Each style of tattoos has a series of icons or elements associated with them that, over the years, having been tattooed on so many occasions, are quickly associated with the different styles of tattoos that we can find today. In the case of old school style tattoos, gypsy women, also known as "Gipsy ladys", are one of them.
The Most Popular Gypsy Women Tattoos
Gypsy women tattoos are very popular among old school tattoo lovers because of their characteristics. Their shapes, clothing and accessories make these tattoos easily recognizable at a glance. These tattoos always show us gypsy women wearing different details and ornaments such as rings, pendants, earrings, chokers, scarves or long skirts.
Meanings of Gypsy Women Tattoos
Gypsy totems have a deep symbolism for both men and women, and this is independent of the type you choose. The lifestyle, character, characteristics and history of gypsies give these tattoos their meaning. But like any other body art, what you want to say is up to you and why you decide to get it. However, there are some universal symbolisms that anyone who sees your tattoo can give it.
- The first and probably the most common meaning that connects most people to this type of tattoo is independence and autonomy. Gypsies, have self-imposed mental and physical freedom, and do not limit their lives, so they are always on the move. This term means that totems can symbolize that you are also independent or at least believe or hope to do so in the future. During their travels, they only depend on themselves and the work they do to survive, so your totem can mean that you are also a self-sufficient person.
- If you love to travel, this is the tattoo that best describes you, traveling is what most people think of when they see the tattoo. Gypsies are famous for being fortune tellers and use a crystal ball to predict their future. So your tattoo can also be a symbol of vision and happiness.
- The beauty of women in these tattoos is also a perfect symbol of desire and femininity. If you decorate your totem with other things, such as flowers, butterflies and geometric symbols, this can also be more meaningful. For some people, it is also common to combine them with other tattoos and draw in different styles to change their symbolism.
- Other of the most common meanings that we can find among gypsy women tattoos, are the future, spirituality, living life to the fullest, success, luck, divination, of outsiders or marginal inhabitants, performance and the path of life.
