Your Grandmother Would Totally Approve Of These Vintage Pyrex Pattern Tattoos


Many of us start out our adult life with inexpensive dishes and cookware. As we continue to get better and better cookware, we realize how important it is to be efficient in the kitchen. Perhaps that is why our grandmother and mother enjoyed collecting quality cookware, such as CorningWare and Pyrex.


That cookware is durable and can stand up to extreme temperatures. They also have some very unique patterns and have become somewhat iconic as they continue to age.

In fact, some of the higher-quality vintage glass cookware is now worth a small fortune. If you inherited some of these dishes from your grandmothers, you might find some collectors that are willing to pay you a lot of money to part with the collection.

If you think that it is extreme to spend thousands of dollars on a casserole dish, you probably have not yet seen these new tattoos. They are inspired by Pyrex and some enthusiasts have been using up some of their skin real estate to get this unique ink.

You might be surprised to learn that getting tattoos of these vintage patterns is not really anything new. It is, however, trending at the moment.

“I can’t believe it has been an entire year since getting this tattoo, I still get compliments on it all of the time :),” Matt Macomber wrote underneath a photo of his body art on Flickr in 2012.

Glenda Holcomb uploaded a picture of her floral tattoo on Pinterest several years ago.

“My Spring Blossom Pyrex Tattoo, with matching nails using Vivid Lacquer Stamping Plate VL030, and of course, my Spring Blossom Loaf Pan!” she wrote in the description.

Instagram is now the place to post your Pyrex tattoos. People have been sharing them regularly as they add this style of artwork to their body.

“This is ON ME! The wonderful @aliciaetattoo gave me this adorable little hen in a Pyrex teacup on the first day of the convention,” one person wrote on the caption of a photo in which they’re showing off their pyrex teacup tattoo.

Another user on Instagram shared a new tattoo inspired by her “favorites print.”

Some people are passionate about the glassware, which is why they choose these tattoos but others do so for sentimental reasons.

@hellfirefemme, an Instagram user said she got a “mixing bowl of pie” like her grandmother used to make on her arm as a tattoo. She considers it a tribute.

Jamie Hubbert chose to get her tattoo after the mod kitchen pattern. Hubbard is a teacher so she felt the apple was a good choice since it is a symbol for knowledge.

This stack of patterned Pyrex bowls is tattooed on the arm of one man. He did it because his wife loves the cookware. The gooseberry print was chosen because it is her favorite.

I would call this true love.

Here are some more Pyrex tattoos for your perusal:
