10-Year-Old Girl Follows In Dad’s Footsteps To Become Tattoo Artist

Noko Nishigaki, daughter of a famous Japanese tattoo artist, “Gakkin”, recently moved to Amsterdam. She worked for three years on her drawing techniques, and now she tattoos amazing images in the studio.

Gakkin and Noko’s mother, Megumi, manage their daughter’s Instagram account and support her passion for tattooing as a budding apprentice, but there is no grand marketing plan or pressure behind sharing her work on the platform. Their approach towards their daughter’s journey as a tattoo artist is serene, allowing her the space to be a child, but also to explore the art form as much as she would like, for as long as she would like.

“We think [that] to find [a] dream – what she wants to be, what she wants to do in the future, is not easy at a young age,” explains Gakkin. “So she might change her mind in the future – but [for] now, she is interested in tattooing and enjoying it so much. We want to do our best to support her. It’s normal as parents, we think. She is only 10 years old – we want her to see many things. We want to give her any chance. We are looking forward to seeing how she grows.”
