7 Tattoo Artists Responsible For Your Fav Celebs’ Ink
There are a few ways to go about picking a new tattoo artist. You can ask friends for recommendations, comb Instagram, or maybe, just maybe, you can google where Cara Delevingne gets her ink done and follow in her BACON-stamped footsteps.
If the last option is your style, we’ve put together a list of some of Hollywood’s favorite tattoo artists. Even if you aren’t the tattoo type, you’ll def want to add them to your Instagram feed. You never know when Kylie Jenner will pop up.
Originally made famous by Kendall Jenner’s small white dot on the inside of her finger, JonBoy works out of West4Tattoo in the West Village.

Other famous clients include Justine Skye, Chloe Grace Moretz, Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber.
2. Dr. Woo
One of Mark Mahoney’s proteges and now popular artist at the Shamrock Social Club, Dr. Woo creates some of the most intricate, 3D geometric looking tattoos that appear to almost stand off the skin.
