Have any of you ever seen a tattoo design based on a dove? Well I haven't, but someone asked me to make a tutorial on "how to draw a dove tattoo", step by step so I went ahead and made this one. The dove is supposed to be a simple concept so that anyone can tackle the task of making a dove in the most primitive and common form. The leaf that the dove has grasped in the beak is actually an olive branch. This is a typical formation of a dove and it supposed to symbolize peace, and forgiveness. The phrase "Hold out an olive branch" literally means forgiveness and or reconciliation. I guess I could see why someone would want to get a dove tattoo on their body especially if you wanted a new beginning. Anyways, I had loads of fun making this bird because I haven't done a dove in this pose or form before. So I hope that you enjoy drawing a dove tattoo because the dove alone is a symbol of purity, which means this should be a subtle, loving lesson to follow. I will be back tomorrow with more drawing lessons for you all. So after you leave today, be sure to come back tomorrow. Peace people!
