Fenrir | Organic T-Shirt
Like their father, the children of Loki earned notorious reputations within Norse mythology for their nefarious deeds. Perhaps the most well known involves the binding of Fenrir, the great wolf, who could not be restrained by any chain other than Gleipnir. Crafted from six ingredients (including the roots of mountains and the breath of fish, as well as several other unlikely things) the beast was challenged to see if he could break this chain (as he had with so many before). He did not trust the gods attempting this feat, and demanded that Tyr place his right hand (used for swordsmanship) into his mouth as collateral - if he could not break the chain, he would devour the hand. Knowing the fate of his choice, the god Tyr placed his hand in the wolf's mouth, and when the beast could not escape, it was eaten. Many believe this is a bold representation of sacrifice in the name of justice and worldly wellbeing - doing what is right despite potential loss.
Broc of Badger King Tattoo has included the hand of Tyr appears in the belly of the beast shown in this design, which is printed in deep red on black to represent the blood sacrifice of the god Tyr.
