Meet Ezrah, The 12-Year-Old Tattoo Prodigy
Meet Ezrah. He is only 12 years old and loves to draw. In fact, he has to draw a lot because he is already an apprentice at a tattoo shop in Panama and has already tattooed people. His work certainly speaks for itself, and if you consider how well he does at just 12 years old, imagine what it will be like when he’s actually of legal age to get a tattoo of his own
But that doesn’t stop him from tattooing other people!
Sometimes he practices on oranges and grapefruits, but he’s also tattooed over twenty people as well!
His name is Ezrah Dormon, but people call him The Shark
He was inspired to pick up the ink gun after watching his mom get a tattoo at Honolulu tattoo shop in Panama
With his mom’s permission, the owner let Ezrah ink a part of the tattoo she was getting
After that, he was hooked
The shop’s owner, Ali Garcia, has been showing him the ropes ever since
He’s taught him how to draw various designs
So far he can draw panthers, swallows, snakes, roses, and – of course – sharks
Garcia lets Ezrah practice at the shop
He’s even tattooed his own math teacher!
There’s no denying that the kid has some incredible talent
But some people weren’t sure what to think
Others however had nothing but praise for the youngster
