About Scott Campbell

Louisiana-born Scott Campbell is famous for having some of the most talented hands in the world of tattoo. After abandoning a career as a biochemist at the University of Texas, he moved to San Francisco in pursuit of inspiration. After his first semi-successful attempts tattooing teenagers, he joined Picture Machine, one of the oldest shops in California.

Since then heʼs travelled the world, tattooing people all across Europe, Asia, and the Americas, and eventually settled in New York. Scott now owns and operates the legendary Saved Tattoo in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. A studio which has linked New Yorkʼs art and design elite, fashion designers such as Marc Jacobs, and a long roster of celebrities.

In recent years, Campbell has gained much acclaim from fine art communities worldwide for his work mediums other than skin, including intricately carved sculptures made out of stacks of real US currency, a series of watercolor paintings based on his experiences in tattooing inmates in a maximum security prison in Mexico City, and incredibly intricate graphite drawings done on the insides of eggshells. Campbell has only shown in galleries for a few years, but his work has already seen in some of the most revered collections and museums worldwide. He is celebrated as on the other brightest new voices in the New York art scene.
