How to Draw a Tiger Tattoo Design, Tiger Tattoo Design

Artist: Dawn / September 11, 2011

Step 1.

Make a circle for the head of the tiger, and then add one facial guide like so. Now you can move to step two.

Step 2.

Now you can begin sketching out the side view of the lions face. This line has lots of edges and some points.

Step 3.

Sketch out the lining of the snout and bottom jaw. Sketch out the shape of the mouth, color inside of the mouth, and add some detailing and teeth.

Step 4.

Here is where you might want to grab a ruler to sketch out a light line that you can use as a guide so the tiger's eyes are sketched in evenly. Once you get the line in, draw out the eyes, eyeball, and then color in the darkened area that you see bef   

Step 5.

Cap off the tiger's head with a shaggy hair line. You will only be drawing a tiger head. Draw in the ears, and make sure that the back lining is hair.

Step 6.

Before you start drawing in the stripes, erase the guides and mistakes to clean up the tiger. Once cleaned up you can begin drawing the stripes on the head, face, and cheeks like so.

Step 7.

Now you can finish off the tiger by drawing out the tribal tattoo design you see here. Draw a slightly arched tribal pattern like so, and even add a dot and swirl.

Step 8.

Here is what your drawing looks like when you are all done. Now you can color in your tiger if you like or, leave it as an inked drawing. Thanks and I hope you enjoyed this lesson on drawing a tiger tattoo design.

Description: Hey guys, welcome to another drawing lesson I've prepared last night. Here, we will be tuning in on “how to draw a tiger tattoo design”, step by step. I had so much fun creating this lesson, especially after listening to the song “Uninvited by Freemasons” (it's a remix). You should listen to it yourself. It's mixed with a techno rhythm and primitive Indian type effects. Anyways, it's best to draw with inspirtion on the side, like listening to some good tunes as you draw, as well as inspiration from other artists. There's just so many things you could do to improve your production. Make sure you prepare yourself for this lesson with a pencil, paper, and eraser so we can get started! I hope you've all enjoyed this lesson, so don't forget to let me know how you did and how the tutorial was. Thanks for viewing and have fun!
