Are you Trypophobic?


#1


Does this picture bother you?


#2


or this one.


#3


I'm literally itching all over from looking at these pics...


#4

Ugh.

My skin is crawling and I feel like I have bugs running all over my scalp.


#5

want to throw up... a lot... gonna go throw up... why? why would you do this?


#6

and of course I had to google more pictures... I might not sleep or eat for a while :frowning:


#7

The finger nail one kind of bothers me, but I like the butterfly one, and the lizard one also.


#8

I feel like I'm asking a stupid question but are those real holes in a person's body?


#9

Pretty sure pic 1 is just very clever tattoos. Looks a bit creepy but I wouldn't call it a phobia; we just tend to dislike big holes in tissue since we associate it with maggots etc. The same pattern on a stone wouldn't bother me.


#10

yeah i thought you ones on the arms and legs were probably fake, but those finger ones look so real...


#11

WTF!!! I thought they were stickers. Now that I look at the pictures again I am crept out.


#12

I think it's just a regular picture of a person, with the holes photoshopped on. The third one is a lamprey mouth photoshopped onto fingers, I would assume the other two are more or less the same.


#13

I did an image search the most disgusting pictures are the images of trench foot or anything that look like that was a result of disease. Since the holes in the fingers are flesh colored it freaks me out also.

Edit: I want to be unsubscribed from this thread.


#14

phew, that makes me feel better. The fingers still look totally horrific though


#15

There are some hideous images out there, ones that no mortal man should ever see of his own free will. I put up a direct link to one such place, but the mods took it down before it could unleash horror and degradation on the pure, innocent minds of T-Nation's forums.

(For reference, search Encyclopedia Dramatica for it's "Offended" section.) I will warn that it is the most terrifyingly hellish webpage I've ever seen. If it's any consolation, the only picture that really shook me was the close-up of a spider, I have to live with knowing that it was the ONLY picture there that got me. Venture forth at your own risk.


#16

I will never forgive you for what I just saw.

I gave the necessary precautions, it is all on you now. Do with that mental imagery what you wish.
