We’ve got every kind of kitchen tattoo but the kitchen sink! Check out these amazing tattoos!
Okay, we’ve This is a strange one. When I was young, a group of friends of mine who lived in a separate town to me decided to get themselves tattoos of kitchen and household appliances. The idea was that it would be some kind of bonding exercise and keep them anchored together through a mutual love of vacuum cleaners or dishwashers or spoons or maybe even — shock and horror! — a whisk or a microwave. There were about seven or eight of these guys, and they were all totally up for doing this. Problem was, no-one could agree exactly WHAT appliance each one wanted. There were arguments. Clashes. Differences of opinion. People wanted the same appliance and that would never do. So, like many teenage dreams and aspirations, the idea withered away and died. I always thought that this was a great pity. So now, many years later, the old idea comes back to me again and I wonder if anyone out there actually DOES have a tattoo of a kitchen or household appliance. I mean who would do that?
The Washing Machine
I had to post two of these tattoos to just prove to myself that more than one person in the world was ridiculous enough to go to a tattooist somewhere and ask for a washing machine. I wonder what the tattooist actually thought? Did he ask why? I would have asked why. Anyway – Exhibit #1 – the washing machine.
The Whisk Tattoo
There must be something about having an electric whisk tattooed onto your thigh, as we have two right here. Maybe they’re the same person but I hope not. I actually like these tattoos. Colorful, playful and fun. Still have zero idea why, though. Why not, I guess. Here’s another whisk below -also on the thigh (where else?) but this one is old school. A hand whisk instead of electric. Rock and roll:
The Assorted Utensils
Can’t decide what appliance you want tattooed onto your body forever? This was the fate of my friends way way back in the day. The indecision. What about choosing a few of your favorite small ones and putting together a selection instead? A knife, a whisk (again – whisks are popular!), a cheese grater, and a corkscrew. Dilemma solved. If only my friends had the internet back in the early 90s…
The Mixer (Okay, Another Whisk)
Is anyone getting appliance tattoos that aren’t of mixers or whisks? What is it with this particular appliance that is so popular? Actually, putting aside the philosophical aspect of why, check out this tattoo for itself. The reflection and the shine that you see here is nothing short of awesome.
The Vacuum Cleaner
Nothing says “I love you mom” better than a tat of a vacuum cleaner. I guess this guy just has childhood memories of his mother pushing a Hoover or a Dyson around the room when he was young. That’s a legacy, alright.
This one has to go straight into the WTF files. Anyone who can even think about merging a common or garden toaster with an octopus (or maybe squid, even?) is either totally mental or on drugs. There is no rhyme or reason whatsoever for this hybrid of kitchen appliance and sea creature, but who’s to say that doesn’t have the right to exist?
The Real Toaster
After the lunacy of the octo-toaster above, we need a return to normalcy and decency in the toaster world. I believe that we have found that here, with this cute couples toaster tattoo set, on his arm and her leg. Heartwarming.
Who doesn’t love TV? It’s the one appliance in the house, apart from radios, computers, DVD players, etc, that provides actual entertainment. Back in the day when the old school TV you see here was sitting in the corner of living rooms all over the nation, showing “I Love Lucy” and “The Ed Sullivan Show“, whole families used to sit around this contraption after dinner. Only think missing here are the rabbit ears antennae. Talking of rabbit ears, here you go:
…. and here’s an actual good tattoo of a TV – or a pair of TVs:
The Sewing Machine
I get the feeling that this tattoo is more about the message than the appliance, but a sewing machine is certainly one of the most noble of appliances, and thus deserves recognition on this esteemed page.
The Sewing Kit
And staying on the sewing theme, what if you can’t afford a proper sewing machine, or just want to do it old school with a needle and thread, scissors and thimble? And a tape measure, of course. Well, in that case, you’d represent that with a fine tattoo like this one on your thigh.
The Measuring Spoons
Handy little appliances, measuring spoons are. Great for baking and general cooking duties. They’re also great for inking onto your wrist should you be so inclined.
And so there you have it. Proof that there are people out there who have no problem in tattooing appliances onto themselves. There’s a lot that we couldn’t find here – I was dying to find a fridge or a microwave. Maybe a kettle, but alas it wasn’t to be. Seems that there’s a lot of whisks out there, though. Maybe you know of someone somewhere with an appliance tattoo that hasn’t been mentioned here. Feel free to send in your own photos as we’d love to see them and find out more about what’s out there. Appliances rock!
