Centro "Styles" for the Emmys

Fri Sep 19, 2008 - 4:46 PM EDT - By Annie Latham

When the 60th Primetime Emmy´┐Ż Awards ceremony takes place this Sunday evening, at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, keep your eyes open for the appearance of some stylish Palm Centros.

Palm and Don Ed Hardy ("Ed Hardy") have teamed up to create custom, bejeweled Centros, which will be gifted at the Presenters Gift Lounge backstage. Note: Click on pic at right to enlarge.

Don Ed Hardy is a painter, printmaker and tattoo artist. In fact, with 40 years of tattooing and legendary status among the tattoo community, Don Ed Hardy is known as "the godfather of modern tattoo", for his sophistication, depth and sense of experimentation. California native Don Ed Hardy is recognized around the world for his technical brilliance and mesmerizing imagery.

You can find Mr. Hardy's (no relation to the editor) handy work at his website,, or on Palm's Facebook page.

Go take a look for yourself and check back often on Facebook. According to the Palm blog post by Jon Zilber:

"Not only can you check out more images of these bejeweled Centros (they're hella-blingy, according to my daughter), but you can also catch up on celebrity Centro sightings, get advance word about upcoming Palm events and promotions, take in a video or two, join the discussion, and more."

Let's see... Centro on Oprah, Centro at the Primetime Emmy Awards, Centro on Facebook... Where will it turn up next? My bet is a cameo on HBO's Entourage.

The Emmy Awards will air live Sunday on ABC.
