Growing up in modern times made many young people notice how neglected and underrepresented Slavic culture is in world-wide news media outlets, PC games and even Hollywood movies. With people seeing this trend more and more, there is more of us interested in our roots and our culture that many don’t talk about too much. In Poland a lot of Slavic focused things are happening in the last few years, from pop-culture music by Donatan & Cleo, to video game titles as Witcher 3 and lately a lot of ordinary people finally started picking their own cultural motifs for their tattoos.
We can also see such fascinations across the other Slavic countries where popular Rodnovery symbols are being tattooed. In Poland what’s been popular recently is beautiful and unique portraits of the Slavic gods or demons – unique personal interpretations of their appearance by the tattoo artists explains Lamus Dworski.
With the growth of the interest by the Polish people themselves in learning more about our pre-Christian Slavic mythology and faith, we can also observe a growing trend in exploration of the Slavic themes in various forms of art.
