Do you want a 12-year old to give you a tatto?
If the answer is yes, your bravery/optimism might lead you to the services of Ezrah Dormon, one of the world’s youngest tattoo artists.
Already, the Panamanian boy has inked 20 people. He is now learning from Ali Garcia, a professional tattooist in Honolulu.
Dormon, who goes by “Ezrah the Shark” on Instagram, began his tattoo career at the tender age of 11.
After watching Garcia’s mother tattoo a red rose, he realized his passion.
It wasn’t long until the professional artist began showing Dormon how to do one himself.
Although his career is booming, Dormon insists that he’s still at the beginning of his artistic development.
“Whenever someone comes to get a tattoo they always have to know that I’m still learning, that I’m just an apprentice,” Dormon said in a video posted by NowThis.
“They’ll always be a little bit nervous but they’re always usually excited,” he added.
He is able to draw panthers, sharks, butterflies, and roses.
According to the budding tattoo artist, he hopes to develop his skills further and eventually to be a professional.
However, it’s not the only potential career path for the talented youngster.
As part of Panama Fashion Week, Dormon was recently a model in a show that Antonio Feuillebois (Buenos Aires) put on for Dormon.
“@antoniofeuillebois Thank you for having me on your runway last night. It was so fun for me,” he wrote in an Instagram post following the show.
“I really love your clothes and I think you are one of the greatest. U are one of those people who will have a documentary about their life because I know you love what you do.”
His Instagram account already boasts more than 44,000 followers. He is only going to grow and become a social media celebrity who tattoos and models people.
