Meeting More Avocado Tattooers

Writing about nachos is an intensely interesting, weird and rewarding experience. I get to eat a lot of my favorite food, I get to meet a lot of awesome people who love nachos, and sometimes I get great emails. Phil, read our other avocado tattoo, Shelly, and left word that he too had an avocado on his person. His tattoo is AWESOME, so, naturally, we asked some questions.

What’s your name?
Phillip Sweetland

When did you get the tattoo?
July 2010

What’s the backstory?
I grew up with Avocados! You can do anything with them. I do mean anything (Referring to food of course) Both sweet and savory!

Why did you get an avocado tattoo?
Love everything about them, they also remind me of my Dad. It was always a regular thing for my Dad, I would be sitting at the dinner table when I was little eating whatever it was and he would almost always have an Avocado cut in half with some kind of salad dressing pored in the holes of each half. It always looked “weird” from a kid who lived off candy and microwave meals! I understand this now. For me, Avocado’s are linked to the past, future, and present!

Why is it on your side?
That is where I had room. Well, there was room in other spots but I have been wanting a piece down the side, the lettering flows well in that direction. I guess it just made sense and felt right.

Do you like guacamole?
Pffff, who doesn’t?

What’s in your guacamole?
Depends on what I have on hand but nothing beats a basic Guac. Avocados, tomatoes, onion powder, garlic, salt, pepper, maybe some chili oil, it’s always different.

Would you ever get another nacho related tattoo?
I would have to say yes. I love food and veggies.

What’s my first avocado memory?
My Dad eating them at the dinner table, cut in half with Italian dressing pored on top. I thought he was strange, haha, but now I understand the genius.

Does it get you free guacamole anywhere?
I am certainly going to try that from now on!

If you could eat nachos with any 3 people living or dead, who would they be?
I’d probably be down to eat Nacho’s with Ram Das, he’s a pretty chill dude. Maybe Yoda, and Yngwie Malmsteen, just because this would be the most random group of people I could think of. Ha.
