7-Year-Old Trains to be Tattoo Artist


A little girl from Texas wants to be just like dad.

Alicia Gutierrez, 7, is trying her hand at being a tattoo artist at her father’s parlor in Abilene.

Her dad Patrick has been practicing the art of tattooing since he was 14. He believes his daughter could start doing tattoos on her own even earlier.

“I want her by the age of 12 to just be rocking out bad tattoos,” he said. “I mean, good tattoos, you know what I mean, awesome tattoos. And if she keeps up with what she’s doing now, she draws a lot and she watches me a lot, by the age of 10 or 12 she’s going to be pretty good.”

Patrick says he had the support of his mother and he plans to give that same support to his daughter.
