How to Draw a Zen Tattoo

Artist: Dawn / May 11, 2015

Step 1.

We will start by drawing one spear shaped leaf or petal and then draw in a simple swirl in the center.

Step 2.

Next, draw in two more petals or leaves like so, then draw more swirls on the inside of shapes.

Step 3.

Again, two more shapes for the bloom of the top half for your Zen art.

Step 4.

Finish the bloom by drawing the base of the flower bed and then add detailing as well.

Step 5.

Up next, draw the shape of the head and then draw the swirl at the end of the shape.

Step 6.

Lastly, draw in the symbol inside the round shape you just made, then draw dots that flow nicely around the design. Erase the mistakes you might have made as well.

Step 7.

This is what the finished drawing looks like when done. Now you can color in the art any shade you like.
