beautiful tattoo. but not the greatest spot for it.
i don’t know why you’d want an artichoke tattoo, but i actually really like this one.
awww who doesnt like artichokes!
Its so random its good!
And thats a lovely green colour.
And of course she is very hot…
that looks so good. kudos to you girl !
man, i love vegies :]
Again not quite sure why anyone would want an artichoke tattoo – though it does match her eyes nicely. The coloring is lovely, too. (And as a vegetarian, artichokes are my friend. Mmm hmm.)
I think that location choice is fantastic! I like this a lot.
i actually think it looks odd with the frame around the artichoke .. is she planning on adding more to the arm?
Does it remind anyone else of the logo from Sutton Place Gourmet?
I mean… if you were going to get an artichoke tattoo this would be the one to get.
I want one too… but in full bloom. This one is very beautiful.
The artichoke is magic, it’s the only vegetable that, after it’s eaten, there are more things in your plate than before.
#10, I was thinking the same thing too!
she is beautiful..
and i love the placing.
beautiful original and refreshing
I saw this the other day and thought it was great.
I noticed the placement first and foremost and that’s what drew me in. I love unusually placed tattoos.
She has such a classic beauty, I think the style of the tattoo compliments that.
Maybe there’s meaning behind it for her. I personally really like it.
wow that green is awsome
For the record, Tim works at All or Nothing Tattoo in Smyrna, GA.
Wow, I really like this tattoo. I love the placement and I love that it’s an artichoke. And the green is fantastic! It’s so vibrant and … well, green. All in all a very attractive tattoo.
Tattoos of vegetables and fruits are my favorite ( I have two myself) but artichokes suck trying to eat, it’s so much work for so little reward
#10 that’s got to be what it is
What is Sutton Place Gourmet?
and neat tattoo.
I have to agree though, strange placement.
very vibrant- very cool
i wonder if she is vegan/vegitarian? 0.o
sutton place gourmet was a gourmet food store (somewhere between the fanciness of a whole foods and a dean & deluca). now it’s the exact same thing only they call it balducci’s (it was bought out). not quite as charming of a logo though.
and that’s my story about that.
I like artichokes. And getting a tattoo of one is like getting a rosebud. The arti is a big thistle bud. (They taste good and are pretty in bloom as well.)
Now we need an asparagus tattoo!
I like it, it does seem unusually placed but I think it suits her.
Wow, her skin is flawless!
Really like the randomness of the tattoo too.
that’s an awesome tattoo
I love this. Wonderful colour and detail.
She’s so cuuuuuuuuuute =)
#20, yes Tim works at AON now, but that is just as of the past few months. He previously worked in Pittsburgh and that’s when she got this done.
Google image search Sutton Place Gourmet. That’s it right down to the border.
And in North Italy where my wife is from they cook and eat the whole artichoke. Nothing left on the plate!
shading brings compliments the beauty in her eyes. I could learn to love the artichoke.
This reminds me of that Wayside School story where that kid got a potato tattoo and no one understood why. Anyone remember that?
omg kenna yes! i was just discussing that story with a friend the other day! our grade 4 teacher read us all the wayside school books, and even then i remember thinking that a tattoo in elementary school wouldn’t be such a good idea, haha
wow. shes so gorgeous. i like the coloring a lot but i agree with some that the placement prob wasnt the best.
YAY!!…..Tim Victim!!…..All or Nothing Tattoo!!
nice girl 😀
hey, that would be my hometown!
“you’ll never be a vegetable – even artichokes have hearts!”
definitely the first thing that came to mind when i saw this. i like it.
that’s the most lovely artichoke. congrats. i’m jealous.
It would be such a nice tattoo if only it wasn’t on my daughter….(sigh).
Gotta agree the placement is simply miserable. Even the small of the back would’ve been better, doh! Beautiful girl though and artichokes are good. Sadly I see no mayo… A fucking artichoke tattoo – now I’ve seen everything…
One more thing – gotta question the artist; that is a verrrry, verrrry clumsy frame around the choke, doesn’t even look like the artist managed to balance the placement of the choke in the frame nor the frame inside her arm – and not a very well done choke at that. I love spontaneity as much as the next person but still – a little planing would’ve been wonderful. Gonna be a pain to cover up. I guess I just don’t get the choke!
she has the most beautiful eyebrows i’ve ever seen!
reminds me of thom yorke from radioheads lyric in atoms for peace. “peel all the layers off, i want to eat your artichoke heart!”
but maybe i am wrong.
nontheless this is a pretty neat tat
