40 Fresh Fruits And Veggies Tattoos
The first thing that comes to mind when seeing someone heavily tattooed with fruits and veggies is : vegan. Indeed, vegan people love to show their pride of their cruelty free food habits by celebrating the wealth of nature and its beautiful treasures. You can even go as far as getting an actual vegan tattoo, involving products without animal ingredients and testing. But you don't have to say goodbye to bacon to get a fruit or vegetable tattoo. First, their harmonious shapes and colors can make them both pretty, arty and funny. And then, they also share precise meanings, just like flowers and animals.
The most famous is indeed the apple, with its biblical knowledge reference, but you'd be very surprised by the secret meanings of what is inside your plate... In art, the fruits and veggies belong to the objects called Vanities, as they are associated with life and pleasure (eating but also the pleasures of the flesh as you will see) and things that don't last (they rot, so carpe diem!). Their main symbolism is of course sex : apricots, carrots and bananas are obvious, but did you know that the cherries express eroticism and orgasm? And the shapes of pears are indeed a fruit for feminity while the avocados and radishes are more related to manhood with their shape of testicles...
In a more spiritual background, artichokes are a bold symbol to express independance of mind, originality but also fragility (in Ancient Egypt). Lemons and oranges are a symbol of fidelity (from Ancient Greece) but sliced, they express freedom (liberating someone from the prison of life or body, such as a diseased body) and an attraction to the things of the mind (like studies). Pomegranates and peaches express immortality and luxury (the velvet of the peach's skin and the ruby red fruits inside the pomegranate). Bigger is the veggie, bigger is the life with hints of fertility, wealth and joy! In general, fruits with their sweetness are positive (red fruits are love and joy) and veggies more sour. But they all celebrate life!
So, could you cultivate your own garden on your body? What kind of fruit or veggie could you both crunch and ink ??? Find some fresh inspiration with these 40 fruits and veggies tattoos that are 100% natural, vegan and healthy! ;)
