These gorgeous hindu inspired tattoos are a tribute to one of the richest culture in the world and are a delight for the eyes.

Hindu culture is fascinating and a great source of inspiration for tattoo designs. Hindu gods, with their dynamic poise, epic look and luxury of intricate details are just perfect for bold pieces. They can express a variety of feelings from peace to badassery, and allow a sense of humor and glimpse of pop culture. They can be adaptated in every tattoo style, close to tradition or freed by modernity.

And of course, the main thing in Hindu culture is color. Amazing vivid colors ! Hindu inspired designs are often displaying a full range of neon pink, blue, green, yellow and orange. They are also great deal for purple ink, trendy again, which is a great news as it is a great bold color. Thus Hindu inspired tattoos are making gorgeous eye-catching colorful tattoos that rock, alone or in compositions close to Japanese traditional tattoos with flowers, clouds or waves.
