What are these people doing? Of course! They are tattooing a pig with the pattern of the luxury bag brand Louis Vuitton. For those who want something more special than the mundane poached tiger pelt to decorate your home.

The tattooed pigs are a project by Belgian artist Wim Delvoye, who says his pigs are treated humanely and they are given sedatives before being tattooed. You can buy the tattooed pigs live or purchase their tattooed skins.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
