Here is an awesome drawing on a tattoo design that reminds of me mother nature and everything earthy. Up next, we will learn "how to draw a Native American tattoo", step by step. This tattoo concept was fairly easy for me to draw without the markings in the center of the body as well as all over the wings. I didn't include the design or patterns I used in the lesson because I wanted folks to be creative and decorate their Native American eagle all on their own. There is many ways you can tweak this tattoo, but that's up to the artist to figure out they want to add or don't add. Either way the lesson should be simple enough for you to tackle. Have fun folks and enjoy!

STEP 1.

Make the two shapes for the head and body like so, then draw the lining for the wings.

STEP 2.

Start on one side. For me it's usually the left. Here is where you will begin drawing the shape of the eagle's head and hook shaped beak. Once that is done you can tackle the task of drawing the wing and tail. The edges of the wing should be very feathery and spiked looking.

Draw in the eye as well as the marking around the eye. Add the nose hole, then proceed to step four.

Add some lining to create the tips on each feather. Once that is done you can draw a circle design that has a swirl effect inside the shape.
