Step 1 – How to Design a Tattoo

Learn how to use an eraser tool and transfer your design. There are many software programs that will help you transfer designs. Some of them come free with your tattoo; some are available as a download from the internet. Once you have learned how to do this, the next step is to decide what tattoo you want to do.

Step 2

Now that you know what tattoos you would like, you must find a good place to get your design done. You may go to a studio and get it done, or you can use the internet. There are a number of websites that you can visit. These websites will give you different kinds of images to choose from, and they often have a gallery of tattoos that people have uploaded. These galleries can be very helpful for you in deciding on what tattoos you would like to do.

Step 3 

After choosing which image you want to use, check it to make sure it is in stock. If it is not in stock, you will need to go online and order it. You should also keep in mind that you can print out as many copies as you need. This will save you money, especially if you have a large family and friends to cover. The last thing you want to do is to run out of ink. So, find out how much ink is left and use an eraser tool to make your tattoo look exactly like it does in the picture.

Step 4 

After all the ink has dried, it is time to blend the two layers together. To blend the two layers, you will have to use a brush or a sponge to blend the image so that it looks like it is a one-layered tattoo. This will make your tattoo looks like one big piece of art.

Step 5

Now, it is time to draw the new layer of the design onto your skin. This new layer of design would be the color of your choice. If you saw this layer when your tattoo is finished, it would look like a colored border.

If you see your tattoo after it is finished, you will see a black border. The new layer of color adds depth and realism to your tattoo. You should be careful in drawing the new layer onto your body because it could bleed or get ink all over your new layer. That is why it is important to use an eraser. It helps to stop the bleeding.

Step 6 

You are probably wondering what type of image you should choose now. Well, the first thing you should decide is what type of design you would like. Would you like a floral design, star design, heart design, or something else? Now, it is time to draw those details. If you have a sketch of the image that you want your tattoo to be, that will make it easier for you to draw the design.

Once you are done with the outline of the design, you can start adding the color. This part is easy because you just add more color to the outline of your image. I would suggest using a black ink pen to write on your new layer. This will make it much easier for you to add color.

After that, you can start adding the main color to your tattoo. For the best results, I would recommend that you put the main color on the top of your image and let it sink down to your new layer below. This will give your tattoo that 3D effect that you are trying to achieve. Another tip would be to make sure that you apply the same color on your new layer as you applied to the old layer.

The last step is to draw the details of your tattoo. This step is very important because it will help you know if your design will look good when it is finished. To do this, you will need a pencil and some freehand. You will start by creating circles on your tattoo. Make sure that you choose a design that you think looks nice.

Bottom Line

Create a design from basic shapes that you have inked. Apply it to your skin and wait for it to dry. When it is ready, you will need to take it off. You should not touch your tattoo with your bare hands. It is better if you use a sterile cotton swab to clean it before you wear it. If you get a design that you like, remember these easy steps, and you should be able to create an amazing tattoo.
