Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a dragon tattoo. So we're going to do the tattoo first before we put it on the back. So I'm going to start with simple shapes, a circle for the head and then we're going to draw an S shape that goes round curly like that and then this side of the dragon needs to follow all the way around like so. Let's get rid of these two lines to make sure that the tail crosses over the body. So for the head we're going to do a couple lines that come up like this, just curvy lines that can be like horns or tufts of hair whichever you want your dragon to have, some tusks coming out of the mouth, let's bring in the mouth like so, open it up, a couple little eyes. Then if you want some more little hairy bits coming off the front of your dragon you can do as many as you want. The back of the dragon I'm just going to do a lot of little triangle like shapes for the tail. For detail I'm going to put a line right through the center and then a couple little squiggle shapes for scales. As you get smaller they can just be little Cs or a lot of little just little just little lines. He needs a couple feet so I'm just going to give him some really big clawed feet and then we need to make this a real tattoo so let's put it on someone's back. So let's just draw his shoulders and a line down. It's a pretty big tattoo, a line down here, go down in the pants area and then some arms and there we go. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw a dragon tattoo.
