15 Delicious Food Tattoos

Originally Published: 

You love food. You think about it for the majority of the day, and you're likely plotting your dinner while you're still eating your lunch, but would you ever get a food tattoo? You might even consider yourself a "foodie", constantly researching new restaurants in your city and getting into heated debates with friends about the best toppings for your avocado toast. All of these things are pretty solid signs of a true foodie, but are you dedicated enough to your favorite foods that you would commit to getting them tattooed on your body?

Hey, it's rarely a good idea to get a significant other's name tattooed on your arm, but what about pizza? Your love for pizza is just as true, and unlike your relationship, it's likely that that's not going to change anytime in the next 60 years (give or take). If you really think about it, there's a strong case to be made that getting a food tattoo is actually one of the smartest tats that you can get, at least in terms of lifelong dedication.

If all of that isn't enough to convince you that your favorite blueberry-lavender donut from that little vegan bakery down the street is worthy of a portrait-style tat on your forearm, these real life food tattoo photos might be just the inspiration that you need.
