Bringing Home The Bacon

Wim Delvoye a Belgian artist (who is a vegetarian) tattoo's pigs on his farm outside of Bejing as an Art Project... and before you think it's mean the pigs aren't killed they get to live their life out on the farm as tattooed art saving them from being slaughtered.  They are unconscious (from anesthesia) while being tattooed so they don't feel any pain from the tattooing.   

Where's the fashion tie-in you ask?  Meet Louise the Louis Vuitton piggie who didn't go to market.
