His dad wanted him to become a doctor, but instead he became the coolest geometric tattoo artist, by discovering his passion for ink at the early age of 13.
This is the story of tattoo artist Brian Woo that managed to overcome his dad’s ambitions and followed his passion for tattoos and geometry, becoming one of the greatest tattoo artist of the modern era.
Shortly after he started tattooing at the age of 13, he began his apprenticeship at Shamrock Social Club in Los Angeles, where international stars like Sex Pistol, 2Pac Shakur and Johnny Depp have been tattooed over the years. Shamrock Social Club from LA is so exclusive, that they even have waiting lists for periods longer than a year.
Dr. Woo, as Brian Woo calls himself, describes his technique as being a fine line between black and grey and the tattoo that got him his international fame is “a wolf made up of my constellations – the first time I used my signature circles and lines to create an image.”, as he declared for My Modern Met.
