Nine Animals That Are Colored In Strange Hues

Here comes the pigs with tattoos

Yes you heard it right. Wim Delvoye has been putting tattoos on pigs from the 190s. This was apparently a project that was started in the Art Farm in China as there are lesser restrictions there with regard to the handling of animals than the west. In the year 2005 Danny Devos and Delvoye actually stayed several months in the farm while managing, rebuilding and reorganizing. The many tattoos here include the traditional like flags, lions to new age things like Louis Vuitton. Once the pigs are no more, the skin is taken and used to display the art.

Panda dog

The Panda dog is the invention of Kensuke Hirakawa who is a beautician and also a former owner of a pet store. He found Colombo, a Maltese cross poodle that had been abandoned and that too after the tooth had been removed. Add to that the dog had a stiff hind leg and eyes that were stained with tears. The use of hair dye that was safe for Puppies  converted the dog to look like a panda bear. The addition of dark circles to the white dog under the eye, hind and front legs as well as strips on the back completed the transformation.
