I saw on twitter that someone had gotten a Mangalitsa tattoo. As the caption explains, "when he flexes it gets fatter."
I called up the restaurant, Travail Kitchen and Amusements, and talked to Kale, the tattoo owner.
He said he'd used our stuff at Binkley's in Arizona. Foods in Season had delivered it to him. He's a huge fan of the stuff. He called it the "Wagyu of pork."
I told him I'd send him some complimentary products. I'm hoping I can get a photo that shows his tattoo and our products with logo.
It has taken a few years to get here, but we've finally got people putting drawings of our pigs on their bodies.
The whole business is so tangible. Pigs are big animals. We kill the pigs and have big hunks of meat and fat. Guys like Kale turn that into food that we eat and enjoy (hopefully a lot!). Some people like Kale make it even more physical and tattoo the pigs onto their skin.
