Samoan Maori shoulder tattoo design

Written by Mark Storm


Here's the 3rd design of my latest sketches in a Samoan inspired tattoo set. This design has some influences from the Maori style, but is mainly filled with Samoan patterns.

I started with a pencil and roughly sketched the outer lines, then traced some tribal patterns:

For these symmetrical Samoan designs it's always a bit of a surprise how the final design will look. I only draw half the design and then mirror it in Photoshop. This seems easy, but it quity tricky to design the patterns in such a way that it doesn't have an obvious vertical line in the center.

Here's a picture of half the design finished:
