These Boo-Boos Band-Aids Make Your Injuries Look a Lot More Intense

Chicks dig scars, apparently, so I can understand the appeal of the utterly disgusting-looking bloody bandages. Five versions of decorated band-aids are produced with different types of wounds on their surfaces, creating the illusion that the wearer is exposing an open cut.

If your skin is the same ivory pigment as these plasters, the imagery of bullet holes, maggot-infested ulcers, sharp force trauma and chemical burns will look all the more realistic; the designs are really very lifelike. Texture seems to be accounted for too in the representation of stitches, insects and all sorts of epidermal puckering and wrinkling. These bloody bandages are a gross idea, but a clever one. They encourage attention for even the smallest of cuts, scrapes and scratches, which you wouldn't normally get.
