Field Recordings #2: Scoot Mason

Visiting him at his Toronto studio, Paul talks to well-known and accomplished tattoo artist, Scoot Mason, about his humble beginnings, as well as what keeps him going in the competitive world of tattooing. Known for his impressive monotone creations, not to mention being a tattooist to numerous celebrities (including Johnny Depp who requested a private session with him), Scoot views his work as much more than a service.

Similar to recent podcast guest, London Slade, tattooing for Scoot is a genuine sharing of the artist’s soul, never simply what is pleasing to the eye. His work represents what both he and the person tattooed believes in, on a personal and perhaps even spiritual level. In Scoot’s studio, there might be the pain of the needle–but there is no selling out.
