7/5/2006: Pig tattooing



thunder5 sends along this link, which looks like a forum in Brazil documenting a Chinese practice. This here culture is world-wide! Well, let the Cellar IotD be the English language documentarian.

Looks like they are practicing on the pigs. Practice makes perfect.



Sundae  Wednesday Jul 5 11:37 AM

Pig IoTDs have previously filled me with nothing bu delight. Not 100% sure about this one....

I may have to send the picture of the Louis Vuitton pigs to a few friends claiming it is a new design range - see if I convince them they're this season's must have.

Think how relieved they'll be when they realise they're just foreign fakes.



capnhowdy  Wednesday Jul 5 12:52 PM

The one on top looks like it has a nasty skin condition. Guess that's what you get for wallowing in shit all day.



Trilby  Wednesday Jul 5 01:21 PM

I'd like a tattoo of a hog on a hog.



Get it? A hog on a hog---get it?


Ah-hahahahahahahahaha!

i crack myself up.



Elspode  Wednesday Jul 5 01:25 PM

The pig looks drugged, man.



Jordon  Wednesday Jul 5 01:50 PM

This way they get more guys with Harleys.



capnhowdy  Wednesday Jul 5 01:57 PM

other interesting pig tattoos:

star of David

USDA inspection stamp

Instead of MOM.... SISTER



Shawnee123  Wednesday Jul 5 01:59 PM

Man, Charlotte would be pissed.



Kitsune  Wednesday Jul 5 03:08 PM

Nothing worse than seeing asian characters tattooed on a pig. I mean, the pig probably doesn't even know what they mean and got them just to look cool...



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Jul 5 04:19 PM

The average pig in China lives 6 months.
These pigs, being "art objects", will die of old age then their skins will become wall art. So, he's actually doing them a favor.......in theory.



Shawnee123  Wednesday Jul 5 04:54 PM

Now I'm wondering how long the "average" pig (which doesn't include Wilbur who was "some pig") lives here in the US, or worldwide for that matter!



rkzenrage  Wednesday Jul 5 04:56 PM

I'd tattoo the cuts of meat all over it.

I'd guess 6 months is a fair bet.

Will make some pretty footballs....



milkfish  Wednesday Jul 5 08:38 PM

I am surprised nobody mentioned Artemis the winged pig.



footfootfoot  Wednesday Jul 5 08:47 PM

I was just about to when you beat me to it.



Sperlock  Wednesday Jul 5 09:44 PM

And not one "Some Pig" anywhere to be found.

jinx  Wednesday Jul 5 10:24 PM

But there is pig in soup.



xant  Thursday Jul 6 12:15 AM

Actually seems odd that this practice isn't universal. I can't think of a better way for a tattoo artist to learn how to tattoo.



rkzenrage  Thursday Jul 6 12:17 AM

How bout' tha' Koran on one side and the Torah on tha' other?

Brianna - Gro-o-o-o-a-a-a-nnnnn ....

However .. If you click on the original site link, the bottom pic shows a pig with the winged H-D emblem tattoed on it .. is that close enough?? ..

Now .. what disturbs me is how much pain those poor pigs are being subjected to? .. where's PETA when ya need 'em??? .....

Oh, yes ... that's right ... they're currently running semi-naked around Spain, in support of banning Bullfighting ..


xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Jul 6 04:35 AM

The vet puts the pigs out for two hours every third day. Not much pain.
I don't think PETA is real big in China.

No but that is their distant future....all that shit. Hang onto your hats guys, it's going to be a bumpy ride. Welcome to the world.

hi!
it's belgian artist, Wim Delvoye.
you can see a part of his work here-->:
http://www.wimdelvoye.be/

his work is, to me, very funny and humourous!

he has also build a "cloaka" machine, a machine that produce shit!
you can see the work here--<:
http://www.cloaca.be/

the pigs are safe and "asleep" when tattoed.
sorry for my bad english



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Jul 11 10:51 AM

Welcome to the Cellar, Sunny.
Nice clear pictures in that link. I read in one of the internet stories that the pigs get to go out and play in the grass when Delvoye visits the farm. I hope that long grass doesn't mean they don't get out of the concrete pens very often.

The "cloaka" is hard to call art, more like the invention of a mad scientist.

Oh, and your English is fine.

I particularly like the Disneyesque signature.
