There's nothing more American than fast food. Fast food is ingrained in our society and everyone has their favorite fast food establishment. Personally, I'm a Chipotle addict and I'm a dedicated customer two to three times a week. For others, they love McDonald's, Wendy's, Subway or Burger King. Take a look at 60 of our favorite fast food tattoos from talented artists around the world in the gallery below, then let us know your favorite menu item mentioned below in the comments section on social media.
