There is many different types of tattoo designs that are patterned in a tribal format. Today I am going to submit another tutorial that will teach you "how to draw a tribal yin yang", step by step. The yin-yang is an interesting symbol that is originated from China. The ancient Chinese use the yin-yang as a way to understand how things in the world work. Did you know there are actually three parts to the yin-yang? It's true, even though some of us believe that this ancient symbol only has two parts, the fact is, this object is made up of three sections. The outer circle, and the two shapes which are black, and white. The circle on the outside represents everything in existence. The shapes within the circle are of the two energies we know as yin, and yang. Which color is what? The black wispy swirl is the yin, and the white shape is the yang. I wanted to design a concept drawing of this symbol that almost everyone is familiar with instead of the same old uniform pattern. The two opposites are eagle heads, or if you like you can draw them to be dragons. The dragon is another creature that has been a part of Chinese culture for centuries. At first glance the tribal pattern may look a bit confusing. But as you will see, drawing this design is going to be quite simple. That does it for this tutorial. I have to say that I did enjoy sketching out this design, as I know you will enjoy replicating it. Adios and have a happy evening.
