How to Draw a Snake Tattoo

Step 1.

Draw a small circle for the top of the snakes head, and then draw in a straight vertical line.

Step 2.

You will begin sketching out the snakes defined head like you see here, and then add an eye and wispy line.

Step 3.

Sketch out the serrated edging on top of the snake's brow, and then draw in the tongue, and the rest of the head shape. Add some detailing inside of the eye shape, and then move to step four.

Step 4.

Begin drawing out the neck of the snake, and then add the scales to the jaw, and the side of the face like so.

Step 5.

Now that you have the top of the snake drawn out, you can now draw out the dagger beginning with the handle first and then draw the hand guard, and then the blade. You can choose to draw any type of dagger, or you can even choose to use a sword.

Step 6.

Continue to draw out the snakes body which is slithering around the blade like you see here. Be sure to thin out the tip of the snakes tail before you proceed to step seven.

Step 7.

For the last drawing step, all you have to do is sketch in the scales, and then draw out the definition to the blade to make it look like a well defined blade. Erase the two guides you drew in step one.

Step 8.

Here is the finished drawing like you see here. Now choose your color pallet to add some vivid texture to the sketch. Thanks for joining me for this tutorial on how to draw a snake tattoo.

Description: I just wanted to upload a couple of tattoo lessons that I think will be fun to tackle. To start, lets look at this tutorial on "how to draw a snake tattoo", step by step. There is plenty of tattoo designs that you can learn from but I just wanted to make and upload some more recent, up to date stuff that is eye appealing and fun to draw. The sword or dagger is going to be very simple to tackle and the snake is going to have a different look, but still hold a very cool stature. The colors that you can choose to shade in your design with is virtually endless. I had fun making this snake tattoo because it is neat enough for woman to use, as well as cool enough for men to use. When choosing a tattoo concept for an inking job you should really choose something that mirrors your personality, and the things you love. I guess that's about all I can really say about this lesson, it's time now that you try and draw a snake tattoo of your own. Have fun people, and for those of you that celebrate Easter, have a Happy Easter.
