Sharing bad tattoos with renowned artist Scott Campbell

For one of the most famous tattoo artists in the world (his ink adorns the skin of Robert Downey Jr., Courtney Love, Orlando Bloom, Marc Jacobs and more), Scott Campbell’s studio - just a couple of blocks from L.A.’s Skid Row - is pretty humble.

An artwork based on a crumpled dollar bill hangs on the wall and a dope plant sits by the window overlooking the industrial landscape of L.A.’s Arts District. Tattooing may be exploding on Instagram and attracting more and more celebrities, but for Scott it remains a resolutely blue collar practice.
