Queer Artist Gets ‘Make America Great Again’ Tattooed Around His Anus
Queer performance artist Abel Azcona is making a bold political statement, though you'd have to be very interested in receiving the message.
Azcona just had "Make America Great Again" tattooed around his anus. (You can see the NSFW tattoo here.)
“I always worked my body as a weapon and a political tool,” Azcona said. “For more than 12 years I have been performing political and social performances and exhibitions that have led me to jail, detention or death threats. I believe in the empowerment of the body and of the pain. The anus is a pleasure zone for many people, and an area of sin for others. I think demystifying what the anus is, and writing a fascist political motto like that in my anus, is a clearly critical and subversive action.”
“I believe that all of us who consider ourselves different should never be silent,” Azcona continued. “We must attack. We must use our body as a weapon of empowerment. We are faggots, women, Mexicans, blacks and different. And we are brave. Art is the greatest critical, social and political weapon I know.”
