BROOKLYN - A young entrepreneur from Brooklyn has started a new business selling what he calls ?TattooIDs.?

Steven Gordan, 18, says the program provides customized temporary tattoos to parents for their kids. The tattoo consists of the child's initials and phone number, so they can be recovered quickly.

Gordan says he got the idea after babysitting his little brother.

Gordan has also been blowing away the competition in entrepreneur contests. He has won four contests this year and has collected more than $8,000 in rewards. He says he's been able to do all of it with the help of an outreach program called the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship.
