Rat Tattoo Drawing Tutorial

Artist: Dawn / March 24, 2016

Step 1.

Start the first step by drawing the first part of the rat's face which is the snout, forehead, ear and some of the cheek. Add detailing to the nose and around the mouth.

Step 2.

Up next, draw in the bottom portion of the mouth and then draw in the razor sharp rat teeth in the front of the mouth and some smaller teeth inside the mouth. Don't forget to add the whiskers and then draw the bulging eye.

Step 3.

Begin sketching out the rat's nasty body starting with the shoulder and front arm. The shoulder should have some hair on it sticking up a bit. When that is done add detailing to the ear, and then add some rips, tears or holes.

Step 4.

Wow, you are already almost done drawing a rat tattoo. Here you will draw the long, rat tail. Add those grooves in the tail. As you know rats tails have no hair on them so keep that in mind that they are nasty looking and pink.

Step 5.

Finally, draw the rest of the body which consists of the front arms and paws. Add the belly line, some of the left thigh and then definition to the body. Erase the mistakes and guides too.

Step 6.

That's it, you are all done. Now you can go ahead and color in your rat any way you like.

Description: I know Easter is just two days away and I probably shouldn't be uploading a lesson like this because of the type of animal it is, but I just had to. Today I will be showing you folks who want to learn how to draw a rat tattoo, step by step. Now I know for sure that I have never done a lesson on a rat tattoo. I mean, who would honestly want a tattoo of a rat on their arm, leg, back or shoulder? Maybe folks who are fans of rats do, but I know I cannot stand rodents of any kind so to me this is not something I would have inked on my hide. Anyways, having said that I do hope you enjoy the lesson regardless. You don't have to draw this rat for a tattoo, you can just have fun drawing a rat. I have some exciting lessons coming up next that I think a lot of you will enjoy so try not to stray too far away.
