Japan is not only famous for its
culture and technology, but also for its great cuisine. Japanese food has spread
to every part of the world. It’s your turn to try it if you haven’t already.
There is a vast array of Japanese dishes you can try, but sushi remains the
star of the menu. It’s easy to recognize this dish from the placement of sliced
fish and rice. You shouldn’t mistake it for other treats, like sashimi. Sushi’s
key ingredient is sour rice and the unique taste comes from vinegar.
While sashimi also uses raw fish,
it’s not served with rice, let alone vinegared rice. Actually, the word sushi
is derived from the combination of Su and Shi, which means fermented rice. The
use of vinegar was originally intended to protect the fish from spoiling. We
all know that vinegar is a natural preservative, so it works well for dishes since
Now speaking of sushi tattoos,
you can choose any design because sushi is presented in a variety of ways. Just
remember that it has to contain the key ingredient, rice. Without it, then the
tattoo would look more like a sashimi tattoo. Work with a talented tattoo
artist. He should be able to create a tattoo based on a sketch you collected
from the internet or another source. Sushi is typically served on a plate, so
you can draw a tattoo of plated sushi.
Some people like to eat sushi
with sauces and condiments. If there’s enough space for the tattoo, you can
also add traditional sauces commonly served with this fresh dish, such as soy
sauce and wasabi. Soy sauce is not just popular among the Japanese. People from
all over Asia love it as well. In fact, it has become a staple in various
countries. For your information, fish is not the only option for sushi. It’s
also served with other raw toppings, such as shrimp and octopus. Either
template would be interesting for a tattoo.
Many people don’t find the idea
of eating raw food appealing, but you must remember that chefs are trained to
clean and serve raw food properly, so there’s nothing to worry about. Fish tastes
so different raw, probably one of the reasons why people can’t get enough of
sushi. It will be a different dish if the fish is fully cooked. Not just the
aroma, but the texture and flavor will change tremendously. Would you get a
sushi tattoo now? Culinary art is just as complex as other types of art.
Therefore, it should be considered as a theme for tattoos.
