The world’s youngest tattooist – aged five!

Toddler Emilie Darrigade trains as tattoo artist after practising on her dads arm

We all know toddlers like to doodle, but it seems that 5-year-old Emilie Darrigate has taken her sketchings a step further by upgrading from crayon to tattoo needle to become the world youngest tattoo artist!


Under the watchful eye of her expert tattooist dad Robin Labreche, little Emilie has etched a picture of a bumblebee on his forearm and it seems has caught the tattoo bug, despite being the tender age of 5.

“Emilie has always been interested in all mediums of art and has always been curious about new art forms,” her dad told The Sun. “She jumped at the chance to experiment so they gloved her up and she filled in a bumblebee design without going outside the lines.”

The toddler is becoming a regular in her daddy’s parlour and even has her sights set on more designs in the future. “Now she says she wants me to get a new tattoo of a skeleton head with cross bones and fire, so that’ll be our next project.”


Another little one who is starting young at her future career is Eleanor Gamble, who aged 5, might be the youngest person to hit a hole in one. The toddler aced the 86 yard sixth hole at the Cambridge lakes golf course and may have broken a world record. “We were quite speechless really, I think she might have broken a record because the youngest female hole-in-one golfer listed on the Guinness World Records is aged 8,” Eleanor’s dad has said.
