    Honolulu Museum T-shirt


    Don Ed Hardy T-shirt + book signing


    July 14, 2012 11:00am-02:00pm


    Honolulu Museum of Art Shop

    Event Information:

    As part of the exhibition Tattoo Honolulu, the museum has created a limited-edition T-shirt featuring Don Ed Hardy’s design Stay Free. It goes on sale in the museum shop on June 14. It is available in men’s and women’s sizes small to extra large ($35).

    Hardy created the original artwork in July 2011 for a special insert with the DVD of the documentary Ed Hardy: Tattoo the World. Stay Free is in the tradition of decades of classic eagle tattoo images created by Ed Hardy. The Japanese-style waves are a signature element of his design style, developed in the late 1960s, which influenced tattoo artists globally. The ribbon is also very classic tattoo, with a sentiment adapted from a 1978 Clash song.

    On July 14, Hardy will be at the shop signing books and T-shirts—come by and get one! Once they’re gone—they’re gone forever.

    The books he will be signing are from his publishing house Hardy Marks Publications: Bull’s Eyes & Black Eyes: The Art of Michael Malone, Folk Art Tattoo Flash: Rosie, Sailor Jerry Treasure Chest, and Sailor Jerry American Tattoo.
