Hi, my name is Marcus
Hi everyone! I’d like to introduce myself to you as a member of this great blog. My name is Marcus and I am a lover of food & tattoos. I manage the awesome tattoo shop State Of Grace in San Jose’s Japantown. I had the honor of being asked to work there with all the amazing artists and now I have the honor of being invited to be part of this awesome blog! I can’t believe how fortunate I’ve been!
I love all types of food and am willing to try anything once. Although my favorite cuisine would be Vietnamese. The combination of textures and flavors within single dishes are compelling to me. So in the coming weeks I hope to share my recipes, food adventures, interviews, and random thoughts with you. Cheers!
