Wine Tattoos

Gotta love 'em. I photograph wine tattoos whenever possible. This one is Brianne Day's (I don't have the name of the tattoo artist), and I think it's my favorite wine-related tattoo to date. If you've got one, share it!



About the 2009 "Cristo Irresisto" by J. Christopher (carefully labeled "Oregon Pink Wine"): Inexpensive and delicious, this rosé is creamy thanks to malolactic fermentation see comments yet retains the necessary acidic bite that tells you: It's summer and this wine can barbecue. Dry with more fruit than flowers, this is one of the best budget rosés made by an Oregon winemaker. You can find it all over Portland, Oregon, for $13. I got mine at Storyteller Wine Company on SW Hood Avenue.

Thanks! I'm so glad you liked my tattoo! The artist's name is Jason Leisge at Oddball Tattoo in Portland.
Cheers!

Thanks for the nice words about my wine but it did not go through malolactic, non of my white/pink wines do. It has an expressive mid palate due to the Syrah and Grenache. The Cristo Irresisto looks great with tattoo, nice pairing.

Congrats, Brainne! That's an awesome article (and tattoo). Funny coincidence, I just started writing for Eater Portland on Friday...
