We've all seen or even know people who are addicted to body modification - from multiple piercings to tattoos and much more. But it seems some folks are taking this trend much too far and inflicting it on their pets. You can find everything from people who paint their cats, to those who pierce their fish and tattoo their dogs. If body modification is a form of self-expression then shouldn't the decision to get a tattoo or a piercing be left with the individual? Even when it comes to our pets?
