I have several tattoos of classic Ed Hardy designs (or designs he adapted) and will probably end up with several more. I like his old school American stuff, and he's the most important historian and publisher in that tradition. But yeah, not so much into the clothes, even if they weren't now associated with some unfortunate demographics.
I will buy one of his gorilla clocks when the price comes down, though. It will fit in with our decor perfectly (lots of pulp, horror, and tattoo-related stuff, along with other artifacts of pop and trash culture that we enjoy).
I'm not real into kustom kulture, but my dad was and some of my friends are, and it's a shame to see what happened to Von Dutch's good name, too.
