Ryan DePersio’s left arm was full of tattoos, but his right arm was bare as a baby’s. Until this week. The chef at Fascino, Bar Cara and Nico has a new tat, and it’s not one he bought off the shelf. DePersio dreamed it up — a samurai chef, surrounded Berkshire pigs and roosters — and Ox, the owner of Jinx Proof Tattoo, created it for him. The outlining is done, and when the shading will be finished in a few weeks, it will set DePersio back about $750 to $1,000 (depends on how many hours it takes.)
I wondered, how many of you have tattoos? I’m guessing that they’re actually more prevalent than Twitter accounts among our readers. (DePersio told me was heading to Jinx via Twitter). Take our poll, tell us what your tat (or Twitter handle) is, and upload a picture to our Flickr group.
