Get well soon Masks...I'd be distressed

Originally uploaded by gregor.r.
Ok, the idea here is thoughtful; making the typical sterile looking white gauze mask to look more cheerful and funny while still serving its purpose. The result comes directly from Japan, printed masks with animal-snout patterns on them, transforming a human face into a hybrid vermin. I’d be quite bothered having to witness a horde of medics chasing around a clinic with these masks on them.

Medgadget (thanks for the link by the way) states:

“Just imagine yourself emerging from anaesthesia, high on narcotics, benzodiazepines and barbiturates, and seeing your anaesthesiologist, as a tiger-human hybrid. Probably not for patients with high-grade coronary stenosis.”
