A Tattoo Artist for the Hollywood Set

You may have to wait for as long as six months to get your skin inked by Dr. Woo. Brian Woo, that’s his real name. He is one of tattoo artists who is the most wanted by many living in the US especially in Los Angeles, now he has a very long wait list of clients who are willing to wait to get their turns.


As written in The New York Times in December, Dr Woo, now 33 years old, is a tattoo artist for the Hollywood set, since he has inked many celebrities like Cara Delevigne, Ellie Goulding and Drake. Because of his signature style of intricate, fine-line and single-needle style pieces, many young and old have fallen in love with his monochromatic-geometric kind of tattoos.


When Woo was just 13 years old, he and his friends did an experiment with “stick and poking” their legs after school. As he remembered, “I think that the idea of doing something so permanent without thinking about its future consequence gave us a rush.”


Then he took a job as a fashion buyer and designer, but soon after that he did an apprentice job to Mr. Mark Mohoney at LA’s Shamrock Social Club. It’s a Hollywood’s tattoo studio where many of the elite and the underground usually meet.
