In this instructables I will show how to easily draw a pin up girl tattoo. Is relatively easy because vintage tattoo had simple line and shape and use only few colors. Plus vintage tattoo don't need a look too professional.
Is nice to make your own tattoo or just draw one for fun.
-make simple and single outline;
-use very few color, because in the past there weren't all the choose of tattoo ink we have today;
-every piece you don't color in the flash will be "pink skin" in a real tattoo (so I preferred to cover the whole paper in pink to have a better idea of the real tattoo final look);
-try to don't make the parallel line of your draw to close together because in a real tattoo the ink will spread and the lines will touch each other;
-don't be afraid to use black for shading and live many uncolored space (for example for the girl skin, or for the edges of the objects).
Step 1: WHAT YOU NEED
-pencil (2 or 3 B);
-soft colored pencils (I used prismacolor);
-ink and nib (or black ink pen);
-smooth paper ;
-non abrasive eraser (the almost transparent kind);
