One of the chefs on the Baja trip and I were discussing food-oriented tattoos, and he talked lovingly of a favorite boning knife he's thinking of memorializing on an arm. I like the idea of getting a food tattoo -- even though I'm not a chef, I'm pretty sure I won't ever get tired of eating. But unlike the pig parts tramp stamp girl pictured above, I'm just not sure what would be the best subject. I love tamarind, for instance, but a tamarind pod would just look like an ugly blob, I'm afraid. I'll have to ask Octavio Becerra who did his nicely-detailed butcher knife. Guess it's time to peruse Flickr's Food Tattoos pool.
Have you seen any great food tattoos? Please email a photo if possible, or just describe it in the comments, and I'll let you know if I decide to get one.
