LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — 5-year-old Cleveland native Maja, who suffers from lymphoblastic leukemia, was able to live her dream of being a tattoo artist with the help of "A Special Wish" Cleveland Chapter.

The folks at Voodoo Monkey Tattoo saw the application her mother had filled out, explaining how she wanted to be a tattoo artist, and knew they just had to bring the little girl in for a one day apprenticeship.

They first took her to an award winning taco restaurant and then to the tattoo parlor where she was even able to practice with a needle on a grapefruit.
