Ezrah Dormon, a 12-year-old from Panama has already performed 20 inkings on willing customers and learning the tricks of the trade from professional tattooist Ali Garcia at his studio in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Dormon, who goes by the name ‘Ezrah the Shark’ on Instagram, began his career at the age of 11 and found his calling after watching his mum get a tattoo of a red flower from Garcia.

 

It wasn’t long until the professional artist began showing Dormon how to do one himself.

While his career is already showing considerable promise, Dormon is keen to tress that he is still in the early stages of his development as an artist.

Speaking in a video posted by NowThis, Dormon says, ““Whenever someone comes to get a tattoo they always have to know that I’m still learning, that I’m just an apprentice.” He went on to add that while they are always a little bit nervous but they’re always excited as well.

So far, he has learnt to draw roses, panthers, swallows and sharks and regularly practises his designs on grapefruits.

 

The budding artist explained that he intends to continue developing his skills and hopes to become a professional tattooist in the future.
