Maya Lu is the youngest tattooist in the world. Maya Lu creates tattoos with a beautifully naïve, child-like aesthetic… but maybe that isn’t so surprising, because she’s only a child herself! What is truly astonishing though, is the adult skill with which she executes her tattoo designs.
Now nine years old, Maya Lu has been tattooing since she was a toddler; she started as soon as she could hold a tattoo machine. She now has her own clients at Psyland 25 in Germany, the well known studio where Little Swastika and other avant-garde artists are based, and she is building quite a following.
