A honey comb with bees on it:



I don't think anyone's afraid of it. Honestly kind of pretty.

Photoshop the honeycomb as a human flesh monstrosity and maybe it's a different story.

iirc, your brain can feel a small bit of the pain they see from others, so seeing something like that can actually cause pain to others, albeit much less than the actual victim (please feel free to correct me if i'm wrong tho)

I work with someone who has a problem with this. She freaks out over everyday things. The images involving skin and especially people's faces make me physically queasy, but non-human images don't even make me uncomfortable.

In my co-worker's case the effects are very real. But I'm almost positive this is a learned behavior from her mother, who also has this problem, but "much worse". Her mom is a total drama queen and probably passed this phobia on to her daughter.

Not at all, but that is still unpleasant to look at.

The image if photoshopped but still. Kill me now Jesus Christ


In that case I think it's not so much the cluster of holes but the disfigurement of what we know to be a hand. It gives me a very slight bit of uneasiness. If I become familiar with it I suspect any uneasiness will go away.

More accurately, the fear of irregular patterns or clusters of small holes.
