Drawing body art for tattoos is something that I have grown to love. I have made so many different types of tattoo designs in the past and because of this making tattoo art is almost like second nature to me. Today I will show you "how to draw body art" in the form of a mummy heart. One of my favorite parts to this design is how the bandages wrap around the heart, and how they look aged as if the heart where in a tomb for hundreds of years. The coloring and shading that I did came out epically awesome. I know now that when coloring, it's best to stay true to your love of art because there is no other way to make creative drawing then to draw from what you love. This is probably one of my favorite heart designs that I have drawn in a while. I hope you guys like drawing this mummy heart that I want to call body art. If I was to get a tattoo of an old, aged heart, I would choose this one for sure. Thanks for joining me with another fantastic drawing of a new tattoo heart concept. i will be back later with my last lesson. Peace out and have fun!
