The so-called youngest tattoo artist, Maya Lu used a tattoo gun to make the first scribbles on her mother’s foot when she was only 2 years old.
Maya Lu (living in Tengen, southern Germany) is probably the youngest professional tattoo artist in the world after having the first tattoo samples at the age of toddler. Maya’s mother, Lily Lu, a bisexual artist, owns the tattoo shop Psyland 25, which is also where she lives.
According to Lily Lu, Maya has developed her skills over the years and learned various design techniques and how to use a tattoo gun without parental supervision.

Her mother and I said, “Some friends and I showed her a little way of using a tattoo gun and was very surprised when it progressed so fast. She then started to learn other techniques and used different needles and larger needles. She needed a little help in the first few years, but now she can complete a tattoo on her own.
It’s crazy to see her sitting here and completing her own work with large tattoos in just a short time. Above all, these works are very beautiful. ”
Maya loves monkey tattoos and often uses large needles to make them.
Although she believes in her skills, Lily Lu and her partner Anuskatzz said they did not intend to put any pressure on girls to force her to pursue tattooing. They just want her excited and happy with what she does.
Lily Lu said: “It’s pointless to compare my child’s skills with professional tattooists. But at her age, her fast and clean tattoo technique is impressive. I always tell her to do what she likes and dreams. ”

Maya loves being at the tattoo studio. She has her own corner to draw and create her own tattoo works. Many adults like her works, but according to LiLy, Maya only works when she likes, so it is difficult to make an appointment.
“I think my child is young and he does it for fun. Later on, if he really likes it, it’s his big chance, ”Lily said.
