Dorie told me these are ancient Hungarian runes. She was born and raised in Hungary, so these have particularly special meaning to her. In fact, she explained, "this is all my personal beliefs." She would not elaborate further, as is her right. The runes cascade down her arms in a very public presentation, yet she holds them true to her own self privately, despite their visibility.
She credited an artist from Europe named James, who tattooed her here in Brooklyn, but has since moved back across the Atlantic.
Thanks to Dorie for sharing her runic tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!
