Ruby Dickinson May Be Youngest Tattoo Artist

Ruby Dickinson is only three years old but she is already marking her mark in the world – with tattoos. The ink-credible Welsh toddler could become the world's youngest tattoo artist, according to published reports.

At an age when most kids only think about playground swings, Ruby takes tattoo lessons after nursery school. She also practices with a toy kit in her father's tattoo shop.

Ruby "really loves" learning tattoo art, according to proud papa Blane Dickinson.

Mr. Dickinson has ordered an American-made ink gun specifically designed for small hands. The kit will be a present for Ruby's fourth birthday in October. That's when Dickinson hopes to break Canadian Emilie Darrigade's record of tattooing part of a butterfly on her father's arm at the tender age of five.

Dickinson told the North Wales Pioneer newspaper : "Ruby is well aware she is getting the kit, she cannot wait. She wants to be a tattoo artist when she grows up."

Right now, Ruby is weeks away from being able to draw a complete spider on his right leg, The Sun reported.

"The aim is to get her to tattoo my leg with a birthday message for my 40th birthday," Dickinson told the North Wales Pioneer.

However, Dickinson, who has tattoos over 70 percent of his body, doesn't expect a very elaborate design. Blane, 36, said, "I'm under no illusions that she'll do a Van Gogh, after all she's only three-and-a-half."

Although he hopes Ruby will make tattoo art her career, he told the North Wales Pioneer he will allow the little girl to make her own choices.
