    Some people find great symbolism in things like that, there's whole religions that center much of a woman's spiritual energy on things like that.

    It's not sanitary, so I wouldn't do it. but I don't care if others do. I appreciate the artwork.
    I very much enjoy symbolism. I just find this rather one-dimensional and obvious. It seems almost like a lazy approach, and that's where I start to see it as a shock method, rather than some profound expression of a hard to articulate sentiment.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Heh, I love the title to this thread, it's appropriate. SNATCHing a glimpse?

    I probably wouldn't be as grossed-out, but I'd still think "WTF?" if someone painted with blood from a cut, no so much "that's cool". Maybe also "they make much better red dyes and paints these days, pal".

    Secondly, is there anything wrong with being disgusted by some substances more than others? I determine my saliva to be more tolerable than my urine for reasons that I think should be obvious.

    As for its artistic value, I already covered how I'm not really impressed.

    Gotta agree with the sponge, though I agree with Edahn in terms of how one bodypart [I refuse to call it a 'vajeen,' hahah] shouldn't be deemed more or less acceptable in whatever context than any other part. But hey, like I said.. let's face it, if body secretions weren't unsanitary, medical professionals wouldn't recommend use of antibacterial hand sanitizers after we use the bathroom, or come in contact with hospitals.

    Blood & endometrial tissue are not paint. They're decomposing biological waste product.. all societal taboos aside.. pretty sure disgust is a natural response in that regard. Germs, potential infections, and soforth.

    I agree, if it was hand-blood people may not be so disgusted by it. I think blood is awesome, symbolically. And menstrual blood is like 20x cooler, symbolically. And art is all about symbols sooo...

    How is it lazy and one dimensional? I think you just cant get over where the blood came from. Did you see the second link? That art was truly beautiful not one dimensional/lazy at all. Maybe you're also just not big on art? Cause menstrual blood art is a very cool idea if you ask me. Its spiritual and original. And who cares if its sanitary? I saw an article about another woman who painted pictures with her blood and she seals all of them with some crap idk what it is, but it makes a barrier so that they're "sanitary." As for the woman who painted the drum, thats for personal use so it doesn't really matter if its sanitary or not, its hers.

    Blood is life, blood connects us to our past and if an animal reproduces then it will carry on into our future. Its an example of how life is bigger than the individual. Woman's blood is a reminder of the female's ability to create life and our gender's specific connection to the creation force/god.
    Modern society would have women believe that our time of the month is a punishment, a time to feel sorry for ourselves instead of rejoicing in what makes us special. I understand what that one woman was saying about helping women to reclaim their cycles. A woman's monthly cycle connects us to the earth and humanity is very disconnected from mother earth right now, if women were to collectively rediscover the significance their cycles we would be one step closer to reconnecting humanity with nature.

    and thats my 2cents.

    I frankly believe that if my blood is supposed to be sacred to me, I shall keep it to myself as I munch upon chocolate and tea.

    However, putting my blood into a painting would be like.....

    weird.

    The first impression I got was: why does it not look like dried blood? Why is it still really red?

    Also, art is subjective. Just because some people dislike the art of menstrual blood does not mean that they don't like art.

    I didn't care much for the PVC pipe hanging from a wire. Doesn't mean I don't care about art.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?
