Ezrah “The Shark” Dormon is 12-years-old. He isn’t old enough to get a tattoo, but that’s not stopping him from tattooing other people!
The Panama-based pre-teen tattoo artist was first inspired to pick up the ink gun when he watched his mother get a tattoo at Honolulu tattoo shop. Noticing Ezrah’s keen interest, the owner of the shop, Ali Garcia, let the youngster fill in a part of the tattoo (with his mom’s permission of course!) and the kid’s been hooked ever since. He’s already inked about twenty people, plus countless oranges and grapefruits (they’re good for practice apparently), all from the Honolulu tattoo shop where he’s studying as Garcia’s apprentice. The owner has taught him how to draw various designs including panthers, swallows, snakes, roses and sharks – the latter being the boy’s signature animal. Ezrah has even tattooed his own math teacher! While there’s no doubt that the kid’s got talent, not everybody agrees with him wielding an ink gun. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
