Scott Campbell’s new book, If You Don’t Belong, Don’t Be Long – out this month -is a beautifully compiled image collection geared at appealing to art and tattoo fans alike. It offers a refreshing insight into various aspects of the Brooklyn-based artist’s creative world.
The book not only re-affirms his skill and importance as a tattoo artist, but illustrates how his tattoos have led him to develop his art into other mediums such as paper, holograms and sculptures.
