As the title of the blog suggests, this article is about Lord Ganesha tattoo designs, but first let us get familiarized with the God of wisdom, Lord Ganesha. The son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, Lord Ganesha holds a significant position in Hinduism. He is referred to as the God of success and many worship him before the starting of a business or a journey. He is also referred to as the God of good health and is believed that worshipping him wards off evil power and obstacles.
Lord Ganesha is known by many names. In fact, there are 108 different names. Some of the names are, Lord Vinayaka, Ganpati, Ekadanta and Gajakarna. He is the God who has an elephant head and a human body. It is said that Goddess Parvati carved an idol of a boy out of turmeric powder and breathed life into it, unbeknownst to her husband, Lord Shiva. So, when Lord Ganesha was standing guard outside their abode and denied entry to Lord Shiva because his mother was bathing inside, a furious Shiva decapitated Ganesha’s head. According to legend, it was an elephant that Lord Shiva first came across when he went out to look for ahead for Lord Ganesha.
