Chicago Hot Dog Chicago-Style Hot Dog

"I am the artist of these tattoos. I don't know much about the decisions that led my clients to get food tattoos, [but] mostly I'm just grateful for the challenge they provide. Realistic food is notoriously difficult to render in this medium; glossiness, translucency, and accurate color being so important in retaining the visual appeal.

"I know that the woman with the hot dog tattoo was moving away and wanted a tribute to her hometown, so she got the traditional Chicago-style toppings -- note the absence of ketchup."
