Are tattoos of food destined to become a popular adornment among the masses, many of whom take their fashion cues from celebs?

According to Mashed, celebrities who sport food body art include musicians Ed Sheeran and Lea Michele, who wear respectively a Heinz-brand ketchup label on his arm and a stylized steaming cup of coffee on one finger. Sheeran explains that he missed the condiment brand while on one U.S. tour, so he had a bottle inked on his arm. Michele, for her part, wrote on Twitter following the death of her grandmother in 2016, “She wasn’t your typical grandma. She gave me my first cup of coffee when I was 8 years old.”

One of the most unusual tattoos is the one worn by actress Zoey Deutch, which depicts a bowl of matzo ball soup. While appearing as a guest on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Deutch was asked about the genesis of the tat and revealed, “A couple of years ago, I was really into soup.”

Do any of these celebrities have regrets about their tattoo? Deutch does, but it’s not that the tattoo looks to some observers like a flying saucer. It’s that the soup appears lukewarm, and the addition of steam lines would look like hair.
