There is a huge variety of designs in the tattoos segment and people like to wear what they want to sport. Some are very much in love and fascination with the mythological creatures and therefore, look for tattoos that have similar images. The gnome tattoo also derives inspiration from mythology. Gnomes are believed to be dwarfish creatures that dwell beneath the earth and guard its underground mineral resources. There are many stories about them related to their benevolence and magical powers. Though it is said that they are kind-natured, it is also a strongly held belief that they do not spare those who plunder the natural resources and punish them using their might.
The gnome tattoo is based on these very myths but also carved with some modern motifs and images. The gnomes are mostly featured as a short old man with long beard and a pointed red hat. They have a cute and funny appearance resembling to that of Santa Claus. These gnomes can be seen carrying a lantern or backpack or riding a turtle. Whatever the pose, they always look sweet and illicit warmth and mirth. In this post we have compiled a gallery of 20 gnome tattoos in colorful and animated designs. Take a look and get some positive doses of fun.
