How to design a maori shoulder tattoo: Step one

Written by Mark Storm

This is the first step in designing a Maori style tattoo for the shoulder.

Materials used:

- A3 paper (29,7 x 42 cm) 200 grams/m2
- B1 pencil
- Eraser
- Ruler

The measurements for the tattoo depend on the size of a persons arm and shoulder.

First I draw the border of the design. A circle in the middle will cover the shoulder.
The bottom shape will wrap around the biceps and will fit seamless when ready.

Next image will be posted soon.

Kind regards,

Mark Storm
