Searching for a Different Life
Born on May 13, 1977 into a Southern Baptist family, Scott Campbell’s age is 40. He spent his childhood in the bayous of New Orleans, Louisiana in a very conservative family. He wanted to look for something different than the life in his town. After graduating from Kingwood High School in 1995, he debated if he should lead a typical middle-class life or branch out into something he loved. He decided to study biochemistry at the University of Texas and planned a career as a medical illustrator. However, he soon dropped out of college and moved to San Francisco.
Stars Drop In
While still in his 20s, Campbell started working as a copy editor at the City Lights Bookstore. He was interested in the art of tattooing and traveled to Asia and Europe where he tattooed for cash, before moving to Williamsburg in 2001. By now, Campbell perfected the art of tattooing, and in 2005, opened his own tattoo shop called Saved Tattoo in New York. People loved his work and soon, celebrities were walking into his shop for him to tattoo them. Campbell’s first celebrity client was the late Heath Ledger who asked him to tattoo a small bird flying on his left forearm.
Achieving International Fame
Since then, Campbell exhibited his work both nationally and internationally. He worked with Louis Vuitton’s creative director Marc Jacobs to create some leather bags for men in their 2011 S/S collection. Campbell also did a lot of experimental work in visual arts and held exhibitions in several cities around the world. However, nothing makes him happier than spending time with his family. Scott Campbell’s family with Lake Bell includes their daughter Nova and newly born boy. Campbell met Bell on the set of her HBO show How to Make it in America in 2011.
