Anthropomorphic Skin



We could not believe our eyes when we saw this. We just can't resist adding these images to the "anthropo" gallery. We found the hotdog image on LTHForum.The dish and spoon came from the New York Times article about chefs and tatoos. The chef who sports this tatoo, Rick Tramonto, partner and executive chef at Tru in Chicago, said "The spoon is running, the fork is stressed out, the knife is excited and they're all going after the plate. The plate is in the weeds; he's got the lobster but he dropped the lemon"

Hi! I have a photo from Chile of quite the anthropromorphic bunch- a turkey, pig, cow, hot dog, corn and chicken out for a ride in a convertible. The hot dog is even enjoying a cup of coffee!

I dont have a blogger ID and I'm not sure how I can send the photo to you....let me know.

Cheers,
Anna

hello from chile! we are really excited to have a picture from you. yes send us the picture! just attach a jpg to the email and send the picture to pjohnson@rsad.edu and we will most certainly post it in the gallery. can you tell us where it came from, or something about it?

thank you again!

Hi again. Glad to hear you're interested!

I sent the photo your way, if it doesnt arrive in your inbox it's probably because I sent the high resolution version. If that's the case, I'll try again with a reduced version.

oooh that hot dog tattoo is awesome. after enough visits to hot dougs (check out their amazing anthropromorphic mascot... hotdougs.com) i might have to get one. i should also add that hot dougs has french fries fried in rendered duck fat. it's unreal.

hi chris. sorry it took so long to get to this post. as usual spring is spiraling out of control. i tell you what, i have some goose fat in my fridge right now. i bought it to make some Czech garlic soup. i might just fry up some potatoes just to see what it tastes like. i guess i won't be counting calories and who cares about cholesteral? fat is where it's at.

Hey - Thats my Guilty Of Being Delicious tattoo! It was created by the master of dumb tattoos Mike Brousseau at Federal Hill Tattoo in Providence RI. I came up with the concept and he drew it.

liam! the amazing internet. what are the chances i'll recognize my arm on someone's blog? not very good because my arm is boring. thank you for telling us more about your tattoo. if you get any other "anthropomo" tatoos send us a picture. you made my day.

It's actually a play on the Minor Threat "Bottled Violence" logo - like this: http://www.impactmerch.com/home/files/grey/thumb/bp13.gif
