> DESCRIPTION

The documentary "Ed Hardy: Tattoo the World" traces an artist’s journey across styles and cultures. After graduating from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1967 with plans for a career in the fine arts, Hardy veered off course into the seamy world of drunken sailors and fallen women to pursue his childhood obsession: tattooing. With his fine art training and vast knowledge of art history and the cultures of Asia, Polynesia, and Mexico, he refined and reinvigorated tattoo imagery. In 2004, a clothing designer spotted Hardy’s images and the Ed Hardy brand was born, giving the onetime cult figure a phenomenal influence on pop culture.

Director Emiko Omori and Ed Hardy will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.
