Im a tattoo artist. Trust me... Ed Hardy is NOT the 'Godfather' of Tattooing. Not by any means. His art was iconic in the tattoo industry and He was a good tattoo artist for sure, but he wasn't the 'Godfather'. Here in America... Bert Grim would wear that crown. His heir being Lyle Tuttle.

I am not a practiced artist of any type. I purchased my own tattoo machine for simple black line work I want that I can not afford to pay for. It gave me sooooo much appreciation for the toll it takes on your body to do it. My hand was tired from the weight & vibration. Keeping the machine from rotating in my hand since it has so much of the machine hanging over the back of your hand. It was really hard to maintain an even depth so th ink takes and will not fade out. Keeping the lines an even thickness & shade is super difficult while keeping your hand in the air and not resting on the skin. I have only done one peice on my own. On my right thigh just above the knee I freehanded a sideways stretched out figure 8 that I morphed into being the wheels of a bicycle. I strategically added a road handlebar, seat post & seat to it. I was very happy how it turned out. It took me like 3 hours for something a professional would have done in about 20 to 40 min.

No pun to this gentleman but I'm tired of White Men always getting labels of being the first, originals, etc. Tattooing has existed for thousands of years. Mr. Hardy may be the pioneer of Traditional American Style tattooing, but 'The Godfather OF TATTOOING'. No.

These old timers of the industry are gona be gone soon, sad because most artists these days are proper shit cnts that fiddle fuck around on Instagram all day and only do tatts by appointment. Even my Dad, a pioneer of tattooing in West Au is fuckin done with it for the most part, he only goes into his shop once a week to make sure no ones burned the place down. Post note: My Dad actually went to San Fran in 77 to find new ideas and equipment, but he had his pancakes stolen twice by the same hobo. Also had the police pull guns on him and some other local artists in Kentucky, then they got snowed in for a week or 2. Times I'll never experience..
