How to Draw a Skull Tattoo Design, Skull Tattoo Design

Step 1.


Start by making a large circle for the skull head shape and then draw one short guide from the bottom of the head shape.

Step 2.


You will now begin sketching out the thick, very prominent brows that should be drawn the exact way you see it here. One of the parts of the face that will pop out is the eyes. Draw in the eyeballs, and then sketch some marks under, and above the eye   

Step 3.


Trace the lining you drew in step one to thicken the shape of the skull's head and when you reach the top, draw in a slight mound or bump. Add some dark splatter shading on the left side of the skull, and sketch in a light crooked line for an added c   

Step 4.


Now it's time to draw out the high cheek bones and as you can see they should be pointed and arched. Draw in the mouth including the extremely sharp fanged teeth and then draw in the even row of top teeth. Add detailing and definition where needed.

Step 5.


For the last drawing step all you have to do is draw out the arrow shaped nose, and see how the tip remains sharp. Color in the holes and add some mild speckling and then erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 6.


Here is the drawing when you are all done. Now you can choose to color it in, or leave it as a black and white drawing. I think you will agree that this was one cool drawing.

Description: Here is an awesome drawing that I did yesterday on a pretty cool skull tattoo. I have really wanted to make a skull version of the new drawing style I have been doing lately. I just needed someone to ask me to make such a tutorial. It’s not going to be that hard to replicate because the design is pretty simple. The only complex part of drawing a skull tattoo is the coloring aspect of it. If you want to make your skull tattoo in a colored state like the one you see here, all you have to do is use some paint, or even a coloring program that you know how to use. Anyways, I can’t really say anything more about yet another skull tutorial because I must have drawn more than eighty skulls for the site and each one has its own unique description. I think you will enjoy drawing a skull design because I know there are so many of you that love tattoo art. Adios mi amigos and enjoy your drawing day!
