STEP 1. Start by making an oblong shape for the butterfly's body like so, but remember that it will turn into a nose design later. Next, draw the arched lines for the wings, and then move to step two.   STEP 2. Now you will draw in the head, shape out the mid section of the body, and sketch out the lower part of the body to look like the shape of a human nose.   STEP 3. Sketch out some pretty nice, thick antenna which will also act as the eyes eyebrows. When this is done, move to step four.   STEP 4. You are closer to finishing this lesson. Now it's time to sketch out the first section of wing of a two part wing design. This should be sketched out to look like an eye mask of some sorts, or whatever you want it to be. When you have the design down packed, you can draw in the top eye lids and make sure it's thick and or bold.   STEP 5. Sketch out the second part of the two part wing like you see here, and be sure the edging consists of waves and delicate like patterns. Draw in the bottom eye lid, and move to step six.   STEP 6. Okay guys this is your last drawing step. Draw in the eyeballs, and pupils and then sketch in some pretty eyelashes. You will then add the detailing design pattern to the wings and because I wanted to go with the monarch butterfly pattern, I added some spots and lines that are commonly seen on the monarch butterfly wings. Erase the guides and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 7. Here is what the finished product looks like. See how beautiful the butterfly tattoo came out? Now you can take this art to your tattoo artist, or color it in for fun.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7.
