You can find Dr. Woo putting needle to skin on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles at the venerable Shamrock Social Club. This is the place he came up in, under Mark Mahoney, which further cultivated the black and gray fine line style Woo was already interested in. In this Fellowship Tattoo Supply Co. episode Woo discusses what it’s all about for him, why he’s chosen the life of a tattoo artist: the actual scene in the shop and the wide range of people that come through the doors “…royalty and gangsters, it appeals to a wide range of people.” For Dr. Woo it’s the essence of tattooing, the history and culture of this “honorable craft” that he is so proud to be a part of. Then there’s the potential to develop his own style. “I don’t wanna be the best. I want people to look and say ‘that’s a piece by … ‘ if I do my best, and people like my style, cool. I don’t want to try and please everyone.”
