This selection of films named ‘Tattooing Reality’ shows the iconic Ed Hardy talk about the roots of the tattoo shop Realistic Tattoo in San Francisco and the tattoo masters Greg Irons, Bill Salmon and Dan Thome. There is also a film showing Ed Hardy, Chuck Eldridge, Bob Roberts, Bill Salmon and Leo Zulueta discussing Realistic Tattoo in 1987 and an interview between Don Ed Hardy and Phil Sparrow. The grainy footage hovering over tattooed bodies and fascinating conversations about the then vibrant tattoo scene in San Francisco are films of truly rich and important quality in regards to tattoo history and a very enjoyable watch if you haven’t seen them already.
Thank you to Occult Vibrations for uploading these films.
