Belgian tattoo artist Wim Delvoye has an unusual art form. Working in Beijing, he tattoos live pigs. The work is expected to be displayed in art galleries once the pigs die. Tattoo art is well overdue an exhibit in an art gallery, but is the abuse worth it? Obviously the pigs are anesthetized while the tattoo process is done- but how can one keep a tattoo on an animal from becoming infected?
