We all know how delicious pastries can be, and we all know how terrible some of them are for our bodies. Baking is an art that has existed for centuries and has been a staple of many culinary milestones. It is a craft that requires careful concentration, hours of patience, and precise measurements– it actually sounds a lot like tattooing! One wrong step can send your craft to the culinary graveyard otherwise known as the trash. To show appreciation for the tasty art, here are a few delectable tattoos for bakers and pastry enthusiasts.
Much like a sugar cookie, this delightful tattoo is plain and simple. It features a wooden spoon and rolling pin, which are two iconic baking tools that every chef has in his or her kitchen. The black outline and tiny red heart demonstrate minimalism at its finest. This piece gets the point across.
This sexy thigh tattoo mimics an ornate floral garter belt with a whisk tied to it. It shows that baking can be sexy, but a whisk is a secret weapon never to be taken lightly.
Here is a humorous black ink piece poking fun at horror movie culture and the monstrous potential of yeast. That’s right, it is alive! This appreciator must have been a lover of popular culture, particularly in the realm of the macabre. It’s still good enough to eat!
This badass thigh tattoo showcases a baker’s most prized possession. It is the Bat Mobile of baking. This beautifully bright red standalone mixer sits tilted and kissed by orange roses. It is traditionally styled, and great detail can be seen in the metal bowl’s reflection as well as in the contour of the machine’s neck.
Here is a unique design featuring the various attachments for a standalone or commercial mixer. It includes a paddle, whisk, and dough hook but appears as though there is flour sifted in the background. The dot work and subtle shading give it the look of a painting such as a watercolor.
Lastly, here is the most decadent piece of them all. With artwork by Fabio Sciascia, this dot work French croissant tattoo expresses an immense love for pastry in a bold yet elegant and simple design. Any baker would be envious of this tattoo and are probably thinking of how to copy it right this second.
