Top 8 Cinnamon Roll Tattoos

Rolls, buns, or scrolls – these sweet and sticky cinnamon treats go by many names and today we’re going to throw another name in the mix: kanelbulle.

Today, October 4, is Kanelbullens dag (Cinnamon Roll Day) in Sweden and Finland. The day was created 20 years ago by Kaeth Gardestedt to celebrate Swedish baking traditions.

Food tattoos are certainly not traditional in the tattoo realm, however they are seeing a surge in popularity as we discovered during Food + Drink Month.

Are cinnamon rolls your favourite treat? Go out and treat yourself to a new tattoo! Any excuse to celebrate.

Or if you’re in the mood for some baking, there’s a recipe up on the Kanelbullens dag website. You can then check out these tasty tattoos while the buns are in the oven.
