Meet Ezrah “The Shark” Dormon, a 12-year-old who instead of simply dreaming of becoming a tattoo artist has already started living his dream.

The Panama-based youngster was fascinated by the inking process when his mother was getting a tattoo done at the Honolulu tattoo shop. The owner, Ali Garcia, noticed that and he gave Ezrah the ink gun to fill a part of his mother’s tattoo. And he was hooked ever since.

Now he’s become Garcia’s apprentice and done over 20 tattoos already, including the one of his own math teacher! Ezra practices new designs on oranges and grapefruits, on which he draws panthers, swallows, snakes, roses and sharks – his spirit animal that got him the cool nickname.

Despite parents and the boy enjoying his new hobby, the story resonated differently across the internet also receiving some negative feedback about a boy wielding an ink gun. But what do you think about it?
