Branded Pigs

Van Mensvoort
July 8th 2009

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.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
