Hey Femm readers. For today’s article, I’ll be sharing with you guys a story about an incredible tattoo artist that’s only twelve years old. Ezrah Dormon is a Traditional tattoo artist, one of the youngest in the world. With only six months of studying and training, he’s already begun to give people tattoos, twenty-five to be exact. Dormon explains that he loves giving tattoos to people that mean something to them and he loves to hear the stories behind the tattoo.
One of the first people he tattooed was his Mom. He had already been practicing and he felt that being a tattoo artist was something he could really stick with doing. He did a flower design tattoo on his mother’s arm and it turned out amazing. His Mom was very proud and emotional to see how talented her little boy was. Dormon even has a mentor, Ali, who helps him to hone his craft.
I know what you’re thinking, how do you practice becoming a tattoo artist? Well, according to his mentor you must practice drawing every day. You also need to practice drawing on fruit; mainly a grapefruit for Dormon. Probably because fruits have skins that match the texture of human skin. Even makeup artist use lemons to talk about pores and foundation.
Not only has his mentors taught him how to draw and paint, but they also teach him the importance of sanitation, keeping his station organized, how to set up the machines, how to set up the studio, and anything else he’ll need to be an extraordinary tattoo artist one day. His mentors are very strict with him, so he always stays on the right track to become better. Some of his clients have heard about him on Instagram and other social media platforms. Dormon even respects the fact that as of right now he’s too young to have a tattoo himself but wants one in about nine years. Dormon is going to be a renowned artist one day. ‘til next time Femm readers.
