Tattooed PigHard to believe how many tattooed pig stories I run across without even searching for them! – this is an old story I found from 2005 -about a tattoo artist working on a live pig at an organic art center outside Beijing Friday Aug. 19, 2005. Artists at the Art Farm tattoo anesthetized pigs to create works which are expected to be displayed in galleries once the pigs eventually die. The pigs, which are tattooed with designs ranging from the Louis Vuitton logo to Russian prison tattoos, are expected to live a longer than normal life since their increased value protects them from being killed for food.
