He’s been called “the most in demand tattooist in the world” and now legendary Los Angeles tattoo artist Dr. Woo (aka Brian Woo), will be visiting Australia for the first time ever, hosting a one-day residency in Sydney this weekend. With a full day of free tattoo appointments up for grabs at his pop-up parlour, fashion-forward Aussies can join an impressive list of Hollywood royalty to have been inked by Dr. Woo.
With a rumoured two-year long waitlist and 1.2 million followers on Instagram, Dr. Woo has an impressive star-studded client list, making him hot property. Miley Cyrus, Drake, Emilia Clarke, Cara Delevingne, Sarah Hyland, Frances Bean Cobain and Frank Ocean to name just a few sport his instantly recognisable style. He’s at the forefront of the L.A. black and grey movement, producing intricate fine-line and hyper real designs.
In recent years tattoos have become much more accepted within society with 30 percent of Generation Y’s (22-36 years old) now flaunting permanent body art. “We used to call the big visible tattoos ‘job stoppers’ but this is no longer the case. Tattoos are the new normal. You are almost square if you don’t have one.” said Dr. Woo.
If anybody is keen to get a tattoo from one of the world’s preeminent artists you can head down to Hunter and Fox Tattoo at 9am to register for the chance to receive one of the free appointments throughout the day.
