Those edible miniature trees that we know as broccoli are a vegetable in the cabbage family.
Broccoli was cultivated over 2000 years ago in the Mediterranean and is popular in Italian cuisine – the vegetable’s name is derived from an Italian term meaning “the flowering crest of a cabbage”.
This cruciferous vegetable is despised by many, but some love it so much that they have broccoli tattooed on their body. These vegetable tattoos are anything but bland, with new school pieces, plenty of sparkles, and a range of abstracts works – even pets are getting in on the action.
Think of your tattoo as the actual vegetable – what sort of “seasoning” does the broccoli (or your vegetable of choice) require in order to be taken to the next level and appealing for your eyes, rather than your mouth?
Take a look at these top 20 broccoli tattoos and begin to imagine how creative you can get with your own tattoo.
