At the 2013 Bay Area Convention of the Tattoo Arts Don Ed Hardy was given the opportunity to do an hour long seminar on any subject matter of his choosing. He decided upon a piece of tattoo history that has always fascinated him, the black panther tattoo. Horitaka and the crew at State of Grace filmed the lecture, and we present it here for everyone’s viewing pleasure.

Curated by Fred Stonehouse–This exhibition will bring together the work of a diverse group of artists, linked primarily by the fact (other than the common subject matter) that I know them all. Large scale pieces from the renowned tattooer Don Ed Hardy, the exquisite hand-colored etchings of Briony Morrow Cribbs, the boldly graphic paintings of New York tattooist Bert Krak and the Japanese inflected works of Milwaukee’s own Jon Reiter will all be part of the mix.
