This god is accompanied by a series of elements that we must mention, but the most important detail is the elephant head of Ganesh, symbol of wisdom and knowledge. The trunk represents power, ability, liberation and efficiency. You will also be able to see that he is generally accompanied by a snake, often wrapped around his neck, around his waist or ankles or held in his hand by the great god.

Ganesh is also represented in different poses: sitting, standing, dancing, playing or facing demons. But there are also tattoos that only show his face and do not represent his body.
We can also notice that the hands of this god are multiple: from one image to another, they can go from 2 to 32. Ganesh is represented holding a rosary, which means that he is a figure looking for 'intelligence. In the other hand, he holds an ax, which indicates that the difficulties will be overcome, which will open the way to success and success.

The dimensions of the tattoo require a large space of skin and, because of the innumerable details there, it is generally placed on the back, forearms, legs or thighs. It is a decoration that is suitable for both women and men because gender does not matter when it comes to carrying the image of the god of men. The aesthetic choices vary and there are both tattoos in color and in black ink.
