Scott Campbell is a celebrity tattoo artist from New York City. The man seved as best man at Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston’s wedding. He’s married to actress Lake Bell and the 38-year-old artist dreamed up Whole Glory. A tattoo version of the Glory Hole. You walk up to the whole, insert your arm and viola… BRANDED!
Now that is trust. The stunt is an art installation going on right now in Manhattan at the Milk Gallery.
The New York Times describes the scene; “The installation includes a 50-foot-long painting by him, at the center of which is a small hole, about four feet off the ground, with a chair in front of it. Members of the public who so dare are invited to seat themselves in the chair for up to 90 minutes, their bare arm through the hole, while from the other side of the wall, Mr. Campbell tattoos on them whatever rendering he sees fit, knowing nothing about the subjects — even what they look like — and with zero input from them.”
