Fierce Nordic Dire Wolf Design by WildSpiritWolf Fierce Nordic Dire Wolf Design by WildSpiritWolf
This is :iconjoergerh: 's completed tattoo of an aggressive wolf done in Nordic motifs with a triskele and a rune worked into the design. I had a lot of fun with this one and played up the fur of the neck ruff.


:bulletred: I do apologize for the obnoxious watermarks but they have been put in place to help cut down on the prolific theft of my artwork as well as to protect the commissioned art that was designed for my clients' use. It is an intensely frustrating thing seeing a design you worked so hard to create being reposted or even sold elsewhere without your knowledge or consent and that does not even begin to cover how my clients feel about it. And that is why the watermarks exist and are going to remain. Any snarky comments regarding them will be marked as spam. :bulletred:


Please do not copy, trace, alter, or redistribute this anywhere in any way, shape, or form!

This design was created specifically for the commissioner's use only. If you would like a design custom created for you, drop me a note or see my FAQ journal entry here: [link] if you need more info.



Lineart: Micron Pen Size 03

Thank you for asking.

The designs in my gallery are solely for the use of my customers who originally paid to have me custom design them and they are not for public use or any kind of alteration other than myself or my clients. However, if you're interested in placing an order for a similar custom design of your own, I'd be happy to work with you on it. 

Or, if you would like to purchase one of my pre-made designs that are available for license of $15 USD each, please click here: [link]

not sure if u know this, but the dots in knotwork/celtic designs are to symbolize how many kids u/commisioner has,, an ive see u tend to place alot, symbolisizing the person u made this for has alot of kids ^^''

That is interesting though I have never heard of the balls having that meaning. I've seen them appear in various Nordic designs and motifs and liked how they "completed" the design.

I'm torn between commissioning a large tattoo from you and another artist, oh wow..

UGH UGHUHG
Are you able to do realistic designs, but with the knotwork too?

I really like this one :aww: I..just keep staring at it :XD: I love the shading/lines in the middle, it gives it a more rough look to it and totally adds to the look overall. The part on the cheek reminded me of Atlantis.....=P

Dire wolves? No. They were basically very thickly built grey wolves though they are not directly related. Closely, but not directly.
