Reviews

"Further proof that art is where you find it. Don Ed Hardy had this insight and followed through on it. Though some of his work is now shown in galleries and museums his choice to pursue an artform that, at the time, was decidedly and defiantly alternative lead him down a path that is is both beautiful and hair raising (I wouldn't want to make a mistake tattooing Yakuza in Japan!). The result is a page turner of an art book - and there aren't many of those!"
--David Byrne, founding member of Talking Heads
"Ed Hardy, along with Sailor Jerry and others, is one of the earliest artists responsible for making the American traditional style, timeless yet modern, with designs that hearken to past eras while punctuating current eras. His art speaks to a vast array of generations. Gaps that once were divided are now unified as a result of his work... More than can be said for any politician or political party. One of the marks of a great artist is creating a body of work that speaks to multiple genres and will continue to do so for years to come."
--Dave Navarro, guitarist for Jane's Addiction and Red Hot Chili Peppers
""Wear Your Dreams" gives the reader great insight into the life of tattoo artist Ed Hardy. His unyielding spirit and dedication to the art form is very evident. I couldn't put this book down once I started reading it! A truly great American success story that shouldn't be missed!"
--Ace Frehley, lead guitarist of KISS and author of "No Regrets"

"Tattoo visionary Hardy has produced an engrossing memoir that serves as both a colorful guide to the history of the tattoo revival and a window on the life of an ambitious, blue-collar artist...a thoughtful narrator...He paints vivid thumbnails of characters like Sailor Jerry and Christian Audigier...Hardy has no shortage of anecdotes and he's not shy about copping to his mistakes...he never loses his genial tone. Tattoo couldn't have a better spokesperson."
