#10: Classic Medusa Head Tattoo

This tattoo is going to be the basis for basically every Medusa tattoo. Style, colors, and overall look will vary, but this is the "bread & butter" of a Medusa tattoo. Or should I say, the "snake & stone" of every Medusa tattoo...

#9: Continuous Line Medusa Tattoo

Just like LA traffic, this Medusa tattoo is a continuous line that snakes everywhere. I mean right? Traffic is cra- to the -zy here in SoCal. And you better be using your mirrors, or it can kill you faster than Medusa! C'mon people, you know. Scared of turning to stone? You need to be stoned to endure 2 hours it takes to go 5 miles during rush hour. Tell me I'm lying... nope. You can't. Traffic be real out here. It ain't no myth like Medusa, this here is real life.

#8: Framed Medusa Tattoo

Your forehead can never look too big if you arrange the snakes correctly, proving that being transformed unjustly into a viscous monster has its perks : ) So whatever problems you may have, remember to turn life's little snakes into snake-aid, and maybe people will get faced tattooed one day like Medusa.

#7: Anime Style Medusa Tattoo

This is an awesome reimagining of a traditional Medusa tattoo. This Medusa tattoo, although highly detailed, is also highly symmetrical. This making looking at the tattoo very aesthetically pleasing, which, if it were the living Medusa, could be quite dangerous.

This fine line geometric Medusa tattoo would look great tattooed on anyone, even a "square". I could keep "circling" around all the reasons this tattoo is so awesome, or you can look below see for yourself.

#5: Blackwork Medusa Tattoo

Medusa tattoos can be done in any color, each giving the individual Medusa tattoo its own vibe. Blackwork tattoos create an eerie vibe, an authentic vibe,  a vibe that strips away all the fun of the myth, and brings out the darkness from within.

#4: Crying Medusa Tattoo

I would almost be brought to tears myself had I lived Medusa's life. Honestly, it's a very tragic story were Medusa has to suffer horrible atrocities for literally no reason, absolutely no fault of her own. Thankfully all of her suffering was not in vain, we now have a fun story for the kids, and cool tattoo idea for the adults.

#3: Stone Statue Medusa Tattoo

It appears that in the end Medusa somehow was able to look herself in the eyes, and she too was doomed to a fate of stone. It's a cool tattoo idea, and also a great brainteaser. How could she have possibly looked at herself in the eyes? A mirror? Sorry, that doesn't work to turn you to stone. Or maybe... nope. I am all out of ideas on how to look yourself in the eyes.

#2: Traditional Style Medusa Tattoo

The traditional style Medusa tattoo is refreshing take on the classic Medusa we imagine in our minds. This Medusa tattoo still invokes all the classic feelings of viewing Medusa, but in a whole new light. This really opens your mind to all the different ways Medusa can look.

#1: Realistic Medusa Tattoo

Luckily this Medusa tattoo is a side profile, because it looks so realistic that you might turn to stone if you looked at it head on. Everything from snarling snakes to lines on her face, let you know that this Medusa means business.
