    This is one of my favorite pictures ever for some reason... Saw it kicking about some time ago. It repulses me and interests me in equal measure.

    Also is it the Squrlz show today?!

    Yeeeesh! *shudder*

    I HATE images like this, even though I know it`s photoshopped lotus seed pods.

    @Overbored: It`s just an image that someone put together to play with the phobia some people have about holes in their skin. There`s a website (trypophobia.net) dedicated to the subject.

    I used to have a recurring nightmare that this image reminds me of ~shudder~. Only recently did I learn it`s a pretty common phobia.

    I did not look at the image, did not want to..nope no thanks..if it is the picture I think it is...it already makes makes my skin crawl to think of it...and I don`t even want to think of it..Yes trypophobia...that is what it is..holes in the skin, I already hate it...honey combs,those nasty lotus seed pod things and whatever else that may have those nasty little holes close together...I need to stop thinking about it now..god I really hate those things...and the word I hate the most is C.L.U.S.T.E.R. Especially when it relates to HOLES!!!!!

    @Faaaaq: Well, I`d definitely say you`re in the minority.

    My theory is that this revulsion to holes in the skin that most people feel is something in our genes, related to hundreds of thousands of years of exposure to small pox, parasites, and the like.

    Strivejaylen, it`s photoshopped seed pods, not rhinestones. That would be a lot less creepy.

    Yes, I too think it`s been `Shopped and Screwed`, if you will, but they could also conceivably be stickers. They kind of look sticker-like to me...

    Yes, it`s shopped; the pattern on the left is exactly the same as the right. How sad. Other than the knees, this is rather cute.

    Looked up more photos like this one. I can`t figure out what the big deal is either. So I`ve got a couple of questions for people who are quite afraid of something like this happening to them.

    Are you strangely touch sense numb? Like, can you see yourself developing this condition without immediately noticing it because you`re calloused/touch numb?

    Did you suffer from moderate to sever acne as a child?

    Have you lived in both area`s with high numbers of biting insects and low? As in, do you know what it`s like to both have to and not have to constantly deal with mosquito`s?

    I`m scarred of squeezing foreign objects out of holes in my skin. I want to squeeze, but this scares me. Something truly horrific about this picture.

    Oh, it`s this. Dear god no.

    Wow, after I posted that, I looked up trypophobia. I have that. I think it is related to burrowing insects in my skin. There are such things, they dig holes in your skin, are invasive, and I want nothing to do with holes in my skin.

    Anime has made me trypophobic; I can`t stand seeing people with bugs coming out of their humps/holes in the humps because of Vampire Hunter D (and other movies/series). This sure doesn`t help!!

    If this is the image I think it is, I already seen it last year and it is terrifying...my wonderful husband to be,thought my fear of holes was a strange thing (which it is I understand)and took it upon himself to put my fear to the test..the end results were not pretty..he now knows to never show me things like that again.I am glad to see I am not the only one here with trypophobia...more things that I hate are Swiss cheese,real sponges,and other various objects with holes that I just choose not to look at lol.

    @TKD_Master: There`s nothing to "get" about a phobia, they just ARE.
    They (usually) can be cured but it takes lots of time and willpower.
    In the case of trypophobia idk if the trouble to cure it is worth it.

    To y`all who suffer from it: Just how often do you see this sort of thing? Aside from the internet...

    IS it ANY sort of holes? That would be bad, worth curing then!

    No, your eights and o`s do not bother me..I know The whole hole phobia sounds silly,I do not get it myself. The logic part of my brain tells me the fear is silly,and that there is nothing to be afraid of. However, The phobia just is..I cannot explain it..it is just there..and no it is not just any holes..the holes have to be arranged in a certain way on a certain surface (if that makes any sense) in order for it to really bother me....don`t worry LOL..I am not a wierdo that locks myself up from the world in fear of holes are out to get me lol it is something I just learned to deal with, and if that certain hole ridden thing pops up or comes around me..I just don`t look at it..even though I may shudder at the thought..I still carry on with my day..
