How To Draw Simple Tattoo Ideas

Updated on September 6, 2011

Draw Quick Tattoo Ideas

When it comes to drawing down tattoo art ideas there are quicker ways to show you and that I believe is through video with simple and very quick sketches to help you come up with some ideas for your own tattoo ideas. To start off drawing simple stuff is a great idea as we look into below with how to draw a super simple shooting star tattoo idea.

Shooting stars can be as detailed or as simple as you like and in the following drawing video I've opted for a really simplistic approach and almost cartoon like angle for the tattoo concept. A classic star shape with some basic lines to show the movement is all you need to draw and you could draw the trailing lines as an arc or an even longer shooting star trail.

Remember to watch all three videos. The first one is the quick pencil sketch and the second is the inking and then the last one is the coloring stage.

Drawing A Flaming Eyeball Video Tutorial

A flaming eyeball has always been a favorite of mine to draw and in fact anything that you can carry off as a flaming anything design the better as they are super easy to color with felt tips and in this case I used Crayola Supertips which are excellent for quick color sketching new tattoo ideas.

Once again I've created three videos which show you the steps that you could take to draw this most simple of tattoo designs with a sketch, an inked drawing and then the color stage and this by no means is the definitive way to draw a flaming eyeball, just practice and then draw an eyeball in your own way.

How To Draw A Spider Tattoo Idea

There are many different ways you can draw a Spider and it's the variations that you can have fun with when sketching them and Spiders make excellent tattoo designs if you have a basic understanding of the structure of a spider tattoo.

I've put together a step by step photo display video of the steps you can take when drawing a creepy Spider tattoo and again this is only an idea and one that could inspire you to draw your very own Spider tattoo art and become quite good at it.
