While frat guys have their secret handshakes and makeout parties, the modern-day chef has chosen a little more permanent insignia of their brotherhood: tattoos. This distinguishing feature pops up on plenty of chefs both nationally and locally, bringing a touch of rock-star flare to the back of the house.


Tattoos -- whether used as a means to cover up scar tissue from years of kitchen work or a means to pick up chicks -- are as much a part of today's chefs uniform as a toque or an apron. In this week's issue, some of Kansas City's illustrated chefs shared their ink with us. To see more photos, check out our Kitchen Ink slideshow.
