Here's a forearm tattoo design in Kirituhi style, it's a custom design for a customer from the USA.He wanted an original Maori piece on his left forearm and a Kirituhi design on his other forearm.
First I started to draw the outline of the design and began filling the shape with flowing lines, koru curves and sharp edges.
I sent it to the customer to check if I was heading in the right direction. He really liked the first preview, so I could start on the fill with some tribal patterns.
Here are two pictures of the sketch, the outlines, the total sketch and finally the completed design.
Kind regards, Mark Storm
