Ganesh tattoo- destroyer of all obstacles. I had the karma previously done, and my artist worked it in amazingly. This is my third tattoo and was done in deptford, nj at headlight 2 tattoo by the greatest artist, Sarah Cortese.
What is Cultural Appropriation & How to Avoid it
this is so embarrassing i can’t
i don’t even know u and i have secondhand embarassment
awkward that you have permanent tattoo evidence of your racism
what if she’s wiccan/pagan/hindu/buddhist? that’s like saying a white muslims not a “real” muslim.
She’s using it as a fashion symbol basically. The body is considered impure and putting Ganesh on your body is VERY disrespectful which means that they are not of that religion.
Ohhh I got you. I thought they meant it was like “oh not Asian not Hindu no Ganesh for you” or something. Thank you for kindly informing me instead of being rude like most about it.
Do you know anything about Hinduism? Are you just taking offense at something not being available to white people? YES getting this tattoo is disrespectful but I wanted to call out what sounded like complaining about a closed religion. AND tone policing. Is good you see the problem but maybe you should take a second to consider why so many you encounter are angry. We encounter this daily.
Oh and PS please do not lump Wicca/Hinduism/Paganism/Buddhism together. Is not part of some interchangeable alternative religion to Christianity. If you want an alternative faith your best bet is paganism which specifically says to respect closed faiths like Hinduism.
