The Lee Burnett Hong Kong advertising agency came up with a unique anti-whaling campaign, “Greenpeace Tattoos.” The bodies of a man and woman are covered with tats of dark water, whales, clouds and other images. Also used are particularly disturbing Buddha-like images slicing whales open and biting them with their teeth.
Japan’s whaling industry continues to be at odds with many countries because endangered whale meat, sold by Japanese whalers, has been found commercially. This doesn’t include their brew-ha-ha with animal rights activists who want the killing of all whales to stop, whether they are endangered or not.
The tag-line for the Greenpeace Tattoos against whaling is “Not all traditions deserve to be preserved. Put an end to whaling in Japan.” I couldn’t have said it better myself.
