Tattoo Ideas1 min Read

A dark deity always makes a cool tattoo!

Mahakala tattoos are a bold design that you won't soon forget. 

Common in Hinduism, Sikhism and Buddhism the deity Mahakala is a fearsome character. The husband/consort of Hindu goddess Kali. Mahakala is equally as impressive. Meaning 'beyond time' Mahakala has four arms, three eyes, and is adorned with eight skulls a trident and a sword! Not to mention he's covered in the ashes from a cremation field where he dwells. Certainly, an intimidating deity Mahakala is a figure greatly respected and feared. 

Often tattooed in a bright fashion Mahakala tattoos come in all shapes and sizes, from small fillers to full back tattoos. A tattoo you won't see very often Mahakala designs are to be appreciated when you do see them, and thankfully we've got an awesome selection for you to enjoy!
