Step 4. Start sketching out the features and lines for nose shape of the tiger, its roaring mouth, and then add some patterns on inner border, as you can see in the given example. Draw wrinkles of the mouth and trace the nose.
Step 5. Draw the ears, and then the rest of the open jaws of the enraged cat. The pattern of the hinder part of the head should look suggestive of hair of the beast, to convey its fur.
Step 6. Tigers, as all felines, usually have very sharp claws. And to show and remind about this fact even more, draw four sharp shapes of claws for the hinder part of the head.
Step 7. All you should do now is to rub off all the unnecessary lines of the first step. And sketch the missing fangs and tongue for the mouth. Trace all the lines and shapes with the help of more thick and clean lines to finish the general picture of the tiger tattoo. Proceed to the small details.
