I found an image I thought would make a nice tatoo - but you'd have to invert the colours, I guess, and make the image a bit "cleaner" with less detail. I actually have a bird tatood in my arm, I'll see if I can find pic! (Although I wouldn't like anyone to use my special bird as a tatoo, it's kind of my bird!;) )

The Raven Magic, Healing, Creation If a raven totem has come into our life, magic is at play. Raven activates the energy of magic and links it to our will and intention. With this totem, we can make great changes in our life;the ability to take the unformed thought and make it reality. The raven shows us how to go into the dark of our inner self and bring out the light of our true self;resolving inner conflicts which have long been buried. This is the deepest power of healing we can possess.

Ok, this is what I can remember but it is not really about a raven. I am the circle of life, Sacred spiral, Spinning the self into the centre of the soul I am the snake swimming The sensuous serpent I am Dagtha the all powerful shaman sorcerer I am sacred phallus standing stone Planted in earth where Dagtha and Morrigan unit I am horned Keranomath dancing the spring rite So that all may become magically fertile I am Morrigan,**** and***** Chief of the powers divine Initial progeny of worlds Manifest alone and under one form Birthing the soul into winter darkness Mistress of sea, sky and shore I am Shelanagig Luring men on to certain doom I am the wise raven crying aloud that enemies infest the fair fields I am the raven ravenous, feasting on the bodies of men I am the red in the feast of Luginasad I am oppression and outcry and war everlasting I am the Celtic soul take care simon

The raven is and has always been my favourite bird. It's quite common in Iceland and most people think of it as a burden but I think it is a beautiful bird. If you haven't found an image searching for "raven", try the Icelandic name for it, "Hrafn" and see if you get more images.

Thanks a million! I know ravens are common in Iceland - sad to say they aren't in Sweden but I actually have a couple that moved in to the neigbhourhood shortly after I realized what that perticular bird means to me. I really do want to go to Iceland! It is such a beautiful country!
