The Icelandic magical staves (sigils) are symbols called Galdrastafur in Icelandic, and are credited with magical effect preserved in various grimoires dating from the 17th century and later.[1] According to the Museum of Icelandic Sorcery and Witchcraft, the effects credited to most of the staves were very relevant to the average Icelanders of the time, who were mostly subsistence farmers and had to deal with harsh climatic conditions.[1]

Vegvisir, the old viking compass for guidance. Surrounding runes: "not all who wander are lost." Inguz in the middle: "where there is a will there is a way." The 2 ravens Huginn and Muginn for wisdom. Yggdrasil: "the tree of life." Stands for Balance. Supported by 2 runes of time: Jerah and Dagaz, both for decision making. Meaning of this tattoo to me: every step i take toward balance is with a certain thought and memory, strengthened by Valknut and guided by Vegvisir and Inguz.
