Tattoo designs based on edible items are slowly gaining popularity over other designs for body art, typically consisting of celestial bodies, the heart symbol and the naval anchor. This can be attributed to the fact that the Internet has taken over even our eating habits and patterns. After all the Internet does provide an avenue through which people who love to cook or eat or even read about food can share their recipes, photos of their culinary achievements or even share their eating experience.
We all know that in the earlier generations, preparation of food was part of the routine, since the number of avenues to indulge in outside food was limited. Thereby cooking was considered a mundane chore that one had to undertake to take care of the nourishment needs of self and other family members. Now cooking is more of a choice so it is considered a hobby by many. This makes it a thing to be shared with known and unknown people in the rather infinite realm of the Internet.
Given the way this trend has picked up and the fact that most people love food, it is not surprising that food has started featuring in tattoo designs. The best part of choosing food as the subject of a tattoo design is that there is such a vast array to pick from. This means that there is no dearth of subjects with reference to this subject. Anything from the most exotic preparation to the most mundane of items that are a favorite can be depicted as a tattoo motif.
