People Put Their Arms In A Hole, Letting This Tattoo Artist Ink Whatever He Wants

Scott Campbell, a well-known tattoo artist based in the Williamsburg part of Brooklyn, New York, has created the ultimate test of trust in his work: he offers free tattoos to people as long as he gets to choose the design and not show it to them until it’s done. The name of his project, playing on everyone’s favorite truck-stop delight, is “Whole Glory.”

The trust these people place in him when they stick their hands through the wall for a free tattoo isn’t unfounded – Campbell has tattooed celebs like Marc Jacobs, Orlando Bloom and Penelope Cruz. Nonetheless, he does thank each person for their trust in him and his art. What do you think of the work he did?

Sorry for saying this but what if the tattoo artist draws something they don't like? Are they really taking a risk because it is free?

This kind of thing is self selecting. Meaning only people that are excited by the mystery, who want to have a story to tell (good or bad) would actually do it. Being free is a perk, but it's not the primary motivating reason. Most people could scrounge up enough change to get a butterfly, or something that they would be neutral enough for them and most to be happy about. This is something more.

Some of those were cool. Not all of them tho. I'd be upset with a rose going thru an eye. Or even a rose period.

Seriously, the skull was great on its own, the character on top ruined it.
