It seems like all the bad-ass chefs have tattoos these days (read: Anthony Bourdain). The latest trend among foodies is ink declaring their love for things like bacon and hotdogs. There are even some creative veggie-inspired tattoos too. These foodies must have some serious love to have a full colored piece of food on them for the rest of their lives. This takes “you are what you eat” to a whole new level.
I’ve rounded up the most jaw dropping, cute and just plain crazy food-inspired tattoos. Maybe they will inspire you to go to the nearest tattoo parlor and order one of these delicious, artistic designs for yourself.
Best knuckle tattoos: How cute is that block of cheese?! This type of small work is impressive in any case, and the fact that it’s food makes it even better.
Best couple tattoos: “His and Hers Avocado Tattoo.” What better way to mark your loyalty to your significant other than with two split halves of this healthy avocado? True love tastes like guacamole…right?
Best brand name tattoo: Jif Peanut Butter. Definitely mom-approved and makes everything taste better.
Best fruit tattoo: Never have to worry about 2-4 servings of fruit a day.
Best vegetable tattoo: Asparagus that looks fresh out of the grocery store.
Best meat-inspired tattoo: Classic pig slaughter… clever, simple and to the point. This person appreciates a good pork shoulder.
Best minimalist tattoo: Just in case you forget how to make hummus in a hummus emergency (it’s a real thing), you have a step-by-step guide on your arms.
“Tied” with this one—it’s girly, carb-y and adorable
Best dessert-related tattoo: Slice of key lime pie — because cupcake tattoos are too mainstream.
Best WTF tattoo: Dunking chicken nugget. Fast food forever…only one dipping sauce included though…
Best utensils/kitchen appliances tattoo: Fun twist on chefs essentials.
Bonus tattoo: Super creative Venn diagram of a BLT…a classy tribute to a classic sandwich.
