Inside: Waffle tattoo ideas that Leslie Knope would be proud of.
If you are a fan of Parks and Rec, you know about Leslie Knope and her deep appreciation for waffles. We’ve seen it since episode 3 of season one…the girl loves her waffles!
Parks and Rec have a massive fanbase, and similar to the cult classic show, The Office, this show is shot in a documentary style. It essentially follows the employees of the parks and rec department, who slowly turn from coworkers to friends, to family.
The best part about this show is the witty humor and the well-written characters.
One of which is Leslie Knope(played by Amy Poehler). Leslie is the unnamed leader of the pack, or at least she tries to be. No one has a heart quite like hers. She is dedicated to bettering her community and being there for her friends.
It should come as no surprise to you that this character of Leslie itself has quite the following, and what happens when someone is a proper fan of something? They get themed tattoos of course!
So for Leslie, one of the best ways to pay homage to her without putting her hold face on your body(although there is nothing wrong with that either), is to get her favorite food instead.
Every fan knows that her number one food is…..Waffles!
Waffle Tattoo Meaning
I believe that each person can have a Leslie-themed waffle tattoo that is significant to them in their own way. Perhaps the character saw them through a really hard time in their life, etc.
In general Leslie’s waffles stand for being a hard worker, putting others first, and also carrying yourself with lots of charisma. This is how Mrs. Knope goes through the world and I have never seen anyone happier. It has been years since I watched the show and yet I can still remember her so clearly.
Knope Waffle Tattoo Cost
The cost of your Knope waffle tattoo depends on how big you want your art piece. Also if you decide that you want it colored or with extra detail these things all play a part in the final cost. Bigger pieces naturally cost more than smaller pieces. So if you want a big tattoo just know that the price will be big, and you may have to save up.
And honestly, I find that saving up for something helps me to appreciate it more when I finally get it.
One of the best ways to be able to cut out the middleman is to just have a consultation with your tattoo artist. They are the only ones who actually will be able to give you an exact cost. Typically tattoo artists are paid an hourly rate so they can essentially quote you how long you think your piece will take and they’ll be able to do it that way.
How much will a waffle tattoo hurt?
In terms of pain, the larger the tattoo the longer you will be in the chair and the more it is going to hurt. The smaller and simpler it is, the smaller the pain will be. Sensing a pattern?
I will say though, that if you really would like to avoid as much pain as possible then you should probably pick a spot that has more softness and no bone right underneath(like the hands and the feet). The nerve endings in those places are what end up causing the really rough pain throughout this.
If it is still too much, ask your artist if they have any numbing solution, this stuff is amazing.
