Is this art or is it being disrespectful?



I respect one’s right to express themselves however I am troubled by this. Call me old fashioned but it’s a bit like playing with your food before you eat it.

I'm with you, Steve. I've seen images of those pigs around a fair bit, and I'm just not comfortable. This is simply unnecessary art (sport) for human fun.

I was revolted by it at MONA, not least because the artist kept the pigs alive for years after their tattooing, in abominable concrete cells, and said this prolongation was an improvement in their welfare!

That a vegan can exploit animals so makes me cry.

Way not cool. If tattoos hurt me, then it hurts them too, unnecessarily.
