"[Gaga Stigmata has] very modern, edgy photography to free flowing, urban narratives without censure to analytical essays, et cetera—like Gaga, imagination without ... limits. And the beauty is that anyone can submit work to the site, so artists and writers from all over the [world] have joined this experiment." -The Declaration.org

"Since March 2010, [Gaga Stigmata] has churned out the most intense ongoing critical conversation on [Lady Gaga]."

If God is a DJ: He’ll Play the Revelations Sound-bite

By Yi-Jun Ian 

Inspired by biblical imagery and centered on religion, Yi-Jun Ian created this 20-piece wearable art collection for a Fash Mob event at The Butter Factory in Singapore. The collection heavily incorporates imagery from Gaga’s Born This Way album. With pieces including a red-veiled crown of insect-legged thorns and eyewear with blood-stained nails embedded in bleeding corks, Ian sought to establish the context of spiritual war that occurs amidst our everyday lives, whether out in the open or hiding in plain sight; to champion the idea of fighting for personal faith over blindly accepting religious dogma.
