louise - the tattooed pig

Louise (now sadly deceased and taxidermied) was raised, fed and tattooed at Wim Delvoye's Art Farm in China (where animal welfare regulations turn a blind eye to tattooing - sidethought: is branding still allowed in the west?)

Other pigs have more classical tattoo motifs, Disney characters, or brand figureheads.

I'm not sure if David Lachapelle had seen lil' Louise when he shot this.

I think you mean "classical tattoo motifs".

What a waste of time, even though it looks great and is thought-provoking -- i.e. true art.
