Ed Hardy with Joel Selvin

The name “Ed Hardy” is emblazoned on everything from t-shirts and hats to perfumes and energy drinks, and his creative cross-and-bones designs and ribbon banners can be seen everywhere from L.A. to Japan, generating over $700 million in annual retail sales. But long before the fashion world discovered his iconic designs, the man behind the brand spearheaded a cultural revolution. In Wear Your Dreams, Ed Hardy recounts his colorful career as a tattoo artist and as a leader in the movement to recognize tattooing as a rich and valid art form.
