The Israeli upgrade for ‘food porn’: Temporary tattoo art for plating food


An Israeli temporary-tattoo company is hoping culinary culture will adapt its designs for plating. One look at Chef Alexander "Zoonder" Lachnish’s food presentations and you’ll be surprised the idea for soy-based temporary tattoos took this long to hit the table.

The project called "Almost Sexy" conceived by the Allenby Concept House advertising and content agency, has been selling temporary skin tattoos by Israeli and international artists. The idea of expanding into food-art tattoos comes in the wake of the popularity of “food porn” on social media and television.

The tattoos can be stuck on plates with a bit of water, just like temporary tattoos, and can be removed easily with a bit of scrubbing in the sink.
Lachish says the plating tattoos allow the chef or home cookers to choose a design based on what they’re cooking and what story they want to tell through their food.

Lachnish, famous for his molecular cuisine designs that he posts to Instagram, hooked up with AlmostSexy to add extra pizzazz to his already dazzling dishes.
