The Vanishing Tattoo

Lingam: - a stylized phallic symbol that is worshipped in Hinduism as a sign of generative power, and that represents the god Shiva. (from: Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary) Shiva in the form of the lingam (or "linga") appears in temples throughout India. It isn't worshipped for itself, but as a visible symbol of an invisible force - the most primal energy of the Creator - which is present in everything. When Creation comes to an end (we here at Vanising Tattoo are not predicting this any time soon), Hindus believe that the many different facets of God come home to roost in the Shivalingam. Worshipping gods in such an impersonal and abstract manner - God without form - is more common in Islam, but Hinduism has no problem with its gods possessing personal characteristics as well. An anthropomorphized god makes it easier for mere mortals to focus their prayers.
