    No do not ever censor yourself, It is interesting to observe the delicate human sensiblities when it comes to suffering and pain from either a first person or third person perspective, Art is what you make of it whatever you create do not create a piece of shit work to create to 100% or destroy whichever is your choice.

    I believe that art and any other form of creativity ends where suffering begins. If someone kills or harms any animal (including humans, and in this case I could make an exception if a person agrees to some kind of violence or whatnot) is committing a crime, not creating anything that can be called art. A good example is an artist who starved a dog to death as an "artistic performance".
    I don't believe that any blasphemous or offensive material should be censored as long as the above mentioned rule is respected.

    Exposición N° 1
    Guillermo Vargas' exposition included the burning of 175 pieces of crack cocaine and an ounce of marijuana while the Sandinista anthem played backwards. The work also included an emaciated dog tied to a wall by a length of rope with "Eres Lo Que Lees" ("You Are What You Read") written on the wall in dog food. The work attracted controversy when it was reported that the dog had starved to death as part of Vargas's work.

    That's a great example of what I would never call art, just as I wouldn't call Ed Gein an artist or a designer...

    There should be a law that if you are doing any sort of ART of suffering, it should only be done on YOURSELF with no exceptions.

    I would also add that it's acceptable to have other people involved as long as they are grown up, responsible for themselves and agree to be a part of it.

    That's not art, that's cruelty.

    You don't know anything about art if you think those aren't often one and the same.
