Tiny Emilie Darrigade is the world's youngest tattoo artist — after inking an intricate design on her dad's arm at the age of just five.

Emilie etched the detailed picture of a bumble bee surrounded by a laurel crown on dad Dave's forearm at a tattoo parlor.

"It was quite impressive due to the weight of the tattoo machine," said Dave.

And he says the sight of Emilie working on his arm caused quite a stir in the busy parlor.

He said: "Everyone who was in the shop, and it's a big shop, came to see Emilie at work and were all amazed and stunned at her relaxed demeanor.

"Now she says she wants me to get a new tattoo of a skeleton head with cross bones and fire so that will probably be our next project."
