ABILENE, Texas (KTAB) — A 7-year old Texas girl is learning the ropes at her father’s business.

That means she’s already trying her hand at being a tattoo artist.

According to KTAB, Alicia Gutierrez wants to be just like her dad, who has been practicing the art of tattooing since he was 14.

He believes his daughter could start doing tattoos on her own even earlier.

“I want her by the age of 12 to just be rocking out bad tattoos. I mean, good tattoos, you know what I mean, awesome tattoos,” said father Patrick Gutierrez. ” And if she keeps up with what she’s doing now, she draws a lot and she watches me a lot, by the age of 10 or 12 she’s going to be pretty good.”

Patrick says he had the support of his mother and he plans to give that same support to his daughter.
