Jon Favreau premieres his much-hyped (and remarkably quickly made) Chef this weekend at SXSW, and in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he revealed an understanding of the tension in celebrity chef culture that proved he was the perfect director to make this film.
Everyone loves looking at chef tattoos, even if there’s an overabundance of pork-related ink and permanent wrist-spoons. They’re visually stunning works of art, a mark that distinguishes its bearer as part of food culture, and a clear expression of the chef’s passion for their craft.
These are not chef tattoos.
Instead, these are the tattoos of groupies who, enamored with celebrity chefs, tattooed chefs’ faces onto their own skin permanently. We were appalled/inspired this morning when we saw Gordon Ramsay’s apprehension over a fan’s tattoo, and unfortunately, @Zoria_Nails isn’t the only one in this trend. Click if you dare. We double dare you.
