Anthropophagy is Love

Anthropophagy means cannibalism. In the past, various groups in Europe, the Amazon Basin, and Fiji have been documented to have practiced cannibalism.

Autosarcophagy is self-cannibalism. Apparently some people enjoy how they taste. Literally. Some may do this for body modification such as eating their own skin. Autovampirism, or drinking one’s blood, also falls under autosarcophagy. "Who would want to eat themselves?" you may be wondering. Well, just ask Danish artist Marco Evaristti. On January 13, 2007, he hosted a dinner party for some friends and served  agnolotti pasta as the main dish. On top of the pasta was a meatball made out of the artist’s own fat that was removed by liposuction earlier in the year.
