Instagram food artists show off their multicolored, mouth-watering creations.

Sushi is already well-known around the world for being a very visually-appealing dish. All the different colors of fish contrasting with the bright white rice and dark green seaweed make it just as much of a feast for your eyes as your stomach.

But now one Instagram trend is taking sushi as art to the next level: rainbow sushi. Sushi-lovers all over are using a variety of methods make their bite-size maki morsels as colorful as possible.

Here are some of the best ones we’ve seen so far:

▼ Sushi, you were already pretty before,
but now none of the other food even stands a chance.

▼ I wish I had a pair of virtual chopsticks to just reach in and pluck those away.

▼ Mayonnaise: making everything tastier since pretty much always.

▼ A closeup of one rainbow sushi that uses
multicolored ingredients instead of just coloring the rice.

▼ Some of the most accurate rainbow sushi we’ve seen yet.

▼ Is it “rainbow” if it’s only pink and yellow?
My heart says no, but my stomach says yes.

▼ The combination of multicolored rice and ingredients
makes for a very nice- OM NOM NOM!

▼ For those who don’t want to separate their colored rice into groups,
but would rather have them be free to mingle.

recipe for making them using natural colorings.

If you want to see more rainbow sushi, then check out the hashtag #rainbowsushi on Instagram. Just fair warning though: it may result in you suddenly going out and spending lots of money on Japanese food.

And if you want to see rainbow food gone wrong, then take a gander at Hong Kong’s colorful grilled cheese sandwiches. There’s just something not quite as appetizing about multicolored cheese….
