Samantha Scott (née Neaveill) was born in Bellflower, California but spent the majority of her life in the Midwest. She remembers drawing ever since she was old enough to hold a pencil, and has always loved all forms of art. After graduating from Edwards County High School in Albion, Illinois, she moved here to Evansville where she almost immediately fell in love with the art of tattooing and decided to seek out an apprenticeship.
In 2009, she was taken under the wing of Joshua Sutton at Earthborne Studios. In 2011, she followed Josh to Evansville's west side to form The Sutton Tattoo Company. That is not only the place where Samantha established herself as one of the city's friendliest tattooers, but also where she was introduced to her husband and frequent artistic collaborator, Jarred.
Custom lettering tattoos are her specialty, but she enjoys every style of tattooing. Her favorite thing about tattooing is to be able to make her clients happy by bringing their ideas to life. With the creation of Crooked Tree, Samantha is now looking forward to further developing herself as an artist, traveling to more tattoo conventions, and spending as much time as possible with her family.
When she is not tattooing, Samantha enjoys taking naps, discovering interesting factoids, eating delicious food, and going to flea markets.
