Mythological figures have always been a source of inspiration for art, in India. Cinema, literature, television and everything in between have always revolved plots around Ram, Krishna, Hanuman and so many more. But one entity who rules them all, when it comes to pop culture is Lord Shiva. And when it comes to tattoos, Shiva is probably the most widespread mythological motif in India.

Generally placed on upper arms, Shiva tattoos symbolise and represent varied sentiments, beliefs and faiths. Here are 10 amazing Shiva tattoos that will simply blow away your eyes.
