People are sticking their arm in a hole and getting mystery tattoos as part of an installation by celebrity tattoo artist Scott Campbell. Campbell, a 38-year-old NYC-based inker, has tatted people as famous as Heath Ledger, Penelope Cruz, and Robert Downey Jr. For his latest project, an "installation and performance" titled "Whole Glory," Campbell has strangers sticking their hand through a hole in a fence while he tattoos them.

This past Thursday through Sunday, the artist @scampbell333 gave 23 people mystery tattoos through a hole in a wall, without meeting or communicating with them, for his #wholeglory project. T's own @a_symonds was one of them; here he is working on her arm. Photo by @amylombard.
