Step 1.

Start the first step on how to draw tribal eagle art, by drawing the guidelines and shapes of the eagle. Almost all the lines are going to have sharp notches and points. Draw two circles for the head and body of the eagle. You will then attach the le   

Step 2.

Next start sketching out the tribal lines for the eagle legs, head, beak, and chest. All these tribal lines look similar to flames. Before you go you must start sketching the tips of the tribal eagles right wing.

Step 3.

You will now start to sketch out more of the detailing tribal design lines on the face, back neck, torso, and front legs and claws.

Step 4.

Here you will start drawing the right wing design and shape like you see here. Once the sharp pointed feathers are drawn you can then draw the tribal lines for the bone as you see here.

Step 5.

Next, sketch out the wing in more detail by adding sharp razor like lines and then sketch out the tail of the tribal eagle. Add some tribal detailing to the chest and then move to the next step.

Step 6.

You will start this step by sketching out the left wing and remember to use razor sharp edges. Add more fullness to the tail and then more detailing to the front legs, chest.

Step 7.

This is your last drawing step and all you have to do is draw the remaining detailing tribal design lines on your tribal eagle wings, back, and tail. Once that is done erase any guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one that are visible.

Step 8.

This is what your line art should look like when you are done. It is now time to get really creative and start coloring in your tribal eagle if you want. That will end this tutorial on how to draw a tribal eagle tattoo design step by step.
