This is the inspiration for the tattoo on my back. The triskele, three spirals radiating from a common center - is one of the most popular, and ancient symbols of our time. Because the triskele is often drawn using one continuous line, it has come to represent the unending and continuous movement of life. It's progress and flowing energy. I love it.
Claim your Norwegian heritage! The Valknut (or Valnut in modern language) is a symbol of three interlocking triangles, symbolizing slain warriors. Vikings painted the symbols on their shields to call the Valkyrie to take them to Valhalla in the event they were killed in battle. In old Norse “valr” means slain warrior and “knut” means knot.
