It is not uncommon for young children to have innate interests or talents in the process of development. There are sports, or about numbers, knowledge and this is very admirable.
But the story of a 2-year-old child who can do something that not everyone can do has made many people admire.
Maya Lu (now 11 years old) is probably the youngest “professional” tattoo artist in the world after getting her first tattoo designs at a young age when she was still learning to walk.
It is known that she used a tattoo machine to draw the first scribbles on her mother’s leg when she was only 2 years old.
And of course, the person who is always by your side is none other than the talented mother. Maya’s mother Lily Lu, a bisexual artist, is the owner of the tattoo parlor Psyland 25, where she mainly lives.
According to Lily Lu, Maya has developed her skills over the years and learned different design techniques and how to use a tattoo machine without parental supervision.
Her mother said: ‘Me and some friends showed her a little how to use the tattoo machine and was surprised how quickly she improved.
She then began to learn other techniques and use different types of needles and larger needles. She needed help in her early years but now she can completely complete a tattoo on her own.
It’s crazy to see her sitting here and completing her own work with large tattoos in such a short time. And above all, the works are beautiful.”
Lily Lu said: “It makes no sense to compare my child’s skills with professional tattooists. But at her age, her quick and clean tattooing technique is impressive. I always tell her to do what she likes and dreams of . “
Maya loves monkey tattoos and often uses large needles to make them.
Not only completing the work independently, Maya also designs lovely tattoos for her clients herself.
Although they believe in their daughter’s skills, Lily Lu and her partner Anuskatzz said they did not intend to put any pressure on their daughter to force her to pursue tattooing.
They are just like other normal parents, always want to keep their children excited and happy with what he does.
“I think my baby is young and he does it for fun. Later, when he grows up, if he really likes it, that’s his big chance,” said Lily.
The young talented mother revealed that Maya loves being at the tattoo studio and she has her own corner to draw and create her own tattoo works.
A lot of adults like her works but according to LiLy and want to be done by her, but Maya only does when she likes so it is difficult to make an appointment.
