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.
SMILING IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH
New research finds that smiling has many health benefits for the body and mind. Researchers say smiling can slow down the heart and reduce stress, and even just the act of smiling can make a person feel happier. A recent study found that people who smiled after engaging in stress-inducing tasks showed a greater reduction in heart rate than those who maintained a neutral facial expression. Study co-author Sarah Pressman with the University of California, Irvine, says that the muscle activity invovled in a smile sends a message to the brain that the body feels safe, which could translate into a lower heart rate and stress levels.
