These moon drawings make perfect references for your next art project or even your next tattoo.

If you are inspired by the moon, I know you’ll appreciate the drawings that I’m sharing below. From simple moon drawings to more advanced and detailed drawings, there’s a reference here for everyone.

Fun Moon Fact: Did you know that there is no dark side of the moon? Both sides of the moon see the same amount of sunlight. However, only one side of the moon is ever seen from Earth. Good to know, huh?

1. Moon with Flowers

Along with being a fun drawing reference, this beautiful drawing of a moon with flowers would make a great tattoo. You can place it on your ankle, neck, or wrist area.

9. Get Creative with Dotwork

This drawing is absolutely fantastic. It looks like the artist used dotwork to complete the majority of this drawing. If you’ve never tried dotwork, I highly recommend giving it a try. It’s a challenging but rewarding art experience.

10. Mountains and Trees

Similar to a few moon drawings that I shared earlier, this moon is filled with mountains and trees, water, and a cool camper van. There is also the addition of a campfire.

Have a little fun by using this line drawing as a reference. This drawing would look great hand-drawn with acrylic paint pens These pens would add a beautiful glossy finish to the completed art piece.
