It's adorable when kids show a knack for their parents' careers at a young age. Young Chloe Bellomo might just grow up to join the family business of tattoo art. At the tender age of 4, she inked her first tattoo, a strawberry, on her dad's arm: a Take Your Daughter to Work Day memory that will literally last forever.

Brad Bellomo owns 3rd Eye Tattoo in Largo, Florida. Her daughter was inspired by the ceiling art in the parlor. Her artistic pursuits didn't begin on skin: "She had come in here a few times, watched other artists and myself doing the art on the ceiling there and she said, 'I want to do one.'

The Facebook post has over 119,000 likes and 14,000 shares. As per usual, commenters were excited to judge Brad's parenting. One person commented "Child abuse," another reported it to Facebook for "graphic violence," but most people are just jealous that their kids can't be trusted with a needle.
