I am so extremely excited to be uploading this tutorial. I saw an ad of some sorts on Facebook with a similar picture to the one you see in the thumbnail. It reminded me of My Chemical Romance's music video 'I Don't Love You', which can be found here. So with inspiration derived from those two references, I created something like this, a glowing angelic girl, and a man in darkness (which is weird because I was listening to Radiohead's Creep as I painted this). I'm calling this tutorial “how to draw a tattoo kiss", step by step because honestly, I would so get this image inked on my body if I was in the market to do so. The story that I came up with is a sad one. I wanted my two faces or kiss look like there is sadness mixed with happiness and pain. The angelic figure is the spirit or ghost of a lost love. The man is supposed to be her husband or lover. I kind of wanted to turn things around and make an image that represented one of my favorite movies “Ghost” which starred the late Patrick Swazye, and Demi Moore. As you can see there is a tear streaming down the man's face as the spirit of his wife kisses him good-bye. I guess the tattoo design is supposed to convey lost love by tragedy. I had so much fun creating my own version of the image that inspired me, so I hope you like drawing a tattoo kiss. I will be back with some more fun for you all so stay tuned in. Adios people and enjoy!
