Food Tattoos

As you take a bite of a cold and refreshing watermelon, memories take over you. You go back to your childhood, you think of summer days with the family, and with each taste, you get younger and more emotional. Who would’ve thought that food could do that to you? It’s no surprise that you want to get a watermelon tattoo to remind you of some of the best days of your life.

It may seem like an odd choice, but getting a tattoo of a watermelon is a fun way to make a certain memory last forever. It’s also a perfect design that will make you think of summer each time you look at it.
