The previous generation wanted to become a pilot, teacher, engineer or doctor but the current generation thinks to opt for other professions as well.
Thomas Spring, a 10-year-old boy wishes to become a tattoo artist, actor, and special effects makeup artist. What's amazing is that the talented kid is already following his passion at an age so young.
Recently, the boy's mother shared some of his work on social media where he gained quite a following for his skills.
“My son’s name is Thomas Spring but his nickname is Bubba. He is the youngest of 5 siblings,” Katie Eklund said, “His father is a musician and drummer for formal metal band Brutal Demise, his mother is a fine art and fantasy photographer and creator of Horns & Halos Photography, and his stepfather is an Engineer who is also a talented artist and has done tattoos in the past.”
“Thomas always had a pen and paper in hand since he was around 2 or 3 years old learning to write and color. He started to develop a taste in heavy metal music since his dad is a musician and also covered in tattoos,” the mother talked about the boy’s inspiration" she added. "Thomas started tracing skulls and anatomically correct hearts, now he free hands and “eyeballs” all of those things, including characters like Pennywise and The Joker, and various DC and Marvel Comics."
“He loves face painting and turning himself into different characters too, often dressing up as The Joker and using household supplies to create SFX makeup,” Katie expressed.
When asked about the boy's inspiration, Katie said, “He gets inspired by his favorite movies, books, and the music he listens to."
Katie further revealed that her son's biggest desire is to live a life of creativity and expression.
"He has had tattoo artists from Canada and Columbia reach out to him and commission him for some pieces. Tattoos By Skinny LLC in PA hired Thomas to create flash sheets for him, and every time someone gets one of Thomas’ tattoos, they will be sending a portion of the tips to him. Salt Water Tattoos in Canada sent out a gift package of merchandise. As well as other lovely people writing him letters saying he is inspiring and that they are artists who wish they were supported and encouraged at a young age as his family has been.”
