Tattooed 4D Fish - Wordless Wednesday
Some people in Singapore seem to think that keeping certain fish brings prosperity. Qian Hu Fish Farm imported many Molly fish from Thailand. Each fish has a single-digit number (ranging from 0 to 9) tattooed on their white bodies. Why? Punters who want winning numbers for the 4D lottery are snapping them up!
Before the fishes are tattooed, they are sedated so they will not feel any pain. The process for tattooing fish was not much different from tattooing a human being. Needles are used to insert pigments into the skin.
Each 4D fish costs S$3.00 (around US$2.15). A regular Molly fish only costs S$2.00 (around US$1.45). The tattoos last for 3 to 4 months.
Is tattooing a fish a necessary procedure? Why hurt other living things just for quick monetary gains?
