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!
