Ganesh is the child of the Goddess Parvati and Shiva. There are also several stories and lots of meaning behind how Ganesh came to be, of his birth. According to legend, Ganesh was soon made ruler over all the Ganas, which is a general term denoting all classes of beings, ranging from insects, animals and humans to the subtle and celestial beings. Quite a large title, don’t you think?! This tattoo of Ganesh is phenomenal in the scope of its detail. The fine, tight lines of the head and body help to give it an antique feel. The leaves are vibrant, full of color and very realistic, with great touches of white shading throughout to make the image really pop.
