Tattoo artists nowadays are some of the most interesting, creative and introspective individuals in the creative industry, and the Scott Campbell Prison Tattoo video is proof of this newfound reputation that the once misunderstood artists held.
Director Casey Neistat filmed the Scott Campbell Prison Tattoo clip, in which he follows the artist around looking for equipment to make a homemade tattoo gun. As they scour the streets, Campbell talks about how he got started in the industry, what tattoos mean to him and the lifestyle that he's gotten out of the career. The artist then proceeds to meet up with a friend to give him an original piece with the custom-made machine that he constructed at a park. With a 9V battery, a pen, masking tape and a small motor, Campbell ends up creating a pretty impressive typographic piece.
