What Some Of Kristen Kish's Tattoos Really Mean
“Top Chef” Season 10 winner Kristen Kish wasn’t happy with her appearance when she was young. Kish altered her appearance with tattoos and today, she has several black tattoos covering her arms, all of which she says have "very personal intent and purpose".
Kish's first piece of ink was her Korean name, which is tattooed across her wrist. Kish's other tattoos are clearly inspired by her trade and "her collection includes a woman holding a chef's knife, a butter knife, a fish skeleton, herbs, a whisk, and many more tools of her trade," reports Inked.
One of Kish's more elaborate tattoos stands as a tribute to the geographies that have influenced and shaped her culinary career. "I have lines in the shape of a human going down the back of my neck, and on the side of my neck I got the shape of the Austin River that moves into the shape of the Boston Charles River," she told The Slant.
