It's all going to be about your sweet tooth and ink craving from here.
Some people, when they adore something so much, immortalize it through giving the said object of affection a permanent space on their skin. That is, to honor it with tattoos. Unlike getting your current lover's name tattooed on your wrist, getting your favorite ice cream flavor done there instead is something most of us would probably regret less. What can I say, food can't break your heart. (Though, it may cause you to take insulin in your later years, so take it easy on that candy bar!)
These tasteful tattoos are more popular with women who are usually in their twenties. They're adorable, fun and lighthearted. They portray the collector as someone playful, cheery and easy going. It's ideal for the ladies who would like to get some ink done, but prefer a less-threatening impression.
But it's not only the girls who are fond of these tattoo delights. Guys like chef Chuck Hughes, who has a sleeve of culinary-themed tattoos, are joining in on the food love.
Dessert tattoos are not new or only 'trendy' or even 'kawaii'. Like all other tattoos, we encourage you to get a tattoo done not because it's the 'it' thing or it's the latest in fashion. Tattoos are fun and beautiful works of art that are best done when it reflects you as an individual. Even better if you can call your tattoo truly your own when it's customized by your chosen artist to suit what you'd like to incorporate in it. Like no other.
