It has been a special summer in San Francisco, especially as it pertains to the art scene and the amazing look at Ed Hardy's groundbreaking career in Ed Hardy: Deeper than Skin at the de Young museum through October 6, 2019. We have been collecting stories about Ed and tattoo culture all summer, getting a unique view that this once underground art form has been turned into an international genre, with much of that growth coming from the work of Ed Hardy. 

The de Young museum produced an overview of the audience's experience in the monumental exhibit, giving the context of not only what museum visitors have seen so far but how unique a museum exhibition on tattoo culture really is.  

Experience Ed Hardy: Deeper than Skin at the de Young museum, July 13–October 6. Got ink? Your tattoo gets you discounted tickets, for a limited time only. Learn more at
