Okay everyone, today is a real exciting day because I have so many awesome lessons to share with you and so far I uploaded five of them. Next, I will take you on a journey to both life and death with this lesson on "how to draw a sparrows tattoo", step by step. Sparrows are among the popular list as being one of the more popular bird species to get inked on your skin. To make things interesting I wanted to do something different. Here is my take on both life and death in love. The heart in the center of the two birds is supposed to represent the love shared between the two sparrows. The sparrow that is all bones is death, and the white feathery sparrow is life. If you notice the white bird has a hollowed out eye and this is because it is in love with death and vise verse with the dead sparrow. So I hope you all have fun. I will be back with more lessons so be sure to stick around.
