If you were to get a tattoo of some sort of food (fruit, entree, cooking utensil, etc.) what would it be?

Asked by bright_eyes00 (1343points) July 21st, 2010

I love to cook, I live for it. I want to be a chef and open my own restaurant. A close friend, another dear Foodie, asked me what type of food tattoo I would get. I proposed a whisk on my forearm as a joke. But now, I’m thinking, “What would I really get?” I do not plan on getting such a tattoo, merely thought discussing it would be fun. :)

I was going to pick this but if it’s food precisely…I don’t really see myself sporting a tatoo of a pizza pop, T Bone steak or a sandwich from Subway…but it might still look awesome on my back. :D

I would get three peas in a pod. One for my love, one for me and one for my daughter.

@Symbeline thanks. I don’t know where I would put it, I am kinda covered.

It has a sweet outer skin with a tart inner flesh. That’s me. It also gives me the opportunity to say kumquat. It makes me giggle for some reason

A fried babby with potatoes and vegetables.

I actually have a friend who has a hamburger tattooed on her hip.

I would probably get a tattoo of a fish.

Maybe an artichoke. Gathered in on itself, multilayered, mysterious, and prickly, and complete with its marvelous curling leaves like the ornamentation on a medieval illuminated manuscript.

I couldn’t ever seeing myself doing it, but maybe wild strawberries.

A cauliflower that is shaped like a brain
Or a Walnut same

A Rose is edible, yet obtuse
Or a huge ass Moose

Meat Gravy or Jell-O
Embarrassing with bed fellow

I’ll choose a Four-Leaf Clover
Clearly tattooed not sober

I can’t imagine me actually getting a tattoo of any kind of food, but a mug of coffee would be appropriate.

A potato, like that kid got in the Book “Sideways Stories from Wayside school”

Sixteenth-century author William Butler described the strawberry thusly:

“Doubtless God could have made a better berry, but doubtless God never did.”

A head of lettuce. (Don’t ask.)

Not exactly “food”, but it’s food related I guess..
I would have the album art of Cancer’s album To the Gory End (NSFW!), but with Ronald McDonald’s head, and with the slogan “I’m lovin’ it!” on the bottom

A peach, on my arse. It’d be right at home there.

Starburst's avatar

what a great question…omg…so interesting and funny…goood answers… I have tattoos, but I have never considered food or utensils..maybe I might get a picture of honey and bees.

Jeruba's avatar

Why a head of lettuce, @ANef_is_Enuf? (I just have to ask when I’m told not to.)

gailcalled's avatar

If it matters, lettuce is, apparently, the only vegetable that can’t be processed, frozen, canned or dried.

downtide's avatar

@gailcalled When I was in university one of my room-mates (who was Chinese) used to deep-fry lettuce and eat it with noodles.

gailcalled's avatar

@downtide: Seriously? What did it taste like?

downtide's avatar

@gailcalled I don’t know – I never tried it.

gailcalled's avatar

@downtide: Sensible of you.
