Apple Tattooing



" Ediblegeography.com delves into the history of apple tattooing. The concept is simple. You place a stencil on the fruit so that part of the skin isn't exposed to the sun, leaving a permanent image when the stencil is removed. However, getting it right is time consuming, so it's not a practice commercial farmers are likely to adopt. Pity, since I'd much prefer an apple tattoo over those obnoxious stickers that all the supermarket apples have on them. See more images of tattooed apples at the Société Régionale d’Horticulture de Montreuil"

8. How very disturbing!

Are they fans, or workers...and imagine, if they were workers, if they were fired...they'd have a reminder of a crappy job they lost on their skin!

Some of those things are just downright ugly. I don't get the appeal of putting a corporate logo on one's skin--heck, at least get paid for the indignity!

Everything then goes black for a spell.
