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.

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.

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

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...

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.

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!

I'd guess 6 months is a fair bet.
