33 Spiritual Ganesha Tattoo Designs

Like any other tattoos depicting gods, a Ganesha tattoo has powerful religious and spiritual meanings.

Ganesha, also known as Ganapati, the deity with a human body and elephant head is one of the most popular divinities in Indian religious pantheon. He is venerated as the one who removes obstacles and as a patron of the arts and sciences, the god of intellect and wisdom. It is honored at the beginning of rituals and ceremonies and is invoked during literary creation sessions.

Ganesha is represented as being short in stature, with a large and round belly and having four arms and an elephant head with a single tusk (the other tusk being broken). In three of his hands, he holds an ax, a rope, and a chickpea cake. With the fourth hand, he makes a gesture of granting his divine favors. He rides or is accompanied by a rat, a former demon, which he defeated and then accepted as a vehicle.

God of success and destroyer of obstacles, both material and spiritual, Ganesha is the divinity of every man, his image being seen in both poor houses and in the wealthy palaces. As a god associated with learning and commerce, education, knowledge and wisdom, literature and beautiful arts, Ganesha is revered in the Indian communities around the world.
