So I have an awesome tattoo design that I had so much fun drawing. It’s of a girl that is among the undead. This submission is going to show you "how to draw a vampire tattoo", step by step. Why would I make a tattoo design of a vampire? Well, maybe because there are Goth people out there that love this type of art. I think it’s an awesome depiction of a female vampire and I was into getting tattoos, I would definitely get this one inked on my upper back shoulder. This is such a cool design, and I love the way her face came out. I really wanted to make her eyes really intense because that is one of the things that stick out on a vampire’s face. Even though she is a blood sucker, there is also this subtle sweetness to her face. The light colored skin, red hair, red lips and blood dripping from her fangs conveys that she feed on blood for the first time. This assumption comes from the bite marks on her neck that is still oozing blood. The roses that I drew around her neck represent beauty, and death, as well as love and passion. At first glance it looks as though that her neck is slit, but in all actuality when you look up close you can see that it’s just the lining of the shape of her face or jawline. The smoky look that I colored for her eye make-up really intensifies her stare to a point where it’s hard to look away from her captivating face. I really did have fun creating this tattoo piece, and I think you too will enjoy learning from this tutorial that shows you "how to draw a vampire tattoo". If you want to tweak the colors and design go right ahead. Be sure to upload your finished work so I can see how your drawing came out. I have to float out of here for now, but I shall return. I hope you guys tried to stay cool today, because I know a lot of places experienced a hot summer day.

Using the guides you drew in step one, sketch out the actual shape of her face. Next, draw in the parted bangs which will later turn into her long hair. Don't forget to frame the side of her face as well.

STEP 6.

Begin sketching out the pretty flowing hair for your vampire. I drew her hair to have many layers so when sketching the style, be sure to draw the top part of the head, and then draw in the roots lines. Continue to sketch the hair by making wavy layers and then draw some strands like so. Add texture detailing and then move to step seven.

Now you will draw out the vine that is wrapped around the back of her head, and then draw in the rest of the rose pedals too. As you begin drawing out the vine at the bottom of the first rose, twist or draw the vines crossing over one another. Add some detailing to the rose and then move to step nine.
