Celeb tattoo artist Dr. Woo reveals ‘honour’ tattooing Billie Lourd

Dr. Woo is the go-to guy for all celebrity tattoos having inked-up the likes of Miley Cyrus, Drake, Emilia Clarke and Bella Hadid.

One celebrity who recently gave the renowned tattoo artist a visit was Billie Lourd, daughter of the late Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher.

The 25-year-old paid tribute to her later mother on what would have been her 61st birthday with a tattoo on her ankle of the stars, moon and planet Saturn, very similar to one Carrie had.

Dr. Woo – real name Brian Woo – revealed exclusively to Be it was an “honour” to tattoo the young actress.

“It’s always a great honour,” he told Be. “It’s something very special to these people and I think to be included in such a pivotal moment, it’s a very special thing. It’s an honour for me.”

“I’m very humbled to be able to do that,” he added.

While he remained tight-lipped on what conversation is like with his A-list clientele he did say that everyone he has tattooed have always been “really sweet”.

“Everyone – Drake, Miley – they’re all very sweet people, very kind and very intellectual. We have some good conversations,” Dr. Woo told Be.

While many may associate the city of Los Angeles home to the who’s who of Hollywood Dr. Woo revealed there is so much more to the city than meets the eye.

“It’s a melting pot city,” he said. “We have a million cultures all hugged up into one place. There’s so many different things to see.”

“Creatively, so many artists are working out of here now. It’s got everything,” Dr. Woo added. “It’s got the entertainment business, the arts, the culture, different neighbourhoods, the beach. Pretty much everything you want is here.”

The 36-year-old tattoo artist has arguably become a star in his own right boasting over 1.2 million Instagram followers from all around the world, particularly Australia.

Which is why many fans of the artist will be excited to hear Dr. Woo is heading to Sydney, in partnership with Discover Los Angeles, and it could be the chance to be tattooed by “the most in demand tattooist in the world”.

On Saturday 18th November, Dr. Woo will be in Sydney giving away free tattoo appointments at his pop-up parlour.

“I think it’s a great honour to represent my city and share it with other places,” Dr. Woo told Be when speaking about the upcoming pop-up shop. “I have a lot of requests from Australian fans and I’ve never been to Australia so, what better time than now?”

Registration for the pop-up parlour takes place from 9am on 18th November at the Hunter and Fox Tattoo in Beaconsfield, Sydney and winners will be announced at 10am following a lottery draw.
