Knives & Ink

Man-buns will come and go (hopefully in 2017), but tattoos are not simply a passing trend; chefs have been illustrating their skin with pictures of butcher's knives, cuts of meat and produce long before hipsters discovered pizza tattoos.

A new book, Knives & Ink by Isaac Fitzgerald & Wendy MacNaughton, records interviews with some of America's most well-respected chefs, such as Dominique Crenn, Sean Telo and Danny Bowien, about the reasons behind their ink. Some tell of their love for the kitchen or their mums, some tell of personal events, and some have little reason behind them at all. Here are a few of our favourites.
