25 Yummylicious Temporary Food Tattoos That Will Make You Drool

People who love to eat are always the best people’ – Julia Child  

And we Singaporeans couldn’t agree more! Food is almost a national obsession and eating a national pastime here. We talk about food: at lunch, we discuss what we are planning to have for dinner, we debate on the best places to eat, and we even prefer to greet fellow Singaporeans with ‘’Have you eaten?”  instead of ‘’Good morning” or a “Hello”. Since ours is a melting pot of cultures, we have an amazing array of food to choose from: Chinese, Indian, Malay, Indonesian and other international cuisines. We love eating out at all sorts of places; from our favorite auntie and uncle stalls at Newton Food center to 5-star fine dining restaurants. In 2016, 2 of our street food stalls (Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice and Noodle and Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle ) earned Michelin stars, a first in the world! Do you love your Kway Tiao, Satay, Roti Prata, Chilli Crab, and Tao Suan? Like George Bernard Shaw, do you believe that there is no love sincerer than the love for food? Yes? Dear Singaporean Fellow Foodie, we show you how you can express your love for food in a wacky fun way. Temporary Food Tattoos are zany, colorful and great conversation starters (food pun intended!). We’ve cooked up some delicious temporary tattoo ideas for you. Without further ado, here goes:
