brilynnf This guy! We're the same age, grew up in the same small town, went to the same high school and somehow didn't meet until we both moved to the big city. Now he's the chef at the Air Canada Club. We've come a long way! - @chefmcmeekin for my Industry Ink project

brilynnf Sometimes you get drunk with a friend and decide to get Calvin & Hobbes tattoos together and then you go first and your friend bails... @chef_inked for my Industry Ink project

brilynnf A group of buddies, a bottle of whiskey, a blow torch, a cookie cutter and one of them flinched. According to Jordy, that's how you end up with an open sided heart, branded on your wrist.

brilynnf "I got my first tattoo at 17, without telling my parents. My mom saw it one day and I tried to tell her it was just a temporary rub on tattoo..."

brilynnf A lot of people get tattoos to mark a certain time in their life. @dennisjtay got his half sleeve at 30 to commemorate his time spent cooking in Italy. The reason for each part of the sleeve tells the story of the region in which he stayed and the restaurant where he cooked. Great story from a super nice guy! Find Dennis in the kitchen at @dailoto

brilynnf Part of the reason I've enjoyed doing this Industry Ink project so much are the stories behind the tattoos. They've ranged from sad to funny to stupid to extreme and everything in between. But each one has been interesting in its own right. @chef_lora got her first tattoo after beating cancer. Twice. Strong woman.

brilynnf "The thing with tattoos is that you're stuck with what you've got. It's like when you see someone wearing a cool outfit and you like it but you can't go out and buy the same one cause they had it first. Same with tattoos. Just like what you've got."

brilynnf @andrewhalitski is one of those chefs who I was surprised to find out had tattoos. I think he has more than he revealed... Find him in the kitchen @bucatoronto

brilynnf Amidst the (wonderful) chaos of shooting Alain Ducasse's first Toronto visit, a lovely package arrived in the mail from @zoemaslow @RandomHouseCA. This is the first time I've actually held the finished @rocklobsterfoodco Great Lobster Cookbook in my hands. It's a very surreal experience to see my name on the cover as photographer. Thank you Matt for letting me be a part of this craziness. And thanks to Zoe and Terri from Random House, who were so wonderful to work with.
The book's available for preorder right now on Amazon.
