    Hi Rzldzl!
    If you want to learn the basics of drawing I suggest studying anatomy especially girls if you want to be able to design the typical flash stuff.
    Look for books from Loomis or Bridgman and just start drawing a lot!
    Go look at pictures of skulls,flowers and such, copy them to get them into your system.
    Once you have a basic idea of how to draw people with lines you can improve these skills by doing quick poses from i.e. posemaniacs.com to make these lines more efficient.
    It's better not to restrict yourself with the idea you want to do tattoo designs though. Just try learning all of it (perspective,flora and fauna, a bit of typography, basics of composition, color etc.) and use your search engine! Copy things you like.. it will become your own eventually!
    Start a sketchbook here if you like and upload your progress!
