Finished Maori Shoulder piece

Here's the finished shoulder tattoo design in Maori style.

I have to add it to my website/webshop, but here's a small preview for you.

Last week I made a custom
piece for a customer from N
It had to match the style of an existing tattoo.
He wanted a symmetrical design, based on a fish/shark, with elements like triangles and scales.

inspiration also resulted in another shoulder piece.
Not a
vailable on my website yet, because I need to scan it in high resolution.
Please let me know what you think of
the latest designs!

I'm working on a step by step example on how to I design my maori shoulder pieces. Hope to post it in a few days.

Kind regards,


Maori Shoulder Piece

Hi there,

Today I worked on a new Maori shoulder piece.
When I draw a new design, I start with a sheet of paper,
200 grams, size A3 (29,7 x 42cm).

The materials I use are just a simple medium hard pencil for the first sketch.

First I make a rough sketch for the shape of the design.
Then some main elements are designed and I try to get a nice flow in the overall design.
(My tattoo's have no specific meanings, I just combine different tattoo styles into one esthetic image)

When that's done, I fill the small shapes with nice triangles, lines or other tribal tattoo patterns.

Finally I trace the tattoo design with a black marker and remove the pencil lines.

If you have questions on my Maori designs, just contact me at info@storm3d.com,

Kind regards, Mark Storm

New blog on Maori tattoo designs


Today I started my new weblog, to give you some information on my tattoo designs and give an inside look on how I create the images.
I always loved to draw and sketch, but for the past five years I have been creating Maori and other tribal tattoo designs.

On the 1st of July, my new tattoo website went online.
It's a webshop for all my tattoo designs. Customers can purchase the high resolution designs, to use for a personal tattoo.
I also do custom pieces, just contact me for details and pricing.
