Bruise Stickers

Bruise Stickers may be the next big craze for nonviolent, exhibitionist youth. The product consists of three layers: a cardboard backing, the plastic sticker with pigment on the bottom and adhesive on the top and finally a covering film. Peel off the film and press your palm or fist against the sticker to loosen it from the backing before lightly smacking a friend or yourself.

A light slap on the face with a regular bruise sticker results in an instant, realistic, black and blue (and green and red) blemish, and a soft sock in the eye with a dark-ringed sticker will leave a black eye sore. Even small, black, rectangle stickers are available for knuckle-to-tooth application of “knocked out teeth”.

       I thought that this must exist (though without the creative form of application). However, a google for "bruise stickers" only turns up an off color comment about domenstic violence barbie. +

       Not entirely sure why you'd want to do this, but it's bound to appeal to somebody. It would certainly be useful to amateur thespians and film directors everywhere.

       Fighting made fun! Now work out the sound effects.

       Liquid crystal might also work, if you could fiddle with the colors. For example, you have a spot of flesh-colored LC film on your arm, and when you touch it, it heats up and becomes green and gray, but then settles back into flesh color again.

       The liquid crystal would even get you the nice hand print from a slap in the face

       "no, I won't give you my croissant! what're you going to do, give me the sticker ?" +

       Great idea to make excuses look more realistic. I could always tell my boss (when I have one) that I didn't mean to be late for work; actually, I was getting there in record time until this violent thief attacked me and took all my belongings with him. A couple stickers... no further questions.

       Now there's someone who plans ahead; making excuses for being late to a job she doesn't have.

       Ouch [half]! That low punch did leave a real bruise.
Pericles, Aug 11 2004

       What's the advantage ? What's the point ?

       [Pericles], I was admiring your optimism and forethought. It wasn't intended as a slam. My intent was to say "a job she doesn't *yet* have". Comprende?

       How about temporary bruise tattos, if you're going for the Fight Club look?
