I have some pretty cool tattoo art that I will be uploading today as well as some video game characters and other pop culture stuff. I will start with another lesson on "how to draw a dragonfly tattoo", step by step. My other dragonflies are older, and aren't well drawn as the one you see here. The cool thing about the coloring to this dragonfly is the wings; they look like stained glass like a Tiffany lamp or window. If you love dragonflies or insect tattoos you will enjoy drawing this dragonfly tattoo. Adios and have fun.
