Whole Glory

Scott Campbell
Free // Enter the raffle in-person at FODI
Sun 18 September 3:00pm
No consultation and it’s permanent. Would you get a tattoo by putting your limb in a hole in the wall and letting the artist do what they want?

LA’s live action celebrity tattoo artist provocateur Scott Campbell is coming to Sydney and he’s asking you to simply trust him. He will ink you, for free, but…  without meeting, looking or talking to you at all. He will simply do what he wants on you and leave his mark. Will you stick your limb into the Whole Glory? 

A permanent memento from a celebrated international tattooist and a great tale awaits those brave enough to bare their flesh. Spots are limited and for FODI ticket holders only. Show up, throw your name in the barrel and if it’s picked, sit down and submit… 


This is an exclusive offer for FODI22 ticket holders. Carefully read the instructions below.

It’s a chance for people to not take their physical selves so seriously, and take part in an exchange of faith that will literally change who they are for the rest of their life.

Scott Campbell

Scott Campbell is known throughout the world as being one of the most talented hands in the world of tattooing. Having received worldwide recognition by major museums and galleries for his sculpture, drawings, and paintings, he has helped shift the public perspective of tattooing over the years from an underground craft to a true fine art. He has explored the ceremony of tattooing by working in prisons in Mexico and Germany, tattooing soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq, and his artwork can be found carved into the skin of both Hollywood royalty and actual royalty.
