SAN FRANCISCO, CA - AUGUST 24: Suspension artist and LUSH Cosmetics employee Alice Newstead hangs from a scaffold by shark hooks that she had pierced into her skin during a demonstration against the shark fin trade at a LUSH Cosmetic store on August 24, 2011 in San Francisco, California. As part of a LUSH Cosmetic's global campaign against shark finning, suspension artist Alice Newstead had her skin pierced with shark hooks and suspended herself from a scaffolding. California State Assembly Bill 376 has been introduced and would ban the sale, purchase or possession of shark fins in California starting on Jan. 1, 2013. Those against the bill complain that it targets a cultural institution of Chinese citizens who eat shark fin soup. (Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images) less
