Description: I have another cool tattoo art design for you all that will be really easy to draw and or learn from. A while ago I submitted a lesson that was on a tattoo bulldog that was ripping through tissue of some sorts. I thought it would be cool to do another tutorial on a tattoo design that is pretty similar to the bulldog. I am going to show you “how to draw a lion tattoo step by step”. The lion is one of the more popular animals to get inked on the skin. The same goes for the black panther, tigers, dogs, and even horses and fantasy creatures like dragons. Tattoos have become more and more popular with people around the world, and some of these individuals are getting their bodies inked before they reach eighteen years old. I know here in the state that I live in, you need to be eighteen years old before you can get a tattoo unless you have parental consent. I mean there are plenty of cool parents out there that are very liberal with their kids, but then again there are also very stern parents that forbid such things as tattoos, piercing, inappropriate cloths, slang, or anything that falls under the unholy or rebellious category. I think of myself as a rebel, and my parents are very liberal. I have fun drawing the art I draw and there is no one to put a cap on my inspiration. There is many forms of art no matter what you like to paint, draw, sketch, charcoal, shade, and so on and so forth. Drawing nude bodies and other persons, places and things, is what being an artist is all about. There is no boundaries when you are an artist, that is why we are sometimes referred to as bums, degenerates, and people even label us as starving artists, and lost souls. Art is something that flows through the soul and out your hands. Even writers are considered artists and if your married to one, they are usually referred to as unemployed lazy bums. Anyways, I think you guys will like this tutorial on “how to draw a lion tattoo step by step”. Have fun with this lesson, be creative, and remember there is no boundaries when it comes to doing what you love. Peace peeps and happy drawing!
