It only takes a quick browse through Dr. Woo’s Instagram page to realise why his work has earned him the title of the world’s most in-demand tattooist and over a million followers.
With his masterful inking skills having already graced the skin of celebrities like Drake, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Cara Delevingne and Frank Ocean, Dr. Woo will finally be bringing his unique aesthetic and artistic flair to Sydney for one day only – and it will be free for the lucky few chosen for hime to work his magic on.
As part of the Discover Los Angeles campaign, Dr. Woo will be visiting Australia for the first time ever to host a one day residency in Sydney on the 18th of November. This rare opportunity will see free tattoo appointments up for grabs, a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get inked by one of the world’s best with a rumoured waiting list of two years.
Dr. [Brian] Woo has already drawn similarities between the outdoor scene of Sydney and L.A and says he’s excited to leave his mark on local soil.
“We used to call the big visible tattoos ‘job stoppers’ but this is no longer the case,” says Woo. “Tattoos are the new normal. You are almost square if you don’t have one. Australia has a similar outdoors lifestyle, so I’m not surprised to hear that tattoos are so warmly embraced, just like in Los Angeles. I’ve never been to Australia before so I’m looking forward to checking out the local scene and leaving behind some of my designs.”
The backstory of Woo’s career is an interesting one in itself which is worth noting. After a decade spent honing his craft at Shamrock Social Club on Sunset Strip, Dr. Woo moved onto opening his own private shop titled HIDEAWAY at Suite X.
This exclusive space is holed up in the iconic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Once home to Marilyn Monroe, the landmark hotel provides the artist with a secluded and discreet space, where he can service his appointment-only clients in total privacy. Such is the privacy of Woo’s work that his studio’s location is only revealed once a long sought-after appointment has been confirmed.
