Ezrah “The Shark” Dormon 12 year old tattoo artist
His first start at tattooing was when his mother Wynter Rosen went to a local tattoo shop, Honolulu Tattoos,in Panama City, Panama to get a red flower tattooed on her arm. The middle-schooler, then 11, wished out loud he could try that, and the tattoo artist and shop owner Ali Garcia offered to have him fill in some of the red ink on the flower.
It all went from there, and the first tattoo he ever did was on his dad.
His mother wasn’t shocked by any of this. She describes Ezrah as an “old soul” and says her son always plunges wholeheartedly into whatever he pursues. He’s practiced the martial art Hapkido since he was 2-and-a-half years old and is almost ready for his black belt. He plays piano and drums “effortlessly” and has acted in three large-scale theater productions. He also draws and paints every day and is a fearless trampoliner.
“My friends, at the beginning, none of them believed me. Like when I did my mom, I told them that I did the tattoo and they were like, ‘Ugh, please.’ And some people at school think that it’s awesome.
“What I want to do is, maybe I would, like, travel around the world with my tattoo machine, or when I go to college I’ll have that in my suitcase that I can just pull out and give a tattoo to earn money .”
