Food tattoos are replacing the more traditional body art designs that consisted of stars, hearts and anchors. With the rise of Internet culture, foodies have been given a platform to share recipes, network with other food lovers and blog about their cooking experiences.

Whereas cooking was a necessity with older generations, millennials have taken it up as a hobby that they share on the online sphere and use to connect to others. It's not about cooking for survival, it's about being experimentation. Cooking and baking is more of a creative art for them and to pay homage to their new fascination, they've taken to tattooing themselves with images of everything from bacon to popsicles and pickles.

Virtually every food group is represented, although it seems that broccoli and spinach still have a bad reputation... Stats for 10 Tasty Food Tattoos Trending: Older & Warm
