Ok, so I had no idea Ed Hardy was a real person. I thought the name was something Christina Aguilera marketers had come up with. Wrong. I have no tattoos something which is strange for someone in San francisco. Ed hardy is an artist. His drawings are amaizing. He now does etchings which I wish I could own. Hardy is someone who is very clear knows what he wants. I really admire this quality. Here is the article. The other guy in the photo is his son also a tattoo artist.
