It's not news of the same caliber as the next W editor getting popped for a DUI, but after chasing this guy down to snap a picture, there's no way we were NOT gonna publish it. We don't wanna use a harsh word like d-bag—after all, this guy was minding his own business, driving along to his job or whatever—but wow. He probably paid someone money to do this. Kinda makes us wonder how many bad Ed Hardy tattoos there are out there. (And we're not talking about the MAN Ed Hardy, we mean the logo.) It looks like the domain name BADEDHARDYTATTOOS.com is still available; someone get on that.
