Don Ed Hardy was born in Iowa 1945, but he and his family moved to Costa Mesa, California less than a year after his birth. It is known to be the first American tattoo artist to incorporate Japanese aesthetics and techniques of his designs. His love for tattooing was evident that even a small boy. It copies and the design of his own fake tattoos. Only in high school that his interest in the arts of tattooing has taken a back seat to his love for Kustom Culture.
