Here is a very pretty tattoo that I enjoyed drawing a lot. If you where to turn this ladybug updaise down it would actually form a heart, but that's besides the point. The main reason why I made this design is because someone asked if I could make a tutorial on "how to draw a ladybug tattoo". Of course at first I was like "a ladybug tattoo", but then after thinking about it, it seemed like a good idea. Like I said many times before, you can make tattoo designs on just about anything you can think of. If someone walks into a tattoo parlor and says "I want a tattoo of a cockroach getting sprayed with RAID", the tattooist or tattoo artist would either think up an idea, or copy the idea from a concept drawing that the individual may have brought in. Of course I don't think there are too many people out there that want roaches for tattoos, I was just explaining how you can get anything you can think of as body art. After all, you're paying for it right? Anyways, this concept came out super cool and incredibly vivid for a dark image. The green hues of the leaves mixed with the red and black of the ladybug is super intense in color. I think you will have fun drawing a ladybug tattoo especially if you love these insects. Stay tuned in for more drawing fun coming your way. Peace people and like always, enjoy!

Here is where you will start the drawing process to making the bed of leaves that the ladybug is resting on. Start with the larger leaves first, then draw the smaller ones between the larger leaves you drew. It should almost form a star shape of some sorts.
