But Mom is so 20th century. Tattoos are now much more about lifestyle than abstractions. (For example, check out this slideshow of food tattoos at OC Weekly.) It's the only kind of tattoo I could live with, really, because all the abstract nouns have been taken.
This skull veg*n tat speaks for itself, and what it says is ... uh ... "I'm a gentle, plant-loving, animal-cherishing person with other unresolved issues." Always a message worth sharing.
The sweet spirit of this beer-and-pig chest bump below gets pretty close — it tells a story and doesn't take itself too seriously.
That's what's rattling around here on Steeplechase Mother's Day weekend. How about you — planning any food tattoos? (This lineup of ill-favored food tattoos on Food Network Humor can serve as a cautionary.)
What about food happenings, weekend cooking and happy beer-and-pig reunions? What are you and Mom doing to celebrate her continuing fabulousness? Open Thread is your friendly weekly forum.
