I haven't drawn any cool tattoo designs lately so I thought I would go ahead and create something that was both beautiful, and intriguing. Here is what I like to call "how to draw tattoo love", step by step. The rose for the center of the heart is what I call beautiful in itself. There is no better way to express how much you love someone than with a rose. The vine like stem that is forms the shape of the heart signifies how love can grow like a vine and only stop when it's cut off; just like how an individual gets cut off by their lover, boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, etc. Out of all the heart designs that I have drawn thus far, this is probably one of my favorites. I love the colors, the way there is blood dripping from the red petals, and how the stem and or vine is created. This is without a doubt a very cool tattoo design. Tattoo hearts and roses are one of the more popular types of body art. Now that both of them are incorporated together, you can have the best of both worlds because now all you need is one tattoo that signifies both love, and passion. I do hope that you will enjoy drawing tattoo love as much as I did creating it. I will be back with some more drawing fun so stay tuned in because today is going to be an exciting day!

How to Draw Tattoo Love

STEP 1.

Let's start off by making a round shape for the center of the heart which will also be the guide to create your rose. from the left side, draw one single line in the form of a heart but don't connect the other end to the shape in the center.

STEP 2.

Starting from the center of the shape, you will begin drawing the bud that is still not open. Once that is complete you can sketch out the first rose petal.

Every petal that you draw should have sharp points and straight edges. This will give the rose for your tattoo love a sense of a piercing love.

You will sketch out the rest of the rose petals like so, and when you do this make sure that the bottom of the bloom is rounded just a bit.

STEP 6.

Instead of petals you will draw about six or seven bedding leaves under the rose. Once the leaves are drawn in, you will need to add detailing to the centers of each leaf, then start the drawing process for the stem. The top of the stem should be thickest. Shape out the stem you are drawing so that it forms a rounded arch for the heart. Add a leaf like so, then of course sketch in some definition on the leaf.

STEP 7.

Now all you have to do is something pretty simple, draw the entire stem to form the shape of a heart like so. The best way to do this is to start with the outside lining, then follow up with drawing the inside as you use the first line as your shaping guide.

Lastly, draw in the leaves on the stem. When you begin sketching out each leaf, make sure that you do it in a way to have some of them curling out from the stem. They shouldn't be uniform ins size so make each one different. When you are finished, sketch in the last of the detailing, then begin erasing your mistakes as well as guidelines.
