Hi, I'm Morgan, and this is my seven-year-old daughter Delilah. And for Mother's Day this year, I took her to a tattoo parlor to have her design something original for me!
We ventured to The Warren Tattoo on Sunset Blvd for my fresk ink, and we couldn't have picked a better place. Owner and artist Zoey Taylor is a huge Bunny fan (thus, the name of her shop) and so is Dee!
I lucked out and Delilah opted to draw a tulip because (fun fact!) they keep growing even after they're cut.
Initially, I had just planned to let Delilah hold my hand while the incredible Zoey Taylor interpreted D's artwork on my arm. But, the thing is, Zoey really knows how to create a tattoo that you'll treasure forever.
So, as Dee drew, Zoey casually mentioned that she was insured to teach – and that Delilah could actually participate in the tattoo if she was interested. And y'know, if I was cool with having her actually tattoo me.
The artwork was finalized, and the outline was transferred.
Zoey lined the piece, and then had Delilah sit on her lap to help color it in!
Zoey never took her hands off the machine, but definitely gave Delilah the control of where the needle went.
My first-grader tattooed me. You guys. Delilah tattooed me! Herself! I can't believe it! She's so proud.
To see how it all went down, check out the video:
