Viking gods and goddesses tattoo-Skadi

Skadi- the goddess of hunting and winter, also the ski goddess (old norse "öndurdis"), after her possibly Scandinavia is named.
Her fathers eyes got put by Odin in the sky as two stars and she is married to Njord, the god of the sea. Not a happy marriage, i should stress, because they are so different, she dislikes the sound of the seagulls and misses the mountains, he hates the howling of the wolves and misses the sea. Luckily in Scandinavia mountains and sea are right beside, so they change every nine days.
She lateron also fixes the snake over Lokis head, that drips her venom on him.
