Foodies, this one's for you.

Picking the right tattoo design is never easy. Since it will stay with you forever, you might want to choose one that resonates with you. It can be a dainty, thinly-lined tatt to remind you to look after yourself, a tiny piece related your star sign, or even a silhouette of your favorite flower. However, if an image of your favorite dish is what evokes happy memories, why not consider it getting inked?

Food tattoos might sound like a quirky design choice, but for some, it's more than meets the eye. It can be an ode to all the late-night coffee date with your friends, the first dish you shared with your significant other, or a pastry that reminds you of home. It can even be as simple as finding that food item cute! Whatever your reason is, it remains a cool piece of ink to stamp on your skin.

Like other tatts, food tattoos are easily personalized to fit your taste. Plus, they look good on any placement of your choice!
