Megumi Igarashi who works under the name Rokudenashiko (which roughly translates as “good-for-nothing girl”, according to The Guardian) has created her very own genital art by building a kayak from a 3D printing of her nether regions.

Megumi created what she calls a “pussy boat” in order to break down taboos about female genitalia in Japan, but was arrested after sending the 3D print data to over 30 people who contributed to a crowd-funding project in exchange for the data.

This is pretty ridiculous as Japan has an annual penis festival where candy, carved vegetables, illustrations, decorations and even furniture is made to resemble the penis. Google it, it’s kinda weird. The hypocrisy inherent in this highlights the fact that the vagina is still a taboo in Japanese culture.

Artists like Rokudenashiko are fighting a necessary, if somewhat bizarre, fight. "Even when a TV station asked me to be on their show, they wouldn’t dare to let me say DECO-MAN because 'MAN' is from the taboo word 'Manko'," she says on her crowd-funding blog post.
