Hello folks I am back with another drawing tutorial and yes it is another tattoo design that I think is a very interesting concept. Right now I will show you how to draw a scarab step by step. Now I’m not a wiz on everything but I do read a lot and I know that the scarab is a scared beetle to the Egyptians. In ancient Egypt they believed that the dung beetle or scarab was linked to the God of the sun, Khepri. They also believed that this insect’s sex origin came only in male and that they reproduced by dumping semen into the dung balls that they roll. An interesting fact is that the dung ball is in the shape of a sun, so obviously this belief gains respect. A roman historian by the name of Plutarch quoted on the dung beetle and the Egyptians belief, he said; “The race of beetles has no female, but all the males eject their sperm into a round pellet of material which they roll up by pushing it from the opposite side, just as the sun seems to turn the heavens in the direction opposite to its own course, which is from west to east”. Anyway, the Egyptians are people that have many beliefs and many myths. I think that their culture back in the ancient days was pretty interesting. This is an awesome tattoo design that I took a lot of time with. I will show you how easy it is to draw a scarab design step by step. I hope you like this drawing; I will be back with more tutorials in a bit so keep your eyes open people.
