How did you get into the skincare industry? In a world where there are so many options; in your opinion, what do you think sets you aside from other skincare lines?
Being a tattoo artist, I’ve always been in close proximity to skin and that has let me to wonder how else can I create ways to better "own" your skin. I started with decorating it with emotional connections, and now creating a way that we can nourish and hydrate our skin to keep it at its optimal performance. We’re just trying to bring the unique perspective to what we need and value most out of skin care- clean simple ingredients, thoughtfully curated along with a perspective that celebrates the power of being who you are.
This may be hard to answer but as a world renowned tattoo artist, do you have a favorite tattooing experience? What has been your favorite design that you’ve done to date?
It’s hard to pinpoint one exact moment but I do remember the first time I did a tattoo out of the country and traveling. And the feeling of being able to see the world through my work is an unforgettable moment that I won’t ever forget
Can you tell us a bit more about where the name Dr. Woo came from?
Every tattooer in the shop I came from had a tattooers nickname, it was kind of like a right of passage, Mine ended up being Dr. Woo I think for a lot of them it just Sounded like it was a perfect fit and later on when I honed my craft and I paid my dues, it made more sense
You are a father! Tell us a little about that and how that fits into your busy renaissance entrepreneur life?
Everything I do comes second to being a dad. The fun part about doing any of this is managing and balancing a busy work life so that I can give my family the best life
We’d love your tips for the best Goody gift picks from Dr. Woo?
Keeping it simple for this answer- Surprise gifts are always the best!
What’s next for Dr. Woo?
Just furthering the depths and growth of Woo Essentials, my art projects, including some projects in the nft space and hopefully traveling again to spread the love globally.
