Fabulous and Fresh Food Tattoos for National Nutrition Month

Fabulous and Fresh Food Tattoos for National Nutrition Month

March is National Nutrition Month, and to get you feelin' motivated, we collected some awesome food tattoos just for you.

First brought to the United States in 1973, National Nutrition Week was meant to direct focus to the necessity of healthy eating. Apparently it was celebrated with "a presidential proclamation, TV and radio public service announcements, news releases, and bumper stickers, all featuring the theme 'Invest in Yourself—Buy Nutrition.'" Which makes sense...what we feed ourselves directly influences how we feel, hence the metaphor "You are what you eat". National Nutrition Month came into existence thanks to the help of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics...and so here you will find many food tattoos to help you get in the mood...

Food is big business...whether we're talking about agriculture, processing plants, restaurants, dietitians, and the like, every human has food, or the lack there of, in common. Feeding America, the largest domestic hunger-relief organization in the US, "is a nationwide network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs that provides food and services to people each year." There are also 2.2 million farms in the United States alone, and 660,755 restaurants. So, obviously, as you know...food is a big deal. And people who get food tattoos feel that devotion pretty deep. Whether they are hardcore vegans or bad ass chefs who want to proclaim their love of the knife, these pieces clearly show the importance and adoration towards veggies, fruits, and more.

There are tons of different diets out there, and they also change depending on the continent you're on, or the person you're talking to...healthline.com put together a piece on the nine most popular diets. It included Paleo, Vegan, Atkins, and more...but we'd like to acknowledge that every body is different, and every body has different needs. We hope that you feel a healthy kick while perusing these fantastic food tattoos...and if not, we threw in a dessert for you too. Because moderation is key with anything, even diets, and what is life without a little sweetness?
