Drawing an 8 Ball Tattoo Style

Artist: Dawn / November 7, 2015

Step 1.

Start with a ball or circle shape but leave the bottom empty.

Step 2.

In the front of the ball you will draw in the number 8 followed by a circle around the 8.

Step 3.

Now, draw in the flames that engulf the 8 ball. As you can see the bottom of the flames is shaped like a skull face.

Step 4.

Draw in flaming eyes and nose and then color in the eyes and nose. Erase your mistakes and than you are all done.

Step 5.

Here is the line art now that you are all done. Color in your 8 ball tattoo or bring the line art to your favorite tattooist.

Description: Some folks may miss the actual skull design that is associated with this drawing. When creating tattoo concept art you always have to add some cool effect so that it stands out against any other concept or ordinary art. That is why I went ahead and made this lesson on drawing an 8 Ball tattoo style. The 8 ball is a popular object that is used in traditional art as well as tattoo style art. I do have a lesson on an 8 ball already that I did such a long time ago, but that one isn't really colorful or cool. If you have been waiting for a lesson that shows you how to draw a cool 8 ball than look no further because this 8 ball comes with a flaming skull.
