Chef Tats: In Their Own Words

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 fifth and final chef is Carlos Guerrero of Central Market. Below, hear this young chef talk about what inspired him to get a life-size 12-inch Shun chef's knife tattooed on his upper arm.
