Discovery Unveils Giant Tattooed Statues for 'London Ink'

This super-sized swimmer is a part of an unusual publicity stunt for 'London Ink,' a new Discovery Channel reality series. The Discovery Channel placed two giant statues in London to promote the series; the gallery above depicts the first statue, which is placed near London Bridge and features a swimmer.

The 46-foot long swimmer is made of polystyrene and has been hand-painted to look just like human skin. The second 'London Ink' statue depicts a woman attempting to get into a photo booth, and it's located at Victoria Station.
