To start this tattoo design on a tribal butterfly you will draw a vertical line and then draw the arched shapes of the butterfly's wings. Make sure you add the lips on the wings as well.


Draw out the rest of the butterfly's wings and then the shape of the abdomen that looks like a cone. Draw the roundness of the head and then draw tribal razor lined shapes for the butterfly antennas.


You will start drawing in the tribal lines on the top of the wings and then move to the next step.


Start the tribal designing process on the lower parts of the butterfly's wings and then add the slit lines on the abdomen of the tribal butterfly. Draw some simple circles around the wings and then move to the next step.


This is your last drawing step and all you have to do is draw the rest of the tribal design lines on the lower half of the butterfly's wings and then start erasing all the guidelines and shapes you drew in step one.
