Ed Hardy: Tattoo the World Documentary
08:16 PM


Before the bedazzled tees (courtesy of Christian Audigier), Don Ed Hardy was best known for being one of the first American tattooists to raise the craft to a fine art. It's amazing to me how many people pay for pricey goods with the man's name across their chests and yet have no idea who he is.

Exactly who is Ed Hardy -- the artist, not the brand -- is the focus of a film by Emiko Omori entitled Ed Hardy: Tattoo The World, a preview of which is shown above. [Omori is also co-director of the 2003 documentary Skin Stories on Polynesian tattooing.]

Ed Hardy: Tattoo the World will be screened this
Saturday, October 24th at 10:30 PM at the Hawaii International Film Fest.
