“Cooking is notably one of the great tattooed occupations.”
I read this yesterday in an article tweeted by Bryan Voltaggio, chef and owner of Volt in Frederick, MD. He was featured in 5@5, a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe via Etocracy.cnn.com. It’s neat to see a local guy become so widely known, especially now that it’s been over a year since his Top Chef season ended.
I like to hear the stories behind why people got their tattoos and his were pretty interesting – plus, I have a soft spot for guys that get tattoos to represent their kids. My husband has two.

Do you have any food related ink?
