Pigs can expect to be branded, but one farm has turned the process into an art form, decorating them from head to toe with tattoos, the Daily Mail reports.
Crowds are flocking to Art Farm China in Yangzhen, Beijing, where Belgian artist Wim Delvoye displays his colorful sows and boars. One super-trendy porker even features a Louis Vuitton logo -- which presumably quickens the process on the handbag production line. Others sport tattoos inspired by patterns found on Russian prison inmates.
Animal rights activists complain that the pigs are suffering unnecessarily and are being abused for improper commercial gain. They also strongly object to a controversial "adopt a pig" scheme that allows sponsors to have an animal stuffed, get a tattooed hide to hang on a wall, or even have it stretched over canvas. （点击《每日邮报》查看原文）
