Most 12-year-old kids have no idea what they want to do when they grow up. That’s not Ezrah “The Shark” Dormon. The Panama-based pre-teen is intent on becoming a tattoo artist and unlike others his age, can boast that he’s already inked interested clientele. However, not everyone is happy about his early career decision.

Ezrah’s interest in tattooing began when he watched his mother get inked at a Honolulu tattoo shop. The owner of the facility, Ali Garcia, noticed how intently he watched the process. So, she asked his mother if he could participate, and the youngster ended up filling in part of the tattoo. Ever since then, he’s been hooked!

According to Bored Panda, Ezrah has already tattooed about 22 people. And, he’s given tattoos to countless grapefruits and oranges. All of the inking has taken place at the same Honolulu tattoo shop where he studies as Garcia’s apprentice. So far, he’s learned how to draw panthers, swallows, roses, snakes, and sharks. To his delight, he’s even tattooed his math teacher.

Though there is no denying Ezrah is talented, not everyone is happy about letting him wield an ink gun at such a young age. Scroll through some of his artwork below and share your thoughts in the comments section!
