The New York Times has dubbed tattooist Brian Woo (A.K.A. Dr. Woo) the “Tattoo Artist for the Hollywood Set.” He’s stuck his needle in loads of famous flesh including Drake, Ellie Goulding, and Cara Delevingne (see “Poetic License and the House of Chanel“), and his waiting list at the famous L.A. tattoo joint, Shamrock Social Club, is many months long. His single-needle, fine-line style is captivating Hollywood, and he’s got me sold, too.
I’ve written about other tattoo artists, but this guy’s work is so pure and timeless, he might have stolen first place in my heart. I got lost for hours in his Instagram account, and for good reason. His creativity knows no bounds. His beautiful illustrations remind me a bit of Victorian etchings, and his style suits me right down to the ground. I would be willing to fly to L.A. just to get one of his pieces (and I’m not L.A.’s biggest fan).
I hope you enjoy his lovely work as much as I have.
