LOTS OF FAMOUS CHEFS have been flaunting their ink on TV—including
Anthony Bourdain, Guy Fieri and Anne Burrell. So it’s no wonder that many in the
Bethesda area have started showing off their tattoos, too.

and Aggio in Friendship Heights, says the relationship between restaurants and tattoo
parlors is simple: Both tend to be open late. “For a lot of chefs, tattoos are things that
just happen after shifts,” he says.

showing their true colors
is a matter of art
