London, June 13 (ANI): A British girl has become the world’s youngest tattoo artist after inking a design on her fathers arm - at the age of just five.

Emilie Darrigade showed her creativity by etching the full picture of a bumblebee surrounded by a laurel crown on dad Dave’s forearm at a tattoo parlour.

She picked the design herself because ‘Bumble Bee’ is her dad’s nickname for her.

Supervised by expert tattooist Robin Labreche, Emilie filled in the black and yellow colour on the design as well as the green in the laurel.

34-year-old security guard Dave says Emilie has already designed his next piece of body art - a flaming skull and crossbones.

“Emilie was sitting on a chair watching when Robin asked her if she would like to tattoo her dad by filling in the yellow in the bee, The Sun quoted him, as saying.

“She jumped at the chance so they gloved her up and with Robin’s coaching she filled in the whole design without going outside the lines.

“It was quite impressive due to the weight of the tattoo machine, he added. (ANI)
