35 Valkyrie Tattoos - Meanings, Photos, Designs for men and women


Modern youth often choose the image of Valkyries for tattoos because of their beauty and sophistication. Few people understand that this is a powerful sacral Slavic symbol of Scandinavian origin.

Valkyrie combines the main traits that a true warrior needs. They are honor, wisdom, nobility and justice. The symbol of Valkyrie implies the patronage of people struggling for their families and land. Valkyries smooth out the negative sides of the war, taking care of the balanced spirit of soldiers. But Valkyrie has not only a peaceful meaning. It embodies the human right to defend their principles. Valkyrie as a tattoo has the meaning of militancy and power.

Valkyries became known due to mythology. Myths describe beautiful and brave maids. They were honored by the soldiers who fought for their land and faith. Valkyries were in the retinue of the god Odin. They carried away the souls of the dead soldiers to his castle and served them there during the feast. Each Valkyrie was responsible for a certain moment of battle.

It was believed that Valkyries influenced the fate of a person from his birth. Valkyries were the beloved of great warriors, such as: Velend, Siegfried, Helgi. In the medieval period, during the witch hunt, women were often considered to be Valkyries, that is, witches.

Initially, these mythological maidens were considered to be sinister spirits of military battles. Valkyries were flying over the battlefield on behalf of Odin and determined whether soldiers would live or die. Later, Valkyries began to be mentioned as romantic and beautiful creatures with golden hair and snow-white skin. They often fell in love with mortal heroes. Over time, Valkyries were increasingly endowed with the fate and appearance of real women who lived in Scandinavia at that time.

Warriors believed that if you pray to gods and go into battle honestly, Valkyrie maiden will bring the dead brave men to meet the god Odin. Odin’s helpers took away from the battlefield only those who were worth it. Those who weren’t awarded with their attention, had to live in the underworld in ordeals and tortures.

Some myths present flying Valkyries with wings. Other tales tell about Valkyrie horse riders that ride horses out of the clouds. That’s why, wings of Valkyries are so popular among tattoo fans.

The world learned about Valkyries thanks to the masterpiece of ancient literature “Poetic Edda”. In the poem, each Valkyrie is called by name, which determines her nature and essence. In translation, all these names are associated with militancy.

According to Anglo-Saxon legends, some Valkyries came from noble families, who were chosen by gods. Other maids descend from elves. Girls prefer tattoos of Valkyries, having read the German epic “The Song of the Nibelungs”. One of the parts of the work describes the punishment of Valkyrie Sigrdrifa, who dared to disobey the will of the god Odin. Odin cast Valkyrie into a deep sleep. After awakening the maid lost her immortality and became an ordinary woman.

For girls, Valkyrie is a tattoo that acts as a guardian, which strengthens spiritual strength and helps fulfill potential.
