STEP 1. First draw a long vertical line in the center of your sheet of paper. Next add the spiral or swirl like lines that need to be drawn so that they appear to be hugging each other. Once that is done draw the bottom design line too.   STEP 2. Here you will carefully sketch out the uniformed lines that curve in a way to look like arched nails of some sorts. Take your time and just follow the lining. Start from the top, and work your way down.   STEP 3. As you can see the next two shapes look like curled horns that flow into each other. There is also detached shapes at the base of the top horn, and then the brass looking ends. Add some designing definition, and move to the next step.   STEP 4. Now you will start sketching out the lining that will shape and form the left side of the Maori tattoo. Take your time and just slowly follow the lining until your art looks like this forth step.   STEP 5. For your final step all you need to do is draw the right side curled in to hug the left side as you see here. When the guidelines are erased, you should end up with Maori art that resembles a woman's face.   STEP 6. Now you're done. Color in your tattoo art so you can see the face much clearer. This type of Maori art is a good stencil if you are looking for a cool design for your shoulder, elbow, or calf. I hope you liked this tutorial, be sure to join me again real soon.   Step 1. Step 2.
