Design

This design was created by Badger King Tattoo in honour of Björn Ironside, the famous son of Ragnarr Loðbrók.

In ancient times it is said that mighty warriors could channel the spirit of the animals in battle. As Björn means bear in old norse, Badger King has chosen to create him in an aggressive Bear pose in tribute to the great warrior. The snakes within the design are also an allusion to the death of his father Ragnar in a snake pit

The T-Shirt design was inspired by the Mammen style which can be seen on the Cammin casket and also the Mammen axe.

  

Material & Make

This t-shirt is printed in the UK on ethically sourced 100% organic cotton. The design is rendered in the highest quality of detail for sharpness and longevity of wear.

About The Artist

Broc Ó Diolúin, known as The Badger King within his tattoo work, is renowned for his work with Celtic and Nordic art styles. His creations and knowledge also manifest in a project known as Badger Horns, where he shares stories and mythology related to Celtic folklore. Though he calls Llandudno in North Wales his home, Broc’s dedication to the Irish  language and lore is apparent in his work with the ancient script of Ogham, as well as his mastery of the artistic styles seen within the Book of Kells.
