15 People in London Stuck Their Arm Through a Hole and Got a Mystery Tattoo (but I'm calling bullshit)
SEENINTHECITY - Which is why some controversy is surrounding tattoo artist Scott Campbell who has recently touched down in London and is re-staging his popular ‘Whole Glory’ installation in Covent Garden. After holding a successfully similar event in New York, Campbell is hoping his idea of inking strangers via a hole in the wall where they have no idea or communication about what they will be inked with will be just as popular in the UK as in the big apple.
This is the best marketing stunt by a tattoo artist ever. It's such a great headline. Mystery tattoos!?!? Oh my! In reality these people are taking zero risk. Absolutely zero risk. This dude Scott Campbell is a known tattoo artist. His clientele includes a bunch of famous celebrities and he has over 100k followers on Instagram. So the question really isn't 'would you stick your arm through a hole in the wall and receive a mystery tattoo' but more 'hey do you want a free tattoo from your favorite artist?'. And that is a super easy question.
It's basically like asking me if I am going to enjoy Bruce Springsteen's next album. Or if I would throw down a ton of money at a Norman Rockwell auction not knowing which picture I'm going to get. Doesn't fucking matter. I love every song Bruce Springsteen has recorded and I love every painting Norm has painted. If you bet me a million dollars that I will be rooting for the Yankees in thirty years I would raise it to two million. Doesn't matter that I have no idea who the players will be then. I like the Yankees.
What this experiment really should have been was selecting 15 random people to receive a tattoo and 15 random people to give a tattoo. Now that would be a risk! Or maybe you make it a chain. The first person to receive a tattoo then turns around and gives the next person one. "Why'd you write 'fuck' on my arm?" "Don't blame me the person I had drew a dick on mine!" That would be a great test for society. If the first person starts it off with a bad tattoo would everyone after get a bad tattoo out of spite?
As for the tattoos these people got here they are. Some are okay... I guess. I think Scott Campbell's style is intricate flowers and birds and then bold and bad skulls. One complex item and then one child drawn item. If I got the second picture in this slide show I'd be pissed, fan of Campbell or not.
I like the Yankees, watching TV shows and talking about stuff.
