“What is it about chefs and their tattoos?” asks author Isaac Fitzgerald, in his new book, Knives & Ink: Chefs and the Stories Behind Their Tattoos, with Recipes. Out today with Bloomsbury USA and illustrated by Wendy McNaughton, the book is a collection of stories from 65 chefs—complete with beautiful illustrations—on how and why they got their ink. Some of the chefs have Michelin stars, and some work in backwoods diners, and their stories are alternately cheeky and poignant—but regardless of who they are and where they cook, Knives & Ink offers another look into the creative, scrappy, food-filled lives of some of our favorite chefs.

Check out a sneak peek of the book below.
