Drawings for Tattoos

by Don Ed Hardy

This hardcover book contains 126 of Hardy’s drawings that were originally created for custom tattoo commissions but never tattooed. Including pieces from the 1960s and early 1970s there are also designs and drawings from early childhood as well as from his art school days. All are placed in the context of an essay about how the impulse to draw is at the core of tattooing as a medium.

A majority of the images are reproduced actual size and provide a never-before-seen document of Hardy’s process.

Hardcover. 88 pages. Measures 11 1/4" X 15 1/4"
