His intricately drawn, delicate single-needle masterpieces are reflected in the details of his tattoo parlor, the elegantly designed “Hideaway at Suite X,” which is located at Hollywood’s Roosevelt Hotel. The space is a secluded layer hidden behind bamboo trees and a wooden door, where Brian Woo aka Dr. Woo, the tattoo artist who has a yearlong waiting list, stares at an oversized map of L.A. and Tokyo. He’s wearing a fitted St. Laurent leather jacket and bespoke hat. He’s fashionable, chic, and looks like an artist who has mastered every inch of his aesthetic.
Dr. Woo selected PINKYS to redesign the steel windows and doors at Hideaway at Suite X. Our precise, hand-forged steel, with a black finish, provides a sleek juxtaposition to the detailed, handmade antiques that cover the space: a Westin Mitchell-designed coffee table covered with old books; a luxurious Chesterfield chair; a wooden dartboard, and a retired motorcycle i.e., “chopper.” Part of its allure comes from the fact that very few people are ever allowed to enter Hideaway at Suite X. It is by appointment only, hidden from the public, and while Dr. Woo has 1.7 million followers on Instagram, he rarely posts photos that reveal the various details and tchotchkes decorating his exclusive hideaway.
Dr. Woo’s client list is gleaming with star power and prestige. It includes such names as Miley Cyrus, Emilia Clarke, Hailey Baldwin, Drake, Justin Bieber, Frances Bean Cobain, and Zoë Kravitz. He may be the most in-demand tattoo artist in the world and he chose us. PINKYS worked with Dr. Woo to bring his vision to life. Every inch of our hand-forged steel was designed to fit his unique needs. PINKYS is forever honored to be able to include our designs in Hideaway at Suite X, which is more than a mere tattoo parlor—it is private clubhouse for the world’s most beautiful, decadent, famous, and mysterious clientele.
Dr. Woo’s work has been featured in the LA Times, GQ, Vanity Fair, W, The Wall Street Journal, and V Magazine (just to name a few).
