Hmm...I hope those poor pigs didn't die just so that guy could stuff and tattoo them. This is definitely one of the more interesting sorts of art I've seen in awhile.

Looking at his website, I realize that he tattoos live pigs also...I have to wonder about the kind of person who says to himself, "What that pig could really use is a tattoo of Louis Vuitton and Jesus."

Down and Out Chic said...

oh man, i have no words! oh wait, yes i do, "hehehehehe."

Chessa! said...

this is so creepy. i love tattoos on people but this freaks me out a bit.

Alicia said...

whoa...seriously whoa....i love pigs and i love tattoos...but the two of them together...kinda freaking me out! and what's with the disney princesses??? that's funny!

Shelley said...

as strange...and sort of gross as those are... I think the work is great. Love the Ariel piggie! I hope you are having a good day! Painting the still not completely fixed bathroom today.

Stephanie said...

I am glad the pigs got their revenge: H1N1

Annie said...

these are a bit too strange for me...

Caroline said...

So awful...yet incredibly thought provoking. This is why I love art!

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

I Love those!! And what a great pet. No mess!

blueviolet said...

No way! No thanks!

Hanako66 said...

bananas. said...

The Peach Tart said...

Yelena R. said...

Horrifying....hahaha

diane said...

Beautiful.....but a little sad.

...love Maegan said...

omg Jesus! ...I can't imagine having to sit there and tattoo dead pig skin. but they're cool.

Diane said...

haha this guy is on my list this week for sss. wish i could get a tattoo from him!!!

DesBisoux said...

wonder what that dude's on because i love tattoos and i love pigs but first of all stuff pigs?? and then tattooed??
last question, did anyone buy one?

me melodia said...

Everytime I spot these I always get bothered. Not that it's not well executed or smart.. but pig skin grosses me out.
Smart concept and presentation..
Taxidermy without fur weirds me out.. IDKW

;)

Brown Girl said...

Um, I don't get it. So they are dead. And stuffed. And then tattooed? This is just odd to me.

Clorivak said...

These are so BAD-ASS!!! hilarious,for some reason tatoos and pigs make sense..haha. ...I tend to agree with melodie, pig skin is a bit icky-time.

Kristin said...

Totally creeped out. FREAKY!

Elizabeth Marie said...

Hmmm...Willlburrrrr....not a fan, not a fan, I'm scared.

Happy fucking Monday. :)

Simply Mel said...

Now, you do realize I am a huge fan of BABE, so this post REALLY disturbs me! ;(

Caroline said...

I was going to have pork chops for dinner. So much for that plan.

Toothfairy said...

*sigh* why do they have to put LV sign on everything that exist? :P


it's not that I'm against LV, as I have a few items myself, but does it HAVE to be EVERYWHERE?! They're not even sparing the pigs... haha



Have a great week ahead!
*loves*

Savvy Gal said...

unique yet so disturbing to me as well.

Phoenix said...

This is definitely a more risque and interesting approach to art...some people will focus more on the fact that the pigs are dead, some more on the fact that they are tattooed.

The combo works well... I don't think I'd want one hanging out in my living room as an art piece, though. :)

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

I have to say that it is certainly different and a form of art you don't see often. Well...never!

Liz said...

Haha bizarre!

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Oink!
Saw the documentary on them on Ovation TV...I was amazed how they pampered these pigs with sunscreen each day... ~Great new week babe!

jeannie said...

wow, how cool yet disturbing...

Tiffany said...

oh, I'm kinda scared by these... and what's up with the LV tattoos?

Felicia|DaLipstickBandit said...

the pigs have tramp stamps

jennifer from pittsburgh said...

I'm going to skirt all the pork belly futures jokes and just hit the fat...It takes a lot, A LOT, to freak me out, but this is just a wee bit too weird ;)

kys said...

Creepy! Are you going to post creepy freakies up till Halloween?

anotherfishinthesea said...

im gonna go out on a limb here and call this a bit creepy...

The Seeker said...

OMG so weird, are you sure it's not painted??? LOL

Luv

xoxo

TERI REES WANG said...

We are all Pigs!

Katie said...

It's beautiful artwork. But on a dead pig :-( nooo!

Fashion Court said...

omg, louise! haha

Ela said...

Whoa LV bacon...not sure I could afford that, not with the way I eat bacon :)

p.s. Eek Cali wedding in August! My poor drolly, that must've been torture! And yes, my weekend was creepy crawly free :) Hope yours was too!

Mary-Laure said...

Kind of creepy and hilarious - as long as the pigs were not hurt in the process...

Ela said...

I heart you and your blog. I've got a feeling I'd heart you when you're 90 too :) You'd be the best "crotchety" old lady ever. And don't worry drolly, I can count on less than 2 hands the years you got on me :)

alissa said...

ooo creepy. i hope they were just old piggys that died happily - and would now be pumped to get some tattoos:)

Kaz said...

People are strange :-)

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Poor dead piggies.

Sam said...

Goodness me! I wish they weren't real dead pigs but ceramic or something...

beckyxoxo said...

wow cool pigs ! are they real or fake ? because it really disturbs me if they're real . eww . poor pigs .

thereddeer said...

ummmm okay - bit strange. If I had to pick a fave it would have to be the last one.

Iva said...

omg...these are ridiculously awesome! ....I still feel bad though for the piggies...oik oik oik :)

Alina said...

Poor little inked piggies.

Jenni said...

... oh the things people do. Seriosly stuff pigs? Woah.

Jyun said...

Somehow this is just wrong.

Taxy said...

Maybe this is wrong, but, ask yoursefl: "Do I want an amateur tattoo, or I want to be tattooed by someone who knows what he's doing?"
I think it's better for tattoo masters to start practicing on something that's simular to a human skin, and that would lead them to perfection, than to ruin someone's body x)
