Beijing Dealers use Lasers to Tattoo Fish
BEIJING – PET shops in a city in southwest China are offering fish tattooed with patterns and lucky characters intended to bring their owners good fortune and happiness.
A dealer said lasers were used to tattoo the fish. An ordinary parrot fish sells for just 10 yuan (S$2.16) while a tattooed one goes for at least 25 yuan.
While some shoppers interviewed by the paper said the idea of tattooed fish was novel, others thought it was cruel. http://www.straitstimes.com/Breaking%2BNews/Tech%2Band%2BScience/Story/STIStory_416247.html
