25 Weird Ass Taco Tattoos That You Won’t Believe Are Real

Let’s face it, everyone loves tacos. Our obsession has gone so far that we have taco Tuesday, Dorito loco tacos, and taco food trucks in every corner of Los Angeles. Sometimes our obsessions get a little out of control and we get tattoos dedicated to our weird ass loves. Below you’ll see 25 taco tattoos that’ll make you ask “how far is too far?”

1. The Pickle Surfer

Between the pickle-man and smiling taco surfer, there’s a lot going on. I think it’s safe to say this tattoo is one of a kind and truly inspired. It really makes you want to go out there and live your best life.

2. Should we taco ’bout it?

This persons tattoo likely gives us a glimpse into their lives and what inspired such a masterpiece. I’m not sure what story the snake is trying to tell but the taco speaks for itself. Puro pari, guey.

3. These tacos just can’t help turning all the way up.

Like the last tattoo, this one also gives us a glimpse into the person’s mind. However, this tattoo takes it to a whole new, and fairly offensive level. Not sure who that stereotype is meant to represent but I know it’s not any of us.

4. Okay, that’s enough.

Speaking of stereotypes, this one goes too far. Not sure what the thought process was with this one but I’m surprised to see they haven’t taken it off their Instagram yet.

5. Who is he?

I don’t know who this is modeled after but I think it’s very likely that it’s my primo who makes this exact face when he pours you another shot even after you’ve said that you’re done drinking.

6. This Tacosaurus is kind of everything.

You might not have seen him in “Jurassic Park” or “Jurassic World” but everyone knows this delicious dino once ruled the prehistoric world. *adjusts tinfoil hat*

7. Sad Taco

Another tattoo that tells a great story. The single tear represents our sorrow on Taco Tuesday when we can’t have anymore tacos and have to tell our waiters, “ya no mas, estoy lleno”.

8. How hard does your love for tacos go?

If you’re this person, you love tacos to your the bone. It is a little terrifying to see the skull in the shell of the taco. Makes us think that there is something very wrong with this thing.

9. Life imitates art and it is magical.

Everyone’s favorite moment forever captured in this tattoo. Plus, you get to see the most interesting man in your world everytime you look at this tattoo. Who doesn’t love the taquero.

10. Sliding into your DMs like…

I’m not sure where this tacos trekking to but I’d really like to know. Where are they going? Who are they waving to? How’d they get hurt? I have so many questions about this and I hope they’re okay.

We’re all team taco but are you team salsa verde or team salsa roja? Check out this quiz and let us try to guess your answer.

11. Purr-ito Cat-o Taco

When dedicating a tattoo to something you love, combining two things and getting a two-for-one tattoo is always a great idea. Or, like this person, just combined the two things the Internet is obsessed with: cats and tacos.

12. He wants to taco ’bout it.

This turnt taco is ready to taco ’bout it and he even comes with his own microphone. I’m definitely gettin gsome late night radio vibes here. How prepared!

*Prepared Taco pun intended.

13. The strong, silent type.

This person’s tattoo prefers to remain silent. Can’t be too mad at them. It is so exhausting to always have to hold conversations with people who ultimately just want to eat you.

14. Cute or creepy?

CREDIT: inkjecta / Instagram

I’m not sure how I feel about this tattoo. It should be cute but something about it is just a bit unsettling. Wait? Is the shell made out of bologna?

15. Cat-taco or Taco-cat?

CREDIT: joshuatattoo / Instagram

I don’t know where, why, or how the cat taco trend got started but it makes for some really cute tattoos! If I wasn’t so wishy-washy, I would get one right now.

16. This is true love everyone can get behind.

CREDIT: thundertats / Instagram

You know what they say, “get a permanent tattoo of a taco so I know it’s real!” Not sure exactly who they are but we can definite get behind their sentiment.

17. What would your dad think?

CREDIT: mandy_pants_tattoos / Instagram

I know what my dad would say. He’d say, “mijo, why are there carrots on that taco?” But he’d be fooled because it is really just cheese drawn to look like carrots. #Genius

18. Gucci gang who?

Taco gang, taco gang, taco gang. Try saying it five times fast. Now it’s all about taco gang, it even flows better than the original!

19. This taco looks like treble!

CREDIT: devonbluetattoo / Instagram

What do you think it’s listening to? My bet is on Selena. But I do hope that there are napkins around to catch all of that grease falling out.

20. Squad goals!

CREDIT: carlostattoo / Instagram

The ultimate friendship tattoo has to be a food based tattoo. Food is the most important part of most people’s lives so what better way to celebrate love than food!

21. Floral and fresh

This pretty picture looks like the kind of tattoo Frida Kahlo would get if she had a taco tattoo. It is definitely giving us some tropic vacation vibes and that avocado ties it all together.

22. Taco dirty to me

CREDIT: adsink / Instagram

There is really no shortage of puns based around using “taco” as a stand ing for “talking” and it is okay. Just don’t get too carried away with it or it can be tragic.

23. Should we go get tacos?

CREDIT: mikebsavagetattoos / Instagram

This smart tattoo answers the age old question with the only acceptable answer, “yes!” Next time your friends ask, just show them this.

24. Taco or tequila?

With the lime, taco positioning, and onion topping that looks like sea salt, this tattoo looks like it may have originally been planned with a shot of tequila instead of a taco.

25. The holy taco is the best taco.

If La Rosa De Guadalupe had an episode about a taco tattoo, it’d be this one. This taco has all the must-haves; rabano, jalapeño, y un limon. No wonder such a perfect taco has that angelic glow!

People Really Do Some Really Sneaky Stuff For Food When It Comes To Going To The Movies

People Really Do Some Really Sneaky Stuff For Food When It Comes To Going To The Movies

We love going to the movies. Whether going out with girlfriends or enjoying a classic date night, an evening at the theater is a winner. However, what we don’t like about the theater is the pricey concession prices. A night at the movies can easily break the bank if you give in to the expensive options at the snack bar which is why we don’t feel the slightest bit guilty about sneaking in the occasional soda can or bag of candy every once in a while. 

However, we were surprised to find that when it comes to sneaking things into the theater the Internet really does do the most. 

Instagram / @fiercebymitu

For example, this couple used a baby car seat in order to sneak snacks into their local theater. Talk about ingenious! We found even more impressive movie sneaks while looking around on Twitter and Instagram and we just had to share them with our readers. Here are some of the most outlandish things that people have admitted to smuggling into the movies. 

1. A snack more fit for a college dorm.

Instagram / @maruchan_inc

“A bowl of cooked 2 minute noodles.” wellibmt17 

2. A winning combination. 

Instagram / @julloa84

“Savages! I’ve had Wendy’s, wine and more 😬” @liz_laprieta 

3. Mini refreshment.

Instagram / @tnhillsdistillery

“😂😂 10lbs of airplane bottles” — @lagoss_

4. How did she even get this in?

Twitter / @illimattic408

Sneaking a watermelon into the theater would have taken a really big bag in order to go unnoticed. It’s more impressive because this melon isn’t even sliced into pieces. 

5. Pan = the perfect snack.

Twitter / @shitcoinmining

This isn’t just any bread, it’s the longest bread you can find. This Twitter user successfully slipped a baguette into the theater unnoticed and we’ve go to wonder where he hid it. Was it hidden up his sleeve? Down his pant leg? We want to know.

6. Just what the fanny pack was meant for.

Twitter / @fremlo_

We have questions. Was it cold pasta or warm? Are we talking spaghetti or more of a filled pasta? What’s the sauce situation like? Either way, this is a creative smuggle.  

7. A burrito baby was born.

Twitter / @mfrancook

Congrats, it’s a burrito! Sure, we’ve sneaked things into our bags before, but we’ve never gone full preggo belly just to smuggle in our snacks. This takes some real commitment.  

8. Another baby bump sneak.

Twitter / @jordynbink

If there’s one food worth getting caught with, it’s definitely tacos. This Twitter user implemented the old baby bump trick in order to get her Taco Bell into the theater. It even comes with a side of tortilla chips. 

9. A movie goer’s best friend.

Twitter / @xovaleriax0

It isn’t just food that people take into movie theaters. Man’s best friend has also been known to stow away and enjoy a film or two. This Twitter user was able to sneak her adorable Pomeranian into the movies. If we were in the same theater, we’d be too distracted by this puppy’s cuteness to enjoy the movie being played. 

10. We see your dog and raise you a cat. 

Twitter / @eric_young5

When we think about it, a dog isn’t such an out-there thing to see at the movies. A cat, though, is much more surprising. Cats often don’t like to do what they’re told but this cat is different. Mister Lewis was able to make it through an entire film. 

11. What’s impressive here is the number of nuggets that were snuck in. 

Twitter / @StrengthofFates

We can’t have just one nugget and, apparently, neither can this Twitter user. Check out how many she was able to smuggle in and we dare you not to be impressed. 

12. A snack perfect for a celebration.

Twitter / @rachharbin

We’d be afraid that this treat would melt on the way into the theater. Luckily for this Twitter user, the ice cream cake made it there in one piece. We hope they decided to skip the candles for this cake. 

13. A homemade treat.

Twitter / @atterbom_

Store-bought cupcakes are one thing, but have you ever brought your own homemade cupcakes to frost in theater? This Twitter user did. Buying candy may be easier but it’s much less memorable. 

14. Spaghetti O-M-G.

Twitter / @_bushybrows

The kids in us really appreciate this snack. The adults that we’ve become, however, are kind of grossed out at the thought of eating uncooked Spaghetti-O’s.  

15. The most important meal of the day.

Twitter / @fbhughes

Cereal isn’t the same without milk. Luckily, this Twitter user was able to sneak both into the movies. We wonder if it was an early morning matinee or a late-night film? Either way, great snack choice.

Los Angeles Is Home To Some Of The Greatest Pupusas And Here’s Where You Can Find Them

At least once a month (the first of every month to be exact), Angelinos wonder why they’re paying $2,000 for a studio or sharing rooms with friends at the age of 28, and we will tell you why. La comida. The food in Los Angeles is abundant in Latinidad, and Salvadoreñas are only second to nearby México in repping Latin America in Los Angeles. 

Sure, you could move to  Denver and make a living wage, but you would be missing out on all these pupusas. Without further ado, here’s your guide to eating pupusas in Los Angeles, as told by the Latino people of Yelp.

1. La Pupusa Urban Eatery

“Good Salvi food with a twist,” Carlos M. shared on Yelp. With 4.5 stars and over 200 Yelp reviews, La Pupusa’s Urban Eatery is most famous for their Pupusa Mexicana which is topped with steak and served with pico de gallo, guacamole, sour cream, and cotija cheese.  

2. Sarita’s Pupuseria

Jose Raul’s love for exclamation points is nothing in comparison to his love for Sarita’s: “This is one of those hidden gems! This place is awesome! Being in the central market, you can always find small places that pack a big punch! This is Sarita’s Pupuseria!” For him, it was the revuelta that “takes the win! It was super savory I can’t even explain!”

3. Drive Thru Pupusas

With over one hundred five star reviews, these pupusas are as authentic as it gets this far from El Salvador. You should be warned, Drive Thru Pupusas is a food truck, not a drive-thru eatery. 

Pro tip from Maryem C., “Very nice people and super delicious pupusas. You can even call to place an order and not wait the dinner rush.”

4. Atlacatl Restaurant

This East Hollywood joint is one of those “nice hole in the wall” types of places, according to its reviewers. Everyone also says that it doesn’t look like a restaurant from the outside. It looks like a home, and when you walk in, it feels like home, too. Be warned, their pupusas are as delicious as they are humongous.

5. Cafe La Praviana

While they’re not as good as his mom’s pupusas, Orlando M. says, “This place has the best pupusas in the neighborhood, hands down! Well.. they are second place after the ones my mom makes lol.”

6. Los Molcajetes

Credit: joey_anne / Instagram

A Salvadoreña took to Yelp with favor for Los Molcajetes, saying “their pupusas taste great; comparable to the ones you can eat in El Salvador. They especially remind me of a popular pupuseria in Santa Tecla.” Heads up though, with authenticity comes to a leisurely meal. Don’t expect a quick meal.

7. La Numero Uno

This Hollywood spot is home to a delicious purple corn pupusa, and a Mexican-Salvadoran fusion. Enjoy both burritos and yucca alike!

8. Mi Bandera Pupusería

South Central is also home to authentic Salvadoreña food that is easy to pick up and take home, as well. Tiana D. gave us all an inside scoop saying, “the pupusas a so good, not greasy at all, good size, and are full inside. All good for the price. They give you enough curtido and salsa too. They mark the containers so you can know what pupusas are inside.”

9. Gloría’s Cafe

Before you even think anything of this Venice locale, listen up to Alicia: “I don’t normally like blended menus that feature more than one type of cuisine. Gloria’s does this (El Salvador and Mexican) but they’re both done well and authentically, so it’s chill.The most recent time I came here, I had the 7 Seas Soup. YOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! Sooooo freakin good.” There you have it.

10. The Pupusa Stand

Credit: Luis D. / Yelp

Listen. This Van Nuys food truck is doing it right and Carolina E. is here with the pep talk: “These pupusas are the best I’ve tasted outside of El Salvador. The wait can be a little long, depending on what time you get there. The location is in a church parking lot; they set up a grill and hand make the pupusas to order. They do not skimp on the fillings. There are a few chairs but they’re usually taken up by regulars or large families, it’s cash only but you can place your order before finding an atm if you forget. The ladies are extremely friendly and helpful. The freshness and deliciousness are worth the wait.”

11. Es Con Sabor West

Located in Palms, Jennifer O. gave it to us straight, “Food: this is the best place to buy pupusas on the west side PERIODT. They run about $3 a pop and are always fresh, bubbling over with cheese and goodness. My go to is pork and cheese which is fire, beans and cheese are a close second. The curtido is on point too.”

12. Jaragua

Jerome W.’s solution to feeling overwhelmed with all the pupusa choices is to “order them ALL and chow down. They’re all good.” Plus, the meal you see above is all vegan!

13. Pupusas

We’re keeping names simple here in Northridge. You can get a pupusa grande for just $2. Do not expect social media or anything other than knowing they’re on the corner of Reseda Blvd and Rayen street, and that you’ll just have to go and try it for yourself.

14. Las Casitas Grill

Leticia C. is a regular at Las Casitas and here’s how we know: “I love this spot and all I ever get is that Papusas and rice! It’s so good ! On Mondays and tuesdays, they have a special for 99 cents and I’m in there like swimwear they are quick and fresh every time ! I’m sure I’ll make my way around the menu eventually but those have me coming back every time ! Very authentic and delicious as hell !”

15. Pupusería La Favorita

Credit: Nana M. / Yelp

This South Gate adjacent pupusería really is a fan favorite. Nana M. says the “pupusas are big and delicious. I didn’t know I live near a pretty good Salvadorean restaurant. I give it 5 stars for the good price.” That’s right, each pupusa is $1.50. 

Take that, landlords.
