Phantom Troupe Tattoo Ideas
Metallic Phantom Troupe Spider
This spider deviates from the spider tattoo in the Hunter x Hunter with more embellishment and details. The spider has 12 legs but no number on its body. The metallic design on its body and hints of gold on its legs make it stand out.
Zero Phantom Troupe Tattoo
This tattoo is closer to the Phantom Troupe’s tattoos but is still personalized with hints of spiderweb between its legs. The placement on the elbow give the tattoo more dimension as it’s able to bend and move.
Shalnark Linework Tattoo
This tattoo is based on the character Shalnark, one of the antagonists from Hunter x Hunter. The portrait is created using no shading and very economic line work.
Geometric Portrait Phantom Troupe
This tattoo is of Chrollo Lucifer, found of Phantom Troupe and member 0. Placing the tattoo on the upper arm in a triangle facing downward uses the natural shape of the body to frame the design.
Phantom Troupe Eye Tattoo
Selectively using color, tattoo is dynamic yet simple. Stacking the eyes on top of each other fits will on the forearm.
Black and White Hisoka Morow Tattoo
Referencing Hunter x Hunter’s Manga origins, this tattoo of Hisoka Morow is a classic, playful way to honor the show.
Brightly Colored Hisoka Tattoo
This colorful rendering of Hisoka Morrow represents the character’s personality. Hisoka is a magical serial killer and former member number 4 of Phantom Troupe. The bright colors and playful design draw you into the tattoo.
Fragmented Portrait Tattoo
Another way to represent the characters without getting a full portrait, is by using geometric shapes to fragment images. The simplicity of this design gives it a clean, attractive appeal.
Tarot Card Hisoka Tattoo
The tattoo artist cleverly used a tarot card motif to represent the character’s identifying qualities.
Watercolor Feitan Portor Tattoo
This watercolor depiction of Feitan, temporary leader and number 2 member of Phantom Troupe, is a colorful, eye catching remembrance of Hunter x Hunter.
Shalnark Chains Tattoo
What sets this tattoo apart is the quality of the colors. The artist used the tattoo owner’s skin to shade the character, giving it a lifelike quality, then was able to make all of the colors opaque. It almost looks like a pastel drawing.
Kalluto Eyes Tattoo
This tattoo depicts the eyes of a villain from Hunter x Hunter. By coloring just the eyes a soft magenta, the tattoo is subtly eye catching.
This tattoo is just adorable, the design comes across as a refined doodle and the disheveled character is a playful twist on the typically serious Phantom Troupe members.
The Whole Troupe
This forearm tattoo shows the entire Phantom Troupe walking together like a motley crew. It’s horizontal orientation and movement fit perfectly on the forearm.
Electric Hisoka Tattoo
Playing with Hisoka’s status as a magician, this tattoo features a lot of visually appealing imagery like cards and lightning. Anime style and bright colors give this tattoo life.
Cute Phantom Troupe Tattoo
Here we have a simple and understated design, strategically using blue and amber to accent the portrait. The character’s smirk is fun touch.
Stylized Hisoka Tattoo
This Hisoka tattoo has been designed with unexpected accents and details. The arms are curvy and the hands have fine lines and veins running through them, showing the artist took some liberties interpreting the character.
Simple Phantom Troupe Eyes Tattoo
Most of the tattoos we’ve seen are placed on the arms or thighs, this one leans into the feeling of Hunter x Hunter giving the wear something akin to “eyes in the back of their head.”
Delicately Shaded Character Tattoo
Most depictions of Hisoka are brightly colored and wild, this one took a subtler approach and it paid off. The shading and minimal use of color is crisp.
Graphic Anime Tattoo
A classic homage to Phantom Troupes Manga roots. Bold and high contrast, using stippling to put the character in shadow to represent the Phantom Troupe’s roll as villains.
