Three Year Old Baby -The World's Youngest Tattoo Artist!

By Devaki

Ruby Dickinson, the three-year old baby, becomes the expert tattoo artist after her dad taught her how to use a permanent tattoo machine. She is the world's youngest tattoo artist, as of now.

Mr. Blane had giving his daughter Ruby, the lessons in tattooing, when she returns home from the nursery. He says that she is just weeks away from being good enough to ink her favourite design – a spider, on to his right leg.

“It"ll be a proud and very special moment for me and for her," says Blane, who is proud of his little daughter. “She really loves it and I"m pleased I can teach her the skills," he said.

Blane runs a tattoo studio Inkaholics Anonymous in Penmaenmawr, Conwy.

He plans to import a miniature tattoo machine from the US, specially designed for children's hands. “I"m under no illusions that she"ll do a Van Gogh – after all, she"s only three," he said.

“But I"ve got 70percent of my body covered in tattoos already and it"ll only be the size of a 2p piece, so I"m not too worried she"ll make a mess," he stated.

Ruby has broken the record of Emilie Darrigade from Canada, who tattooed part of a butterfly on to her dad's arm when she was five.

“I"m not a pushy parent but she"s been in a tattooing environment since she was born. It"s a part of her life. She comes to the studio and she gives my customers advice," Blane said. “This will set her off on a fantastic career and a tattoo machine is a lot cheaper than university fees," he added.
