Having moved to New York in 2001, Scott Campbell founded his own tattoo parlor “Saved Tattoo” in 2005, with the ambition to create a new space honouring the true art and rituals of tattooing. He is also one of the brightest new voices in contemporary art, with ground-breaking works featured in some of the most cutting-edge galleries in New York, Los Angeles, Singapore and Tokyo.
This versatility, along with the unique attention to detail Scott Campbell dedicates to his tattooing is what prompted Hennessy to invite the artist to create his own Hennessy Very Special Limited Edition design.
Scott Campbell wanted to blaze a trail that would be unique to his own trade: “I treated the Hennessy Very Special bottle like I would treat somebody’s arm: I put tracing paper over it, and started drawing!”. Needless to say, this was an entirely new approach to label design.
