Ed Hardy designer t-shirts and trucker hats are the rage these days. The Edy Hardy clothing line was started by designer Christian Audigier who in 2004 obtained the exclusive rights to tatoo artist Don Ed Hardy designs. Christian Audigier was already successful by this point as head designer for the Von Dutch clothing line.
Don Ed Hardy, regarded by many as the Godfather of Tattoo, melded Japenese and American styles for his unique tattoo designs. In the early 80's he wrote 25 books with his wife on different kinds of art. It became very clear early on that licensing his work to Christian Audigier for the Ed Hardy Clothing Line helped market his designs to a broader audience.
Some celebrities known to wear Ed Hardy clothing are Paris Hilton, Hilary Duff, Ashton Kutchner, Justin Timberlake, Snoop Dogg and Sylvester Stallone.
The Ed Hardy Clothing line is not limited to trucker hats and t-shirts. Now you can get Ed Hardy jeans, leather jackets, shoes, bags, furniture, and even an Ed Hardy motorcycle.
