By //

Hailed by The New York Times as one of the most in-demand tattooist in the world, Dr. Woo gives us a rare look at a day in his life. Although he has catapulted into the forefront of popular culture with the help of over 300,000 followers on Instagram, along with a loyal clientele that waits months on end to get an appointment, Dr. Woo remains extremely humble.

We’ve taken a look at Dr. Woo’s essentials in a previous video. Now, the intricately detailed tattooist discusses how the birth of his son, Lyon, changed his priorities - shifting his career onto a planned trajectory - and pays homage to his mentor Mark Mahoney for teaching him the quintessential values to uphold as an artist and a father. Dr. Woo continues to master his fine handiwork at Shamrock Social Club in Hollywood, California. Watch the video above to learn about his familial ties and get inspired by his unique outlook in an extremely competitive industry.
