This is going to be a wicked fun tutorial on a tattoo design that I know almost all of you recognize. Without further ado, I will now be teaching you "how to draw an anchor step by step". I mean think about it, why doesn't anyone have a tutorial on an anchor? The anchor is a very, very popular design that many people have inked on their bodies including men and women. But let's forget about the tattoo anchor for a minute and talk about what an anchor is and actually does. Even though this is a no brainer Q&A type of thing, I still like talking about certain things that interest me. An anchor is of course a tool that is used in ships, and large boats. Sailors use these hunks of iron to keep their vessels in one position for long periods of time. If a ship is going to staying idol for long, long periods, than a mooring will be used instead. A ship is attached to an anchor by the rode which is usually made from chain, cable, line, or even a combination of all three objects in one. Obviously anchors of the early days where probably nothing more than big rocks or small boulders that were twined with rope. There is so many different types of anchors in existence. There is a hook style anchor which is best for bottoms that are dense with rocks, kelp, coral and hard sand. Another type of anchor is a plough. These tools are designed to bury themselves in the ocean surface that is rich with soft mud and or rock. Other anchor designs are the flukes and drogues. I guess you can say that there is an anchor for all different needs. I think you guys will like this tutorial because it shows you a cool way to learn "how to draw an anchor". I've included a slithering serpent as well because sailors are sometimes referred to as snakes. Have fun guys and keep up the good work. Join me next time for more drawing fun!
