Artist Dietrich Wegner recently released a series of sculptures depicting rubber babies donning enough tattoos to deem them worthy of joining biker gang. This time around, Dietrich Wegner is at it again; except this time, the babies are real.

As a follow up to the rubber sculptures, artist Dietrich Wegner has shot a series of photographs with real branded babies. Though the infants are real, the tattoos are not.

Implications - Branding has become one of the most popular visuals that many city dwellers see on a daily basis, even those who are young enough to know what it means. Children continue to be the target of many advertisers, and as such, businesses that speak out against it will gain recognition for their efforts.
