IF YOU’RE A TAD SQUEAMISH ABOUT MENSTRUAL ART THIS POST MIGHT NOT BE FOR YOU.

So did you hear the one about the chick that likes to paint with the blood she collects from menstruating? No? Well you’re welcome to read on, or suddenly dry heave into a trash can.

Artist Tinet Elmgren is a legitimate period painter. If you visit her site you’ll be treated to a pretty detailed and open discussion of what that entails. Here are some of the Q&A highlights.


Does the blood smell? Is it icky?
Tinet says, “nope.” She goes on to explain that the fresh blood has a bit of a metallic, iron scent. Though after a few hours (once it dries), it might get a tad pungent.


***SHOCKINGLY, GROSS ANSWER ALERT***

So how do you create your art?
Tinet states that collecting blood in a menstrual cup isn’t her style. Instead, she squats over the canvas and lets the um red paint drip on the paper. Then Tinet grabs a brush and goes to work.


What happens when the blood congeals?
The color takes on a brownish tone. Tinet usually scans her work right after she’s finished.


Oh and FYI, you can buy Tinet's art featured on everything from journals to thong underwear. Click here to visit her Blood Shop.


AND NOW WE MOVE ON TO THE ULTIMATE PERIOD PIECES.

  7. I wonder if she has her art up in the dining room. I would love to be a fly on the wall (the wall, not the paintings) for a dinner party.

  13. Uh, ha ha! Thanks for this article.

    You got one thing wrong, though - the fresh blood I used never smelled more than regular blood, *because* it dried up. Guess you were too grossed out to read properly.

    Anyway, I haven't been painting with my period for many years now, except a couple times when I was commissioned to do 'period pieces' for some book projects. ;o)

  14. Why can't you use something else like pig's blood or something. Like your art but not the material used to make it.

  15. As mentioned, Bitcoins are generated by users through the
    official program. Another important point of comparison between
    the two companies would be in political and charitable affiliations.
    What do you think when a new potential supplier approaches
    you with the selling phrase, "I'm as good as the one you use now".

  16. Its not surprising that people might become depressed during stressful times – such as going through a divorce, caring for a sick relative
    or financial problems. This is where a program like Yeast Infection No More
    can help. Her book doesn't just give a temporary quick fix, but provides all the information necessary for understanding, combating and ultimately curing yeast infection. Different from other girls, she did not wear the very sexy short dress and very high-heeled shoes, she only wore a white skirt, which suited her slim figure very much, and her hair was very straight, she had white and smooth skin, a pair of big eyes which could speak for her, I saw the unique charm in her. Yeast Infection No More Book key formulation component is the 5 step system plan where not a single thing held back.

  17. This can be flight simulator version FS2002, FS2004 or the latest version of Flight simulator, FSX.

    While the leader is placing protection and clipping the rope
    through, the second climber is removing previously placed protection.
    The latest version, Rollercoaster Tycoon 3, is produced by Atari and can be purchased at most retail outlets.
    However, if you'd like to take the scenic route through Google Earth, the SR22 is a better choice. If youre a flight sim enthusiast, the you must try the king of flight simulator games.
