The Searching Gypsy
Note the tilting of the head in this design, like her mind is far off somewhere else. The placement, on the shoulder, mean that the gypsy is forever watching your back. With the added flowers at the base, this gorgeous design will last a lifetime.
The Modern Gypsy
This amazing tattoo shows more of a modern Middle Eastern style gypsy, whom you can just imagine roving the markets and looking for a tale to tell. The interesting choice of colors on this design really make in pop. Note the added flowers and splashes to make it a complete design. Why not add some flourishes to your next tattoo?
The Fortune Teller
“Look into my eyes, I’m going to tell you all about what is coming up next in your life…”
This is one gypsy you can trust! She looks like she can tell you in a heartbeart the rest of your life’s plans. The only thing that could make it more intuitive is perhaps a crystal ball underneath to really get some further insight!
If you’re after a fortune teller, this gypsy knows all.
The Young Dreamer
A girl gypsy on the cusp of womanhood, this design is both feminine and gentle. This is a perfect style for those who are quite girly but would like a gypsy tattoo that’s not too over the top. The feathering to the base of the girl and along the leaves also seem to soften the tattoo too.
The Glam Performer
Less gypsy, and more stylish performer, this lady has sass, style and allure. The beautiful pinks and reds complement her perfectly and the wrapped shawl around her shoulders seeks to contain her beauty – but we all know that it’s really uncontainable. Paired with her emerald drop earring, this woman is the epitome of old school glamour.
The Handy Gyspy
Gypsy tattoos need not take up your whole back or leg either. This design on the hand is still large and detailed enough to convey the whole message. With her rosy cheeks, large headscarf, beautiful curls, gold hoop drops, and haunting eyes, this gypsy is on display for all to see. Note how this hand tattoo is paired with a few finger tattoos to make it pop even more.
Deep in Thought
What’s striking about this design is that it’s so different from the traditional gypsy tattoos. We really love the bold use of color here with teal blue and brown grey. Alongside the small white pearls they really make this large design shine. On another note – this gypsy’s makeup is absolutely impeccable – the Kardashians could learn a thing or two from her tricks!
I’ve Got You
This gorgeous gypsy has her head tilted to always look up at her master. Sitting, watching over him so that he is always protected from harm. While this could end up being a bit of a spooky concept, this gyspy is full of happiness and light, so presumably is always wishing the best for everyone, and not placing any curses any time soon!
Gypsy and Skull
Why not incorporate a gypsy into a larger design? This one traverses both of the wearers arms, on one side with the gypsy looking out, and the other side with a skull. The same style and colors are used throughout making it the perfect pairing. We really love the grayscale combined with the read, and the intricacy of the needle work.
Day of the Dead Gypsy
This pretty gypsy combines two different styles for an extremely eye catching design. If you like two different styles of tattoos then why not combine them both? The reason that this tattoo works so well is that the day of the dead style tattoos work so well with traditional gypsy tattoos. We really love the colouring on this one too, and it doesn’t look creepy at all, unlike some day of the dead tatts.
