No well-appointed breakfast table is complete without a leaning tower of pancakes, and this American favorite has been a mainstay in the home for well over a century.
Reminiscent of sunlit diners and syrup-soaked memories, pancakes are the ultimate representation of comfort food at its finest. And because comfort is in short supply these days, the pancake tattoo is a much welcome sight.
Friends and passersby alike will instinctively lick their lips upon glimpsing your pancake tattoo, and long for a moment of indulgence over a steaming plate of hotcakes. Whether you prefer a vintage motif, accompanied by bright colors and iconic imagery, or prefer a more realistic, camp black and white ink rendering, your pancake tattoo is your personal piece of home, no matter the lengths you roam.
Familiarity may not always be a given in life; sometimes we must travel far from where we’re from and experience all new manner of tastes and sensations. This is a wonderful thing, but the pancake tattoo ensures that your homecoming will be all the more sweeter.
Sunday morning treats and counter top classics, the pancake’s status has long been solidified in Western culture and now, thankfully, in the tattoo archives. Inking a bit of that luscious legend onto your skin is far from frivolous, but an act of insurance against the uncertainties of life.
It may not take the place of the real thing, but your pancake tattoo will come pretty damn close.
