Food Related Tattoos - Show Your Ink

that cupcake that looks like the skull and crossbones design is a trademark of Johnny Cupcakes. He's pretty big here in Boston. I was actually wearing one of his shirts today...little ants in a row carrying cupcakes

I have too many tattoos on my arms, none food related. If I were to get something food related I think I would get something cute like candies, lollipops, or maybe some other kind of sweet in the sailor jerry style

I have an oyster with an oyster knife stuck into it.

Keep on shucking

I didn't backread; I forgot if I mentioned earlier that I've got a "flammable" flame (from the diamond you see on tanker trucks) that represents all the grill work I've done.

Tomorrow night, I go back under the needle for a new tattoo involving mixing spoons, representing my pastry/baking work. Somewhat Grateful Dead-influenced as well, hopefully I can get some good pics once it's done.

I have an olive branch, complete with olives, tattooed above my left ankle (inside). It was a gift from my brother for my 40th birthday. I wanted to get one when I was younger, but my mother would always say, "Don't do it -- you'll regret it when you're 40."

Haa! No regrets -- I love it!

I'm on summer break from the CIA and I used the opprotunity to get a new tattoo...Its a glucose molecule made out of candy, can you guess the 3rd type of candy besides the gummy bears and candy corn?

Nice! Is the 3rd candy an everlasting gobstopper? :biggrin:

It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

If you want a sugar tattoo, take liquid caramel, approximately 340F and apply directly to skin.

Cheaper, easier, unfortunately only semi-permanent, but then again it wont look as bad when you're 80.

I know that if I had gotten tattoos like that when I was a young enthusiastic pastry student,

I'd be making that appointment for removal right about now. Either that or I'd be madly rubbing

at them with sandpaper, muttering, "What the hell was I thinking??"

It's like they say, never get your girlfriend/boyfriend's name tattooed on you because you never know how long the relationship is gonna last.

If I were to get a tattoo reflecting my experience and contribution to the pastry world, it would be a picture of a knife through the heart. :sad:

Edited to say, "Tiny, your tattoos are very cool and creative. I just hope you feel the same way about them 20 years down the line."

pastrygirl.......Hey! I have some of those caramel tattoos! I also have some cool hot-sheet-pan tattoos too.......oh.....no wait......that's scarification.....I'm confusing my body art..... :laugh:
