OC Weekly just posted a dozen photos of food tattoos. I’ve seen some of them before, like the breakfast plate on the guy’s head. The best food tattoo I’ve ever seen though was on my old roommate — he had two eggplants spooning each other. They weren’t even anthropomorphized, they were just straight up eggplants positioned next to each other to make them look like they were in love.
Sydney-based artist Julian Meagher merges his art and medical experience to create delicate images through the exposé of body parts. The simple yet intricate oil paintings celebrate human skin through tattooed body parts and cultural scenes.
Ok, so these mightn’t be quite as cool as the real deal, but they’re the next best thing, and sometimes, well, that’ll just have to do. Designed by Hector Serrano, Animal Hands and Monster Hands are temporary tattoos for your hands. Perfect for your next night big out on the town.
I don’t have any ink, but if I was to get some, I’d probably get it done by French artist Yannou — if only to blend in amongst the swathes of hipster cats that swagger down the streets of Brooklyn. Ah, yes, conformity is safety in numbers. Wink.
I must be the only cat in Brooklyn not sporting any ink. Yup, the streets are lined with people rocking all manner of tattoos, some kitsch, some serious, some that probably should have stayed inside the mind of their creators. If I were to get some work done, I’d probably go to Yannou who takes a playful approach to the art of body re-styling.
