Scott Campbell: Tattoos and Money

Scott Campbell: Tattoos and Money

“Scott Campbell is a sort of semiotician, studying the signs, symbols, and text, commonly found in tattoo culture. His work investigates a familiar lowbrow vernacular, and points out the irony existing within that imagery. His precise technique and masterly of his particular style is only matched in strength by his concern for the human condition. Through the act of chronicling working-class iconography, customarily inked onto skin, Campbell creates a new narrative for the consideration of those recognizable images. He pays tribute to individual stories, and as a result, he records a specific history, which in turn becomes a collective one.” — OH WOW
