Los%20Angeles-20120425-00619.jpgPerhaps in an effort to gain control in a chaotic, transitory line of work, chefs take to skin indelibly marking themselves with tattoos of knives, vegetables, and porcine imagery. LAT checks in with notable ink bearers Michael Voltaggio, Carolynn Spence, and Bruce Kalman who all sport food ink. On the subject of Spence's artichoke tattoo she explains, "it's such a cool vegetable — very layered, very challenging, very rewarding..." Much like the restaurant industry itself. [LAT]
