Don Ed Hardy is a world famous tattoo artist and considered by many to be the Godfather of Tattoo. A surfer at heart, he started his career as a tattoo artist in the early 1960's after graduating from the San Francisco Art Institute.

As one of the first outsiders to gain access to the closed world of Japanese tattoo, Hardy worked in Japan throughout the 1980's. Today, Don Ed Hardy continues to mentor artists in his San Francisco studio, and has expanded his artistry into multiple mediums including a vast collection of fine art and a publishing company, which has released over two dozen books based entirely on his artwork.
