Many people are aware of the celebrity loved Ed Hardy line of clothing and watches, but most are not familiar with the origin of the intricate, vibrant tattoo-inspired designs that characterize the brand. Though brand marketing guru Christian Audigier’s name is attached the the Ed Hardy line, the genius behind the tattoo designs is legendary tattoo artist Don Ed Hardy.
Don Ed Hardy has been reinventing the art of the tattoo for the last four decades. Known as the ‘godfather of the modern tattoo’, he is inspired by many different subcultures and their respective iconography. As a result, his tattoo creations are a mixture of American, Japanese, Cholo, tattoo, surf and hot rod imagery; giving his designs a wide range of cultural appeal.
Apples of Gold is proud to introduce an extensive selection of watches from the coveted Ed Hardy brand. His watch designs range from a slight twist on a classic to bold and edgy, and we’d like to share with you some of our favorites. They’re perfect for gifting, although you can’t hold us responsible
if you end up keeping them for yourself.
Ed Hardy Antoinette White Watch
The white Antoinette leather strap watch is perfect for a punk rock princess or glamourous lover of gothic romance. Beautiful tattoo style red roses pop against a stark white background, framed by sparkling crystals around the watch face. The white face is paired with genuine leather, crocodile embossed white straps that add glamour and luxury to the overall appearance.
Ed Hardy Gladiator Eagle Watch
The Ed Hardy Gladiator Eagle Watch is a bold twist on the classic leather cuff watch. Red suede lacing and a screaming eagle design lend interest and attitude to the typical cuff watch silhouette. It’s a cool spin on an established design that makes the watch simply irresistible.
Ed Hardy Warrior Hollywood Watch
The Ed Hardy Warrior Hollywood Watch is a study in contrast with its two juxtaposed images. On top is a curvy, sexy Hollywood pinup girl and beneath her is a snarling black jaguar. The jaguar is one of Ed Hardy’s trademark tattoos, and ups the ante of this otherwise demure watch. The beige cuff of the watch keeps it tame enough for the everyday, while a closer look at the images on the face reveal a wilder side.
Ed Hardy Love Child Black Watch
The Love Child watch is just what your inner rockstar ordered. A black leather cuff is studded with metal and sparkling black gems while the sleek stainless steel face features a black tattoo-style rose. It’s perfectly Ed Hardy, and undeniably fabulous.
