The series of 'Fat Flag' body art by Jonathan Icher is an interesting series that pairs flags from different countries around the world with a food that best represents that country. The flags were painted onto the bodies of the models by makeup artist Anastasia Parquet. As if the beautiful body paintings Parquet created aren't enough to make a dynamic photo, the models pose with the foods in each portrait as if they are about to eat them.

Some of the flags and foods paired together in the five part image series include a fried egg with the Union Jack, spaghetti and the Italian flag and a man decorated with the star-spangled banner, about to chomp into a big burger. Stats for Painted National Food Portraits Trending: Older & Buzzing
