According to Hindu Mythology, Ganesha refers to the “lord of the hosts,” is one of the most well-known and venerated representations of God. Ganesha is also considered the master of intellect and wisdom.
The cult of Ganesha is widely diffused, even outside of India. His devotees are called Ganapatya. The ganapati festival is celebrated with great enthusiasm and devotion throughout India but in Mumbai, the financial capital of the Country, the festival assumes a special significance because of the scale at which it is performed.
This Ganesha Tattoo expresses a state of perfection as well as the means of obtaining it.
Ganesha, in fact, is the symbol of he who has discovered the Divinity within himself.
Ganesha is the first sound, OM, in which all hymns were born. When Shakti (Energy) and Shiva (Matter) meet, both Sound (Ganesha) and Light (Skanda) were born.
He represents the perfect equilibrium between force and kindness and between power and beauty. He also symbolizes e the ability to perceive distinctions between truth and illusion, the real and the unreal.
Ganesha Tattoo Seekers see him as the Lord of Good Fortune who provides prosperity and fortune and also the Destroyer of Obstacles of a material or spiritual order. It is for this reason that his grace is invoked before the undertaking of any task.
Moreover, Ganesha is associated with the first chakra (energy wheel), which represents the instinct of conservation and survival, of procreation and material well-being.
This black and grey Ganesha tattoo was done by Pradeep junior at Astron Tattoos located in Bangalore. A former client of ours came in with a very clear idea of getting Ganesha’s portrait on his upper arm. This tattoo is a great example of high detailing in Indian religious art.
