The line has been drawn in the ink.

A tattoo artist has come under fire after posting a video showing herself giving a baby a tattoo.

Ayala Bratt — who has been a pro artist for the past three years — came under fire for giving a toddler a tattoo, so they could match their mother and father.

The video, which has gained nearly 26 million views as of Monday, shows Bratt giving the tiny tot what turns out to be a stencil tattoo while the baby’s father clicks his fingers to distract the child.

“I think opening kids up to the world of tattoos is completely OK,” said 22-year-old Bratt.

“It’s just art, and it’s a way to express yourself,” she added. “It’s not just something that is related to gangsters.”

The Post reached out to Bratt for comment.

The stencil tattoo — which is not permanent — confused many viewers, causing them to leave negative comments condemning the tattoo artist.

“Hell nah I would never do that,” said one user.

“Are they FR por baby,” another said.

“You can’t tattoo a child under 18 years old! And worse, he is an infant,” chimed in a third.

“I hope it’s a joke?” another viewer commented.

Other users rushed to the artist’s defense, saying that the sun-and-moon stencil was not permanent.

“This is what they do to my baby when we get tattooed, and it makes her very happy,” wrote one user.

“I think we should open kids’ world to see that tattoos are OK, as it’s art and a way to express yourself.”
Several TikTok users defended the artist saying the tattoo was not real.

“Do people actually think they tattooed a baby?” asked another.

“No one understood this. It’s legit a trend, they only stick the stencil,” someone else said.

Bratt took the negative comments that she received and attempted to explain how children can have a positive experience from learning about tattoos.

“After sharing my videos on TikTok, there was a mixed reaction,” said Bratt.

“A lot of it was hate but some were funny.”
