In the tradition of the Onion’s Sunday Magazine, welcome to Sprudge Sunday Magazine – “Specialty Coffee’s Cover Page.”
For the twelfth issue of Sprudge Sunday Magazine, we’re honoring the coffee industry’s penchant for coffee tattoos. Earlier this week we asked our readers on Facebook to give us a shout if they were inked with coffee tributes. Turns out, there are a lot of you. People around the world sent us gorgeous tattoos of coffee brew methods, Prufrock bunnies, latte pours, portafilters, clever sayings, espresso machines, and more.
We’ll be compiling all of the tattoo photos together in a future post. Please send us photos of your favorite coffee tats, along with the name of the tattoo artist (so we can support the scene!). Email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The cover model for this issue is M’Lissa Muckerman, formerly of Los Angeles, now residing in Melbourne, Australia. M’Lissa has a number of coffee tattoos, including the La Marzocco Firenze Lion, and matching latte art tattoos with Ben Helfen.
