With 40 years of tattooing expertise and legendary status in the tattoo community, Don Ed Hardy is known as “the godfather of modern tattoo.” California native Don Ed Hardy is recognized around the world for his sophistication, depth and sense of experimentation as well as his technical brilliance and mesmerizing imagery. He seamlessly pulls from life experience to meld American, Japanese, Cholo, tattoo, surf and hotrod iconography. This broad spectrum of taste and experience, coupled with an ongoing investigation of various art histories and a mastery of technique, give his work a unique range and depth.
Perhaps that is what has made the legendary figure's designs successful. The Ed Hardy brand has become a must-have for nearly every demographic and his timeless designs have been attached to many different products. It's a fashion accessory, a designer label and a household name.
Mid-February, Chanel launched a line of temporary tattoos. These were first unveiled at the fall fashion shows. Women immediately submitted their pre-orders. The response to the Chanel brand as body art has been tremendous.
While many outside the fashion industry may see Chanel's temporary tattoo line as cutting-edge, the fact is that temporary tattoos as body art is not a new concept. Young women (and men) have been wearing Ed Hardy temporary tattoos for years. Ed Hardy designs (the same designs found on t-shirts, hand bags and caps) are available as temporary tattoos. Really, if you think about it, Ed Hardy temporary tattoos make a lot of sense; after all, these designs originated from real tattoos designs.
Ed Hardy tattoos can be found online and in retail. They can be purchased in singles or assortments. There are some fabulous designs to choose from (as any Ed Hardy enthusiast knows), making it simple to find a temporary tattoo for any occasion.
Body art is very trendy right now and Ed Hardy is a dominant fashion brand—the two go hand in hand.
