Description: Well the numbers keep going and going it seems with each passing day brings more drawings lessons for your enjoyment. For my first tutorial of the day I thought I would do another tattoo on an object that I have not yet submitted. I will show you how to draw a dagger step by step. Now with this dagger I wanted to combine some things that I think is pretty cool. First I wanted to add a skull somewhere on the handle. So because of that, I put it at the top of the handle with the mouth opening on the ball part. The next thing I wanted to do is incorporate some cool looking flames either on the dagger or somewhere in the background. Because I wanted both, I drew some flames wrapping around the dagger’s blade and then I used tools from Photoshop to draw out and add flames in the background. All the flames, the skull, and dagger where very simple to draw which means you should have no problem drawing this dagger tattoo design as well. I figured that daggers are a very common tattoo that men usually get on their shoulders, back, arms and sometimes on their calves. Once you learn how to draw this dagger you should be able to draw any other dagger you want to draw. This tutorial will show you how easy it is to draw a dagger tattoo step by step. I will be back in a while with more drawing fun so stay tuned and keep your eyes open.
