LA’S HOTTEST INKER POPS UP

Grazia (UK) - - 10 Hot Stories -

FROM ADELE’S ‘A’ tat­too for son An­gelo through to Ri­hanna’s Ne­fer­titi head and Lady Gaga’s Bowie trib­ute, there’s only one tat­too artist the A-list trust to ink their skin: Mark Ma­honey.

He’s rev­o­lu­tionised tat­too­ing with a fine-line style in black and grey ink that cre­ates a hy­per­re­al­is­tic im­age. Nat­u­rally, the world’s sec­ond most pop­u­lar tatt artist, Dr Woo – whose clients in­clude Cara D, Drake and Mi­ley Cyrus – was trained by Mark.

Un­til now, any of us nor­mal folk lust­ing af­ter a ‘sin­gle-nee­dle’ Ma­honey tat­too would have to fork out the air­fare to LA – where his leg­endary Sham­rock So­cial Club is based. Even then, there’s a wait­ing list un­til 2019. Luck­ily, from 5-16 Oc­to­ber, Mark is bring­ing his skills to the UK as artist in res­i­dence at Lon­don’s Man­drake Ho­tel. Prices start at £2,000. Who needs sav­ings, any­way?
