Here is another awesome tattoo design that I created yesterday and I think it came out pretty dang cool. I love tattoos and I also love designing them as well. I am about to show you "how to draw a tattoo design" that I want to call a “Skullerfly”. The reason why I am giving this tattoo design this name is because it is a combination of a skull and a butterfly. The body is that of a skull and attached to the skull is a pair of butterfly or fairy wings. If you are into fantasy as I am, you could also label this design a “skull fairy“, and maybe that is what I should call it as well. So forget learning “how to draw a butterfly skull“, instead you will learn “how to draw a skull fairy” step by step. Again this design was made for the girls out there that love skulls but would also like to "draw skulls" that are a bit feminine. I’m sure there are other designs out there from other artists that incorporate a skull and wings, but at least I know that this tattoo design solely came from my head and no one else’s. I have to go for right now, but as you know I shall return. I want you to tackle this tutorial on “how to draw a skull fairy step by step. Get creative and include some of your ideas when you do this lesson. Add something from yourself with the colors, or design that you will be learning from. Or if you like you can leave it be. I will be back so have no fear, dragon_queen is here. Peace out peeps!
