How to Draw a Valentine Tattoo

Step 1.

Make the heart any size you like. When you determine the size of the heart, you can then draw the two shapes at the base for the roses. Add a guideline, then move to step one.

Step 2.

Here you will sketch out the inside of the rose which is the petals that are squeezed together.

Step 3.

Here you will continue to sketch out the rose. Make a heart shape with a long tail.

Step 4.

Sketch out more of the roses petals. When you draw them this time, make sure to sketch the petals dropping. Add detailing along the edges which are small tears.

Step 5.

You will finish the rose this time by drawing the rest of the petals. Since the rose is in full bloom, it should look full and fresh.

Step 6.

Start the drawing process for the second rose. See the inside of the rose? Make sure it looks like a button.

Step 7.

The third rose should be tackled first before drawing the shape of the second rose which is in the blooming process. When that is done proceed to step eight.

Step 8.

Sketch out the bed of rose leaves like so, then sketch in all the small vein like lines to each leaf.

Step 9.

Draw the shape of the heart, then draw another heart inside of the large one like so. Erase the mistakes then you're done.

Step 10.

Here is your Valentine tattoo when you're done. Color it in to your liking, then give it to someone you love.
