Ed Hardy is an icon, the “Godfather of the modern tattoo.” Since the young age of 10 years old, Ed Hardy recognized the energy and beauty of tattoo art. He incorporated a Japanese tattoo aesthetic, mixed in his vibrant Southern Californian perspective, and dominated a historical craft that in turn praised, demanded, and popularized his tattoo mastery.
Today, (July 9, 2009) at the SFMOMA, Ed Hardy will be signing copies of his new book “Ed Hardy: Art for Life” in The Schwab Room starting at 6:30 pm.
Free and open to the public.
Books are available for purchase in the SFMOMA Museum Store.
