United States, (PressExposure) February 19, 2009 -- Ed Hardy is one of America's finest when it comes to tattoo artistry. Other than his mentor, Sailor Jerry, Ed Hardy became the most successful tattoo artist recognized for incorporating Japanese tattoo aesthetic and technique in his work. And through his work, Ed Hardy became globally recognized all over the world.
But other than his work, Ed Hardy is also known for publishing several books including Tattootime. It was in 1981 that he and his wife formed Hardy Marks Publications in which they begun publishing the five book series Tattootime.

Other than Tattootime, Ed Hardy also published other publications including Modern Primitives (ReSearch Publications, San Francisco) and Body Art. Hardy Marks publications include catalogs of Hardy's work and that of Sailor Jerry Collins, as well as other alternative art subjects.
Today Hardy is retired from doing actual tattoos, but oversees and mentors the artists at his San Francisco studio, Tattoo City. Since the 1980s, he has concentrated heavily on non-tattoo based art forms, especially printmaking, drawing, painting and designing clothing.
