This week Mathias and Daniel are sitting down with the amazingly talented hand poke tattoo artist Hrafnhildur in order to discuss the Icelantic Runestaves. In the current climate of Viking fever these runestaves have become highly requested tattoos but do they really have any connection with Vikings at all? Also, where does she weigh in on our long standing debate of whether Vikings were tattooed or not? The answers will no doubt be complicated.
