    After reading the other tattoo thread inculinary student forum,  and a few in there were asking to see others, I figured what better than a foodie tattoo thread? 

    This is my first food related, but my 30th tat overall (I think...they start all becoming one huge one). Next will be a hop-vine either up my leg or to complete my left sleeve (I brew, and grow my own...hops that is [in print anyway]). I found it in an old cookbook and fell in love (I might have a thing for pork) I was orginially going to change belly to bacon, but didn't wan't to stray from the original when the time came.


    So who is next?

    Nice! I am big fan of the anatomy pieces. I don't have 30 (only 10 at this poit), but 2 are culinary related.

    I am from Pittsburgh and a cook, so this one makes a lot of sense...


    And my food/Dave Matthews Band-inspired piece (from "One Sweet World"):

    Meet 'Puff the Magic Dragon' named after the kid's song from back in the day. He's holding a chef's knife, and then some other stuff that means something to me. It's my favorite one so far; my next will be Tazmanian Devil from Looney Tunes eating Meatwad from ATHF /img/vbsmilies/smilies/biggrin.gif

    This was my first tattoo probably 4 years ago.  Its a Glestain honesuki that one of my first chefs brought back for me from his travels to Japan.  He had it engraved on the bolster with my name.




    I've also just recently got this rooster with maple leaves.  Not so much a chef tattoo, but it's def food related.

    I dig it Kaique!  I'm thinking of a new food tattoo as well, but so many are played out right now. Ideas that are floating around are the Maillard reaction bond structure, the Tapatio hot sauce Mexican guy, maybe a cocktail themed tattoo since Im a good drinker. I'm sure there are others out there that can post in this forum!

    I know this is posted somewhere on here. My first tattoo.

    Trying to decide what to put on my inner bicep so I can then complete the sleeve, not sure if it will be food themed or not.

    Toying with the idea of a bone in ham tattoo on my calf.

    If you could see my calf you would automatically think ÿep, a bone in ham would look perfect there.

    Nice , i dig it...

    My next tat is gonna be a grape vine that sprirals around my arm ( its food related and personal )

    I also wanted to get a tattoo on my calf , but of a restaurant waiter ( or server ) carving a turkey XD its an image that is on the start of every chapter from one of my most favorite , informative and greatest cook books.
