To begin, you will need to draw a heart that is good size, and is slightly tilted a bit like you see here.


Next, start drawing the wire part of the barbed wire that is wrapped only once around the shape of the heart. Once you have the lining done, you can draw in the barbed knots like you see here. There is one at the top, middle and end.


You will draw the other side of the wire making it twist and wrap around the first line you drew. Add some detailing to the barbed knots as well before leaving this step.


Next and lastly, make some leaves that are sticking to the edges of the barb wire, and then sketch in some of the leaf detailing. You can start cleaning up the drawing once you are done to prepare this sketch for color.


Here you have what I like to call an injured heart that is wrapped in barbed wire. Color in your drawing, then show someone what you have drawn from scratch .

Description: This is one of my favorite heart drawings that I have done along with the tattoo love heart I drew a few days ago. In this lesson I will be showing you "how to draw a barbed heart tattoo", step by step. Have you ever felt that you where caught in a relationship with someone that wasn't right for you but you couldn't leave because you where already in love with the individual. When you fall in love there are so many things that you have to deal with. Sometimes the person you love makes your heart feel like its wrapped in barbed wire instead of loving arms. Fighting, crying, yelling, disagreeing is all part of what makes love hurt. Especially when you feel that the other person doesn't love you as much as you love them. Scars are formed, but often heal over time, but sometimes there are still pieces of sharp barb wire that can't find it's way out. When that happens you either have to deal with it, or leave the situation no matter how hard it is. Even then there is no guarantee that the pain will go away. That is why the saying stays the same when someone says "only time will tell". I had fun making this heart design. If you have been in love, or are in love now I'm sure you will enjoy drawing a barbed heart tattoo.
