Geometric Fine Line Tattoos by LA’s Famous Dr. Woo

This past December, The New York Times ran a story about Brian Woo (aka Dr. Woo), calling him the “Tattoo Artist for the Hollywood Set.” Having inked such celebrities as Drake, Ellie Goulding, and Cara Delevingne, the 33-year-old is one of the most in-demand tattoo artists in Los Angeles with a wait list that’s six months long. Young and old have fallen in love with his signature style of intricate, fine-line, single-needle style pieces. With an Instagram following that now stands at 454,000, he’s also followed by a legion of online fans who watch his every move.

Woo started off by dabbling in tattoos when he was just 13 or 14 years old. He and his friend would experiment with “stick-and-poking” their legs after school. "I think that the idea of doing something so permanent without thinking about its future consequence gave us a rush," he said. He later worked as a fashion buyer and designer before getting a job as an apprentice to Mr. Mark Mahoney at LA’s Shamrock Social Club, Hollywood’s tattoo studio where the elite and the underground meet. He’s now one of Shamrock’s most popular tattoo artists.

One of Dr. Woo’s favorite tattoos is the one that helped propel him to fame. "A wolf made up of my constellations – the first time I used my signature circles and lines to create an image,” he states (see immediately below).

Below you’ll find examples of Woo’s geometric-style tattoos along with other artistic ones that we couldn’t help but fall in love with.

Adventurous Photographer Treks to Remote Buddhist Village Before It Disappears

If you’re unfamiliar with Larung Gar, it may be because the small, remote town located in a far-flung corner of China has largely stayed out of the tourism spotlight. It is, however, a cultural and historical Tibetan treasure that has been undergoing tremendous changes in the past few decades, particularly in the midst of global controversy between Tibet and China.
