This is customer loyalty at its finest. Stian Ytterdahl from Lorenskog, Norway, will never ever forget what he had for lunch at McDonald’s last Monday, because he had the receipt details tattooed on his right arm. Asked by his friends to choose between sticking a Barbie up his ass and getting inked, he chose the latter (as I would probably too). The dare was supposedly a punishment for being too smitten with the ladies (kids these days).

Don’t go chuckling off just yet, though this curious-looking ‘creature’ looks a bit silly, it actually has deep spiritual roots. The Buddhist Bug Project is the brainchild of Cambodian artist Anida Yoeu Ali, in which she explores her identity as a born and raised Khmer Muslim and a converted Buddhist. The 30 metre saffron-coloured worm-like […]
Wiry Limbs, Paper Backs is a series by artist Terry Border, in which he attaches metal wires to books, seemingly giving it life and taking on the personalities of the stories within them.

This is why we can’t have nice things. The Drunken Satyr, an early 19th century sculpture was given an untimely amputation after a student attempted to snap a selfie while sitting on its lap. The school security then got the shock of their lives – and possibly their careers – after discovering the ‘rehabilitation work’ the following morning at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milan. CCTV footage even shows the bright perpetrator sitting on the valuable artwork’s lap when it crumbled and shattered against the floor.

He takes anatomical, botanical, and other biological parts and recombines them into figures that are both familiar and alien to us. His work range in size, from 5 inches to 6 feet.

The full-colour tattoo features characters like the Dark Knight himself, Robin, Catwoman, Penguin, The Joker, and the Riddler. It took Hopkins around 40 hours of work to finish the entire thing, but was entirely worth it as he won the ‘Best Large Colour’ award at the Titanic Ink Tattoo Convention in Southampton, UK.

It’s Not What It Seems is a series by artist Hikaru Cho that involves food, art, and deception. The talented Japanese artist applies acrylic paints to transform food into other kinds of food.
