As Ganesh Chaturthi fever grips the country, several Ganeshas -- some edible, others contemporary -- are making their presence felt more than ever in homes, temples and pretty much everywhere you can place one.
Including your body, apparently. Of the many 'exotic' religious Indian symbols that have gained a pedestal amidst tattoo enthusiasts, such as the ubiquitous Om, the Gayatri Mantra, and the Shiva, Lord Ganesha - the remover of obstacles - does hold its own as a pretty popular permanent marking.
Pinterest features some truely excellent specimens (even if not all of them are permanent tattoos).
