This week's feature, Chef Tats, focuses on a new breed of chefs in the restaurant industry: those who are vibrantly and stunningly decorated with ink. No more starched white chef's jackets -- these chefs are young, brash and have a story to tell, both with their food and with their bodies.
We've been taking a closer look at some of the chefs who were featured in our cover story and a few who weren't, to let them tell the stories behind their tattoos in their own words.
Our fourth chef is the executive chef at Soma Sushi. In addition to being a fan of Psychopathic Records and Insane Clown Posse, Jason Hauck is also a master of modern sushi and Japanese fusion cuisine. Below, you can see pictures of Chef Hauck and his food as he talks about what inspired him to get the elaborate tattoo on his right calf.
