People Are Getting Realistic Gemstone Tattoos That Look Like Gorgeous Jewelry

I've already mentioned to you before, at least once or twice, how much I love tattoos — all styles and techniques. They're a great way to accessorize your body, and they don't always need to look harsh.

There is one particular style of tattoo that can come off as really delicate and quite beautiful. I'm talking about pieces that resemble jewelry.

Having a lower back tattoo has a bad rap.

I don't exactly know how it all started. But as you can see here you shouldn't judge someone too fast. This back piece is so elaborate and beautiful. Wow!

This leg piece is so pretty to look at, isn't it?

I honestly never would have thought of getting a tattoo that looks like jewelry before. I'm not sure why. It's actually a really cool idea now that I see it.

How about this upper shoulder work of art?

It really does look like gemstones. Am I right? This is a design that appeals to me a lot. Everything about this piece is speaking to me. I'm totally in love with it.

I've always wanted to get a tattoo around my foot.

There's something so sweet and feminine about it. This idea is blowing me away. I love how it wraps around the ankle and creates a bit of a flow. Stunning.

If you're looking for simplicity, this beautiful tattoo might be right for you.

I dig how minimalist it is while still showing off a lot of skill. It just goes to show you that you don't always have to go bold.

What an unusual take on the whole jewelry tattoo idea.

This one is like a keepsake locket. The picture inside of it is done so well. I gotta admit, I'm really liking this one as well.

Again, here's another understated design that's still quite striking.

It definitely delivers in terms of quality work. I never would have thought of getting a cross adorned with jewelry. This one might be too pretty to say no to.

If you are looking for something a little bolder this is a great example for you.

It's a beautifully crafted design that literally makes the gemstone look shiny. Doesn't that look incredibly realistic, too? This is a really gorgeous piece.

Oh my goodness, just look at this fabulous dream catcher.

I absolutely adore all the pretty colors they used here. This is such a stunning and feminine piece. It's as if I can see it floating in the air.

Here's another absolutely mesmerizing foot piece.

I love how it frames the foot so beautifully. I bet it would look so great while wearing flip-flops. If I had this design, I would want to show it off at all times.

Wow, how gorgeous is this high thigh piece?

I gotta say I'm pretty impressed with the work that went into this. It's so pretty and delicate, too. It fits quite well on this part of the body. I love it.

Here's another popular type of tattoo.

The armband — but contrary to popular belief, it doesn't always have to be barbed wire. Ha, ha! In fact, that design is so '90s if you get what I mean. It's one tattoo you should actually avoid, but I love this take on it.

These would be perfect to get with friends for a matching tattoo design.

Everyone could choose the same gemstone shape but pick a stone color that's important to them, like their birthstone. Time to book a tattoo appointment with your BFFs.

How unique is this snake holding an opal?

Wow, I can't say I've ever seen a design like this before. I love how the opal picks up the light and looks so pretty and shiny. This is a really gorgeous idea.

This back piece is speaking to me.

I'm not sure what this design means but it must be inspired by something ancient. Ha, ha! Don't you get that vibe from it too? I feel like it could've been used in an Anne Rice novel.

If you're a fan of butterfly tattoos you may want to pay close attention to this one.

It's definitely a unique take on a typical butterfly tattoo idea. I wonder if the artist came up with the design or if it was the client's idea.

Not all gem tattoos have to be really big and elaborate.

You can always do something pretty and simplistic like this. I think this is such a great and feminine idea. This trend is definitely starting to grow on me more.

Isn't this jewelry arm tattoo something else? Wow.

It's so masterfully done. Whoever did this piece put a lot of hard work and heart into making it. I bet the recipient of this artful piece feels very lucky right now.

How do you make a tattoo gem sparkle?

Well, if you're this talented artist this is how you do it. How cool is it to get a glimpse of how this type of awesome tattoo style is done, huh?

I must say that this arm tattoo is absolutely gorgeous. There is so much detail here I can't get over it. This one probably took a while but was worth the wait.

I dunno but I might have saved the best for last here.

This elephant adorned with jewelry is giving me some serious tattoo envy here. This elaborate piece must've taken some time to complete but it was definitely worth it.

Wow, how did I not get into this type of tattoo idea before?

I don't quite know. Ha, ha! Now that I've seen so many beautiful examples here I'm beginning to want one even more. Are you as into it as me?
