Art that adorns the flesh…

Hungry for Tattoos

March 30th, 2010 by

Who doesn’t like food?  That’s what I say, anyway.  I was just reading an article about food tattoos and how they are apparently growing in popularity.  Now, I’m not so sure that they’re actually growing in popularity, considering that the article only really talks about a small handful of people who have food related tattoos, but then again, you never know.

In the past few years, food seems to have had almost as much of a fashionable resurgence as tattoos have.  Don’t believe me?  Turn on your TV and check out the Food Network.  Celebrity chefs like Anthony Bourdain, Mario Batali and Bobby Flay have never been as widely recognizable as they currently are.  Along with the celebrity of these chefs comes a new appreciation for food and with that passion for food, it’s understandable why so many people turn to tattoo.  A tattoo of a cupcake or a sandwich?  Why not.  It doesn’t surprise me a bit that people would want food tattoos.  Does that mean that these types of tattoos are becoming any more popular than any other type of tattoo?  I doubt it, but placed in perspective with the everyday common nature that tattoos now have, it only makes sense that something as common and everyday as food would find its way into some ink and on to the skin.

Check out some of these food related tattoos and see what you think.
