Step 1.

We need to draw the shape of Jesus' face which looks like a guitar pick. You will need to sketch out the facial guides then move to step two.

Step 2.

Using what you just made, sketch out the skull design for Jesus' face. Notice how the cheek bones are very prominent, and how the hair line is parted.

Step 3.

Here you will sketch out the shapes or sockets of the eyes. Sketch in the detailing around the eyes which should end up looking like wrinkles, and creases for a stressed look. Draw the socket for the nose, and add detailing around that too. Start dra   

Step 4.

Draw the bottom jaw or mandible as well as the all the teeth on the bottom jaw. Sketch in the detailing to the bone gum line, then add the definition for the chin.

Step 5.

Sketch out the realistic hair starting with the outlined shape of his hairstyle which was always worn straight and wavy.

Step 6.

Sketch in all the detailing to his hair which is single wavy lines. Erase the mistakes now because you will need to draw the crown of thorns. Tack your time as you draw the vine like wrap around the brow of Jesus' head. Add some last minute details i   

Step 7.

Here is what your Jesus tattoo looks like when you are done. You can choose to color this drawing in, or leave it as a black and white.

Description: Here is a tattoo design that I really love. I wanted to make something cool that I could relate with from actually seeing a concept in the flesh. One design I admire is the skull head in the form of Jesus. Here is "how to draw a Jesus tattoo", step by step. The skull is so freaking cool. I love the way the head tilts just like the actual Jesus on the cross. I decided to leave his long wavy locks as well as the crown of thorns. The neck is a normal flesh based sketch which was done intentionally. You can choose to go with a skeletal based beck if you like, I just wanted to do something different. I really don't know what else to say except, have fun and be sure to give me some feedback as to whether you enjoyed this lesson or not, or if you would like to see some other design you had in mind. Enjoy folks, and good luck.
