Hey everyone, I’m back once again today, and before I do another live session, I will be uploading my first lesson of the day. To start, I thought I would show you an easy way to "draw a simple tribal tattoo", step by step. Now when it came to choosing a design for this tattoo, I had to think what type of lining would look cool if it where drawn in a simplified manner. Then it hit me, a tribal eye. I absolutely love the way that I drew out this tribal pattern because the shapes and lines flow so nicely with each other making the task of replicating it, simple. When I first started to draw tattoos, I honestly didn’t know where to start, or how to get there. I turned to my very artistic cousin for some ideas and support, and he just filled me in on how you have to let your imagination totally take over when drawing tattoo art. As for tribal art, it’s more of a spiritual concept since the Polynesian people brought this unique inking style to the states. Has anyone seen the movie “The Tattooist”? Well, I have, and I have to say that it was not only creepy, but it was also very informative, and entertaining. The guy that played the tattooist looked like that guy from “The Pet Cemetery”, but I know that wasn’t possible because he is like in his late forties or something like that. Anyway, I think you will like this new type of concept art, as well as this tutorial on "how to draw a simple tattoo". No matter the style, you will most likely enjoy drawing this design because it is really easy and fun to replicate. I will be back with some more cool lessons in a bit. For now try on this tutorial for size and let me know what you think. Peace people!
