Tats

Ever thought about getting inked? My tat clock started ticking around the young age of 15. After my mom and I had the usual mother-daughter talks and discussed the precautions, I finally went all the way.

There I was--this little Jewish girl, who just got her learner's permit and a Kanji symbol on her left ankle to match. I don't regret my decision; it symbolizes my youth (even if the Chinese character I picked does stand for something as cliche as "heaven.")

I felt compelled to post something about the controversial art form after running into chef/owner of Palate Food + Wine, Ottavio Becerra, last night at one of dineLA's many promotional quick fire events. One of my favorite chefs to follow and a Joachim Splichal protege, Becerra won the cold noodle competition and then graciously posed for me. I always wanted the opportunity to get a shot of his Japanese Masamoto knife , an image I would gladly add to my arm if I were a devoted chef like he is.

I have a feeling the following trendsetters don't regret their body art decisions either, even if the fad has faded.
