Now your Smart
Fortwo can stand apart from all other Smarts in the crowd
with its very own custom ink inspired by tattoo legend Ed Hardy
. Project Tattoo has taken 100 Smarts apart and rebuilt them with all kinds of custom interior components to make it as pimp on the inside as the seven-layered Ed Hardy tattoo inspired satin finish paint looks from the out. For a little extra zoom they've even thrown in half-a-dozen extra horses and 14 lb-ft of torque courtesy of Doug Thorley headers
featuring twin chrome tips. Included among the other upgrades are a dash and seats finished in leather with embroidered suede inserts, piano black gloss interior accents, and a kickin' touch screen stereo with integrated navigation system.
The limited edition trinket will be announced today at the "When I Move You Move
" lifestyle trade show in Las Vegas. Each car will be numbered and autographed by designer Christian Audigier, the man behind both the trade show and the tattooed Smart. At a cost of over $24,000 for the upgrades (includes the tax but not the donor car), the Ed Hardy Smart Fortwo is only slightly less painful than a full body tattoo but, of course, there's always a price to pay when it comes to expressing your individuality through "art." Check out all the Ed Hardy-inspired sweetness in the gallery below. Thanks to Ryan for the tip!
