A little girl in Abilene, Texas, is following in her father's footsteps by learning how to be a tattoo artist.

Seven-year-old Alicia Gutierrez is learning the ropes at her dad's tattoo parlor.

Alicia's father Patrick has been practicing the art of tattooing since he was 14. He believes Alicia could be doing it by the time she is 12.

Alicia draws a lot and is now learning how to handle tattoo equipment. She is even practicing by using markers.
