The art of Dietrich Wegner manages to be both mystifying and unsettling all at once. Creating freakishly realistic sculptures depicting babies with tricked-out tattoos, Dietrich Wegner is creating lots of buzz amongst critics.

Entitled 'Cumulous Brand,' this series of inked-out infants is a representation of the human identity and how it evolves from birth to death. The multicolored tattoos that Dietrich Wegner chose for her infantile pieces range from logos to random markings as a nod to consumerism.
