My world has officially been turned upside down by learning what 12 year olds can do these days


At an age when most kids keep their hands busy with video game controllers, smartphones or tablets, 12-year-old Ezrah Dormon, from Panama City, is already a popular tattoo artist. Despite his young age, people are lining up to have him ink a permanent tattoo into their skin.

Tattoo parlors are usually off-limits to kids, but walk into the Honolulu tattoo shop in Panama City, and you may see a cute long-haired kid painstakingly working on a client’s tattoo or honing his inking skills on a grapefruit. His name is Ezrah, and he is already one of the most in-demand artists in Panama. I don’t know what it is about getting tattooed by an inexperienced child, but people are reportedly lining up to have him work his magic on them. They’ve all been pleased with his work, too.

While his pre-teen peers start pushing boundaries and seeking more freedom, Ezrah Dormon is mastering a skill usually reserved for adults. The 12-year-old Panama City boy is tattooing people for real; and he’s even inked his mum and his maths teacher.

He currently apprentices for the Honolulu tattoo parlour and people are lining up to get inked with his designs. You might be wondering how on earth someone who isn’t old enough to get a tattoo ends up tattooing others.

It all began when Ezrah, already a competent artist, attended a tattoo party with his mother Wynter Rosen and watched her get a tattoo. The youngster showed such a keen interest in the process that, with his mum’s blessing, shop owner Ali Garcia allowed him to fill in part of the tattoo.

Now Ezrah, who goes by Eztheshark on Instagram thanks to his particular love of sharks, is on a roll and gaining worldwide attention for his considerable talents.

He practises on citrus fruits, draws up his own designs and has just completed his first full tattoo, after contributing to many under close supervision from his mentors Ali and Margarita Marzon.
