Phlegm by *armene Suggested as well by :iconeschlehahn: "This is an image which many might find disturbing or even disgusting. Others may find it funny or beautiful. But regardless of in which direction the initial reaction goes, the hidden messages in this image are amazingly various and deep. A truly striking conceptual artwork!"

I've always admired the creativity and artistry in your photos. I love the tonality of this, the visual textures of the hard shiny shell, the soft wet snail and tongue, and the skin. The freckles, the monochrome look, and the snail and its positioning with its head strecthing over the lips and body on the tongue all come together wonderfully. I love the choice in cropping. It's a very good, evocative image. Well done! Given the difficulties in self-portraits and working with animals, this is very amazing. I don't know where you get your inspirations and ideas from, but I hope your well never runs dry.

Umm..actualy I have no idea what to say about this photo ^^;
It's totally disturbing and disguisting, but on the other hand it's very original and well made..
I'm confused..:blushes:

At first I was like, "Holy crap someone was brave/crazy enough to put a snail in her mouth." But after looking at a while, I just thought the snail was kinda cute and looked curious (if snails can even feel that way).
