1/16/2003: Dead man's tattoos
Beletseri Thursday Jan 16 02:07 PM
I"m astounded that this is legal. Wasn't there a big flack in England about some artist perserving the body of a friend of his as art?

Not familiar with anyone in England, but it is similar to an artist who "stole" body parts in Germany. This page somewhat covers that issue, but they seem to address it legally as just a matter of theft versus ownership.

He might have saved a lot more money and time if he'd just bought a camera!

Reprints are never as valuable as the original.

Like all great art.. death brings value.

I'm leaving my heirs a bag of toenail clippings.

I'm just going to leave some DNA behind so that the Raelians can clone me. Future generations are in a shitload of trouble.

When I was in college, one of the charter pilots had to take someone up to dump some remains out over a field. He was flying a 172, and the passenger (doing the dumping) managed to get ashes all over the inside of the plane since it came back in the window. It never seemed to affect how the plane flew, though.

I would like to be around 50 years from now for the Antique Roadshow when one of the grandkids brings that in.

I'm trying to figure out what is on the shirt of junior. Looks like some kind of flags.
