Braille Tattoos

  1. Hey thank you for sharing that! You have excellent taste, the photos you presented are interesting and beautiful, and do a credit to the art form. It never even occurred to me before that I could use my clothing as a sun stentcil – learn something new everyday! Thanks again!

    I mean, won’t the eyes burst after the piercing?
    and what about they tongue? They probably can’t eat or drink for a month.
    Are those real or computer graphics interference?

    1. Tongue: Maybe
      Eye: Yes, though it’s not a tattoo. It’s just ink filling the upper layer of the skin.
      Tanning: Yes. Cheaper way is just use acrilic paint then get a spray tan. Go home then wash it off.

  3. These are great – I totally love the ruler (way to make your tattoo useful). The sun tattoo is also pretty fantastic. You could have a new tattoo every few weeks if you wanted to.

  4. You wouldn?¡¥t believe it but I?¡¥ve wasted all day digging for some articles about this. You?¡¥re a lifesaver, it was an excellent read and has helped me out to no end. Cheers

      And exactly who are you to decide that? Last time I checked, the owner of the pig decided what to do with it, whether it’s to eat it at xmas or tattoo it.

      Besides, they are pretty nifty as identification. Without them I really can’t tell a pig from another.

    2. Pigs have some of the toughest skin of any animals, and don’t feel the tattoo as strongly. And any animal that’s getting tattooed is under anesthesia while it’s happening – something I wish I could experience…I would have way more tattoos.

      These pigs are also kept as pets instead of going to slaughter, and when they die – of natural causes – the skin is kept as art. I think that’s way more human than being raised for slaughter.

      1. Actually, I heard Wim Delvoye speak a few years ago. He said that the pigs were placed under anesthesia for the tattoo procedures. They could only be put under for short periods of time (30 minutes), so the tattoos took months to complete. After the exhibition the pigs were given a home on a farm, but unfortunately caught a disease and did not survive. The skins are exhibited.
