I am to lead
    Old friends into the fray:
    Under shield-rim I sing so that swiftly they fare
    Hale and whole to and from battle:
    Hale where’er they may be.
    Havamal 156:1-5

    Of course, Tiwaz for courage should be obvious. These two together make an ages-old bindrune for victory, courage, and protection in battle.

    The Trefot bindrune is comprised of three Laguz runes. Laguz is the rune of the emotions. It's also the rune of spirituality and the psychic self. I think this one fits the bill for love and insight.
