If you have an old pin-up style or that era tattoo, good on you, but if you have anything made by this piece of shit then I have to say, go F*CK yourself.

That seems to about cover it. Its a bastardized representation of something that was once cool that got lost in translation into trendy bullshit. I agree that Ed Hardy, as a tattoo artist, created some beautiful art. But Ed Hardy tattoos and clothing is like comparing the original "Starry Night" painting to the toilet bowl painted like "Starry Night". (I hope i need not explain the allusion)
