We all know that tattoos are (typically) reserved for people who over the age of 18 - but what about the artists doing the tattooing?


Ezrah Dormon is a 12-year-old boy who's under the Internet spotlight for his pretty impressive tattooing skills.


The youngster was introduced to the art form when he witnessed his mum getting a tatoo.


As shared by Teen Vogue, hi mum actually encouraged his interest: "I was just getting that tattoo and Ezrah was just sitting there watching us and talking. And he was like, 'Wow, I really wish I could try that. I would love to know how to do that,' and Ali was, like, 'Well, why don't you try it now?'"



Thanks for trusting me and support me in all this. Today I am better because I had this amazing oportunity. Thanks @bemund

It all went from there, and the first tattoo he ever did was on his (very trusting) dad.  


Since then, he's worked on a couple dozen more as a helper, mostly for "traditional" tattoo designs, and has adopted the shark as his ink moniker.


You would think that working as a tattoo artist would have earned young Ezrah some serious swag-points, but that has actually not been the case.



I had fun today! @honolulutattoos Thanks @vanspty for my awesome clothes.

"My friends, at the beginning, none of them believed me. Like when I did my mom, I told them that I did the tattoo and they were like, 'Ugh, please.' And some people at school think that it's awesome.


"What I want to do is, maybe I would, like, travel around the world with my tattoo gun, or when I go to college I'll have that in my suitcase that I can just pull out and give a tattoo to earn money."




We like this kid already!


Follow him on Instagram, and let us know what you think.


Is his hobby inappropriate, or kind of cool?
