How to Draw a Pretty Horse Tattoo

Step 1.

Start this first step by drawing a few circles for the head nose and neck. Add the guidelines for the face and then the ear shapes. You will then draw the shaping of the neck and mane as well as the wing shapes.

Step 2.

Now I know you don't think this is a hard tutorial right? Good, now what you will do is start sketching out the horses mane as well as the shape of the nose and jaw. You will then add the lines for the eye and then the lining for the front of the neck. Sketch in the shape of the butterfly like wings and then move to step three.

Step 3.

When you are done with this step you will notice that your tattoo horse will start to take a more solid form. Add the shapes of the ears and then detail the inside of them. You will also add detailing to the side of the neck as well as the design on the pretty wings too. Sketch in more detailing with the mane at the tips and then proceed on.

Step 4.

Wow, she is already starting to look beautiful huh. You will sketch in the definition detailing on the horses mane and then add lashes. Draw out the shapes of the flowers and then add more wing design like you see here.

Step 5.

This is your final step and what you will do is first add the finishing touches to the mane and then to the flowers. Don't forget to detail the flower in the mouth as well. You can go ahead and start erasing the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 6.

Here is what your finished sketch should look like when you are done. ALl you need to do now is color her in and you are done. I hope you liked this tutorial lesson how to draw a horse tattoo step by step. I will be back in a while with some more great drawing fun. So don't let that pencil stray to far from your hand.

Okay how about one more girly tattoo before I call it a night? I love horses and since I love horses I wanted to do a drawing on another cool design that I think a lot of chic’s will like. As a matter of fact I know you girls will like it because I love it. So right now I will be showing you how to draw a horse tattoo step by step. The colors are wicked pretty and the design is ultra sweet. I wanted the horse to be bright and bold as well as display a side of innocence and beauty. I added a pair of butterfly wings because horses are known to be sacred animals to the Native Americans in many ways. The flowers represent laughter and happiness. I got the design idea from my aunt Michelle. She has a beautiful horse tattoo with the landscape of an island paradise gunned on the entire flesh of her back. It is so gorgeous. The horses head is prominent and the island surrounds the head in a set back point of view. I will ask her if I can take a picture of her back one day so I can post it in the user artwork section on the site. Trust me when you see it you will be “oh shiz-nick”. Anyway this lesson will show you how to draw a horse tattoo step by step. Like always the instructions are easy to read and the steps are simple to follow. You will be drawing tattoo art in no time at all with this bright and colorful tutorial that I have submitted for you all. I will be back in a while or maybe tomorrow with more cool stuff. I have a special treat coming your way with two of my tutorials tomorrow so make sure you come back, you won’t want to miss what's coming.
