12-Year Old Boy Might Be The Youngest Tattoo Prodigy But His Works Show His Badass Skills

A 12-year-old boy is catching the attention of many as he started his tattooing career at a very young age.

There’s this inspirational quote that says, “If there’s even a slight chance at getting something that will make you happy, risk it. Life’s too short, and happiness is too rare.” This is probably how a young teen feels about his newly-discovered passion and he is not letting his age hinder him from becoming great at it.

A 12-year-old teen from Panama named Ezrah Dormon, who is now known as “The Shark”, was inspired by an artist who did his mother’s tattoo in Honolulu. As Ezrah watched his mom being tattooed, he had this thought of wanting to try it.

Ezrah Dormon first fell in love with doing tattoos when his mom got inked and tried to participate in coloring the piece.

Ezrah Dormon was only 11 when a tattoo shop owner got him as an apprentice.

The owner of the tattoo shop, Ali Garcia, noticed Ezrah’s interest in doing tattoo, so she let this young man fill in some parts of his mom’s tattoo. With his mom’s permission, Ezrah “The Shark” took the chance to pick up the ink gun and he started filling his mother’s skin.

Ezrah has been practicing with basic designs but is looking forward to creating more complicated works soon.

This young boy is working really hard in learning to mix colors for his next tattoos.

Ezrah since got fascinated and felt fulfilled after his first try. The desire for doing some more tattoo works then started to grow within him. This young teen recently posted on social media thanking everyone for the support and encouragement he has been receiving. He also mentioned on the post that he wants to be called as a real tattoo artist someday.

Ezrah couldn’t believe all the support he’s getting from people these days.

On another post shared by Ezrah, he wrote:

“I just completed my first full tattoo on a real person and that was super exciting.”

Ezrah’s been practicing to draw and paint not only on paper but also on grapefruits and oranges.

Now working as a tattoo apprentice, Ezrah aims to do one painting a week and share the experience on his Facebook account.

He is now able to color pieces and is feeling proud with every finished tattoo.

As of late, Ezrah has already tattooed over 20 people! BoredPanda also shared that he has even tattooed his math teacher which made him felt more fulfilled. The owner of the tattoo shop taught him lots but basic designs such as panthers, swallows, snakes, roses and sharks later became his signature designs.

Still, there are others who doubt his talents because of his young age. Despite that, Ezrah is working hard to keep growing in this new hobby.

Ezrah is probably the youngest tattoo artist in the world today and he’s determined to keep getting better at it.

Snope’s Owner And CEO Allegedly Defrauding Own Site For His Own Profit

Fact-checking site Snopes is in trouble.

Fact-checking website Snopes is in hot water. One of the owners and the CEO of the fact-checking website is accused of fraud, embezzlement, and using company funds and profits to pay for prostitution. Its founders are ex-spouses, David and Barbara Mikkelson, and their bitter ending is causing their site to hit rock bottom.

Facebook has hired Snopes, among several others, to arbitrate which news are worthy to appear on your news feeds and which ones should be disputed. It has caused an outrage as it is left-leaning because of the controversies its owners are involved in. Snopes might still be afloat for a long while though, but it probably depends on how its handlers settle their personal and business issues.

The ex-couple has been hurling accusations at each other as a part of their ongoing legal battle following their divorce. In a shocking revelation, though, the allegations are quite unprofessional and it is surely staining the name that the site has established for years.

The owners of Snopes are in a longstanding legal battle involving site’s funds and profits.

David remarried just last month and talks are rife that his new wife used to work as an escort and a porn actress. She’s now working as an administrative assistant and a fact checker at Snopes, and Barbara is nothing near to being okay with this.

Before the launch of Snopes, Barbara and David reportedly met on an online message board in the early 90s. They created a fake organization then, which they called “The San Fernando Valley Folklore Society,” which aimed to help “make inquiries seem more legit.” They then left the organization and created Snopes after marrying in 1995. They endured each other for as long as over two decades before they finally divorced in 2015.

The former wife of Snopes’ CEO accused him of embezzlement and revealed how he used the site’s funds for his personal use.

Their meetings in the court didn’t end with the finalization of their divorce. The duo remains embroiled in a caustic legal battle, following their concerns on each other’s use of Snopes’ funds. Both are accusing each other of financial impropriety, with Barbara saying her ex-husband is guilty of embezzlement. She also suggests that David is attempting a “boondoggle” to alter their business’ tax arrangements. On the other hand, David claims his ex-wife took millions from their joint accounts that she might have used to purchase a property in Las Vegas.

David is accused of raiding Snopes’ bank account “for his personal use and attorney fees.”

She also said the CEO embezzled $98,000 from Snopes over the course of four years, which he allegedly used on the prostitutes he hired in the past. Barbara also exposed how David took money from the company to pay for his “girlfriend’s” ticket to Buenos Aires and took another $10,000 to give to his lover as an allowance for her “personal vacation” in India.

David disputes the allegations saying India was a business trip as he was then familiarizing himself with the country so he can set up another fact-checking site in the area. He also said that the $10,000 was used to finance only 22.5 percent of the total cost of the said trip.

Barbara pleads for her ex-husband to be prohibited from using Snopes’ debit card and checks “right away” as he might drain the entire account of the site. This was just the start of their battle though as surprisingly, they have more other disagreements they should settle.

One of the other issues they tried to fix was David’s demand for a salary increase. He wanted his salary to be raised from $240,000 to $360,000 since his original yearly earning will put him below the ‘industry standards,’ hence asking his salary cap to go as high as $720,000 per year. Barbara described David’s request as “not even in the galaxy of reasonable” but later gave in to his demands.

David has, however, denied the accusations and made his own demands including an increase in salary.

In the original settlement of the legal war, Barbara reportedly received $1.5 million in stocks, savings, and other investments. She also received another $660,000 after agreeing to give up her claim to their home in Calabasas, California. On the other hand, David got to keep their joint baseball card collection of undisclosed value as well as two savings accounts with a combined balance of $1.89 million.

Each of them later took half of Snopes’ checking account, which has a balance of $240,000, by the end of 2015. Also, both received $20,000 a month as a draw against the profits and a share of any net profit the company made after those payments. The monthly payments were later increased to $30,000.

Their battle on finances didn’t end with the settlement as “court documents show that a decision on David’s salary for 2016 became bogged down in a legal argument when Barbara referred it to an arbiter, and the appointment of the arbiter became itself a matter of dispute.”

Since their divorce, David hired Elyssa Young, his new wife. Young’s profiles revealing her R-18 profession are still active, but it wasn’t proven that she’s still in the industry. This and her political past are sparking concerns as Snopes will soon take over Facebook’s censorship task.

The CEO is now married to a former escort and the site is being criticized for its choice of fact-checkers.

Young was discovered to ran an “unsuccessful bid on the Libertarian ticket for U.S. Congress in Hawaii in 2004.” She also became the subject of legitimate controversy for a snafu where she misspelled her Republican competitor’s name on her campaign website.

Another Snopes employee causing an uproar is the company’s lead fact-checker, Kim LaCapria who wrote on her personal blog published on the site that she “played scrabble [sic], smoked pot, and posted to Snopes. That’s what I did on my day ‘on’ too.” David commented on the criticisms of his employees saying they have no set requirements on who to hire given the broad scope of the job. He explained:

“Accordingly, our editorial staff is drawn from diverse backgrounds; some of them have degrees and/or professional experience in journalism, and some of them don’t.”

With all these controversies surrounding Snopes, people are starting to have doubts whether the site accurately does its job in spotting fake news or simply delivering unconfirmed points all for the sake of money.

Man Set To Serve 15 Years In Jail For Vandalizing Mosque And Leaving Bacon In Its Frontage

The man pleaded guilty to the hate crime.

It is difficult to trace the history of religious wars but it has always been bloody since the olden times. Though modernization suggests acceptance and elimination of discrimination, the religious aspect of the world has used development for different purposes. The conflict of sects has already become worse, now involving a whole country to a war, giving birth to terrorism.

The United States is said to be the land of the free. Apparently, respect for this so-called freedom has limitations, most especially in the expression of ones’ beliefs. Some people in the country are still hesitant to embrace their Muslim brothers that they do the extremes just to show how they hate the idea of sharing their land to them.

This man was charged with felon hate crime after disrespecting a Muslim mosque in Florida.

For unrevealed reasons, a man named Michael Wolfe scorned a Florida mosque. According to reports, the 37-year-old vandalized the place of worship and left on its doorstep a slab of bacon, which is a forbidden food in the Islamic dietary laws. And as confirmed by Florida’s 18th Judicial District’s spokesman, Todd Brown, the offender has already been sentenced to 15 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to a hate crime last Tuesday. He explained:

“He entered a plea deal and plead guilty to vandalizing the mosque itself with hate crime enhancement, making it a felony. He waived his right to a pre-sentencing investigation.”

The offender was found to have vandalized a mosque and later left a slab of bacon in front of it.

The felon was caught on CCTV smashing windows, cameras, and lights of a mosque in Titusville, near Cape Canaveral with a machete knife. Later, he left some bacon in front of the mosque, which is a common way for hate groups in the U.S. to desecrate the building. The footage from January 2, 2016 was then released, but it took the court over a year to decide on what charges to press against Wolfe.

Wolfe was charged with felon hate crime and is bound to stay behind the bars for 15 years. He is also to spend 15 years in probation after release. The decision was reportedly agreed upon by the Islamic Society of Central Florida and Titusville police.

The Islamic Society of Central Florida and the police came up with the decision of locking Wolfe for 15 years and putting him on probation after release.

Apart from the hate crime, he was charged with, Wolfe was also charged with armed burglary during his arrest, but was subsequently dropped in court. This was reportedly due to the agreement made between the police and Wolfe to drop the armed burglary charge in exchange for his guilty plea. Furthermore, Wolfe confessed to the court that he was a habitual offender. Upon release for probation, he will not be allowed to go near the mosque.

The incident happened in a period where mosque vandalisms were rampant across the United States. Wolfe’s tactless acts then caused a wave of anti-Islamic sentiments that had Muslim advocacy groups concerned. There is a huge population of Muslims living in the country where 3.3 million are estimated to settle in the U.S., but their faith remains to be misunderstood.
