Pikeys are just basically gypsies from london, their are many big pikey families such as the Johnsons, many take part in bare knuckle boxing. Items such as a watch may be referred to by a pikey as a kettle, reasons for this i am told to believe is because of pikeys excellent 'negotiation' skills, in other words, just ripping people off.
Gypsies in the movie Snatch are referred to as Pikeys, where as in Ireland, they would be referred to as Tinkers.

(not to be confused with 'wannabe pikeys' or 'clinger-on pikeys' who in live perfectly nice areas but just want to be cool).Pikeys are People who either live in council houses, or in areas where the houses now look like council houses because by them living there it now seems like they are(no offense if u liv in a council house, i know some perfectly nice peopl who liv in them). they also usually wear those parka coats with fur all round the hood to school because they think it makes them look hard. Out of school all pikeys wear lots of addidas,nike,schott,clothing etc. Most pikeys also smoke (in and out of school),also in school they also just randomly walk into people and say "u startin" and in some cases proceed to punch the person, but due to the state of the british school system nothing is done about this. another sign that someone is a pikey is if they just ramdomly spit at cars(because they relize they'll never own one), people(because they're subhuman and dont like things different to them and who have an IQ over 90)and they often spit on the ground for no reason. Pikeys also always jell their hair aand sometimes bleach it blonde. NOTE:u must be all or at least 60% of these things to be a pikey
If you're a pikey you wont want to admit it, but in the back of youre mind you know

Pikeys is a word used for the rough, illegal types of gypsies. I believe that most gypsies are mis-understood - becoming the victims of cruel insults suggesting they are violent crooks. Infact, most modern day gypsies are simply honest, hard working travellers that would rather excape the rat-race and live more simply. I am very close to gypsy and have realised his way of life is based on simply enjoying a free spirited life in an honest way. Gypsies are highly mis-understood and i think people should take on a more open minding outlook on travellers and seek to learn about them before obtaining an opinion.
