In sages from the Viking age including the Völsunga, Úlfhéðnar are said to have performed remarkable feats that would be beyond the abilities of any normal warrior.
We have all heard tales in popular culture of berserkers who in the heat of battle would enter a trance like state when fighting. Similarly, it is said in the sagas that an Úlfhéðinn would enter battle wearing the skin of a wolf rather than any form of armour.
In the archaeological record, an Úlfhéðinn is depicted in the Vendel period on a helmet place found on Öland in Sweden.
This design from Dyrs Hjarta Art is hand printed in the Northern Fire studio.
Material & Make
Our vests are made with ethically sourced 100% organic cotton and are hand printed in house by Northern Fire artists at our workshop in Wales. Our inks are water based and locally sourced and to minimise the negative impact of the textile industry on the environment.

About The Artist
Gloria is the most recent addition to Sacred Knot Tattoo and has flown through her training to become a tattoo artist. Originally a self taught artist, she developed a passion for art from an early age and developed her style through her love of Celtic and Nordic art over the last couple of years. You can see more of Gloria's art available on Northern Fire here.
