Marc Jacobs' cartoon tatts are tougher than you... 

Supertouch's own SCOTT CAMPBELL is one of the world's foremost tattoo and graphic artists whose shop, SAVED TATTOO, also doubles as a clubhouse for Manhattan's A-list artists, hipsters, and prime movers, and makeshift art gallery for periodic shows featuring work by the city's brightest young art stars. The exclusive inker of fashion genius MARC JACOBS, Scottie C has branded the designer with all of his permanent icons including cartoons like Spongebob, an M&Ms character, a Simpsons version of himself, Eric Cartman from Southpark's stuffed animals, his pet bull terriers, a couch on his hip, the word "Shameless" on his chest, two renditions of the logo for porn mag Oui, and an epic forearm tattoo that reads "Bros Before Hos" that is also shared by Campbell and a small circle of friends. Collaborating recently with photographer friend TERRY RICHARDSON, some of Campbell's A-list clients including Jacobs, and actors LEO FITZPATRICK and LILLY COLE posed for a series of iconic tattoo portraits in TR's trademark style.
