Pet Tag, Custom Dog Tag, Pet ID, Viking Compass Vegvisir Etched Brass with Runes

Our pet tag design of the Viking Compass is offered etched in brass with the name of your fur buddy on the front.

I will spell your pet's name phonetically using the rune that corresponds to the Roman alphabet and spell your pet's name using the Roman alphabet.

This Viking Compass, or Vegvísir is an Icelandic word that literally translates to "direction sign" or "see the way". This is said to help prevent one from getting lost and to find their way home.

In modern culture the Vegvísir is often referred to as the Runic (or Viking) Compass. This symbol originates from an Icelandic book of magic circa 1600.

Vegvísir was once drawn on a person's forehead with blood to prevent them from getting lost. We've made it a little easier and transformed it into a pet tag that you can attach to your fur buddy's collar or it would also make a great key tag!


You have the option of adding your telephone and address etched on the back.

Indicate your font choice when ordering and the information you'd like to have on the back of the tag. If you'd like the font that is shown on the tag in the photo, there's no need to pick a font from the list.

Each dog tag is made by me, from brass and given a nice warm patina. We have applied a clear sealant to slow down the tarnish of aging.


Your pet tag colors may appear different than the tag shown in the listing because of photo lighting and monitor differences.
Metal - Brass
Brass is golden in color. 

Each tag will vary in color and no 2 will ever be exactly the same.

Natural patinas vary in shades of dark and light browns to pinkish browns and the pet tag you receive may not be exactly as shown in the photo. If you have any questions, please contact me before placing your order.
