This is sure to be a controversial image...

We came up with the idea a few weeks prior to the shoot, for no other reason then to push the limits of our combined twisted eye for offending... or amusing everyone we can.

yes, the pad is on backwards in order to make the shoot happen, i feel its like its jeffree's first period... and he doesnt know what to do!?!? :)

NOTE! - HUGE HUGE thanks to everyone!! especially Jeffree Star for putting up with my weird concepts and ideas... ^RockstarVanity who is the horror mod for the DD!! and to ^Helewidis who is the amazing photoj mod! such an honor thank you so so much!

p.s. i posted a journal about this - and its responses here - please read it [link]

EDIT: all you people "reporting" this image... yeah... its fake blood, and the model - Jeffree - IS MALE!. if this really offends you. dont look at it. the whole concept is gender bending, and if this is too much for you, then we did our job and accomplished exactly what we were setting out to do.

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-08-16
Today's DD is 'borrowed' from the Photojournalism gallery. Jeffree Star - Peroid by *JeremySaffer is sick, twisted and downright offensive...which is why I love it. I've never been a fan of controversy for controversy's sake, but depicting controversial subject matter with genuine artistic merit creates an image which is challenging and more than a little tongue-in-cheek.

Oh god, all the flame in the comments. Though as a fellow photographer (sadly I don't have any work up because people have stolen my art before) I would take it as a complement. This means you have created controversy and a strong reaction with your art- and that is a great accomplishment. Personally I love it, and I also love Jeffree Star, so you've earned yourself another watcher.

to be honest I think it's funny but yet very well... I can't find the word so I'll just put informative (it's nothing bad about the picture I kind of like it)

I love this. Enough Said.

If anyone is offended... as it states in the "EDIT" part..... if you are offended, just dont look at it.
BatSqueaks Featured By Owner May 6, 2013
kinda have to look at it to be able to interpret what it is?
BatSqueaks Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012
fucking offensive as shit. :I
koujakulation Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
Mm nope not really
BatSqueaks Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
mmm, yeah I'd say so.
As if any man could understand that and put up with it until they're fifty.
Complete mis-representation.

I have to bleed out every month and regularly get cysts removed from my ovaries.
I think I get it more then anyone else :|

Plus the 'don't look at it if it offends you' crap is such bull.

I kinda have to look at it to be able to interpret what it is? ;P
l--insomnia--l Featured By Owner May 6, 2013
Okay I'm a chick. I know what it's like, especially when there's a chance that somethings messed up in my ovaries but I don't have the money to deal with it.

And I think that the person who made this gets it more then you do since they mad it.

And know you don't because you can see from the thumb and if you do interpret it to yourself and don't comment.

I actually really like this. It took me a while to get my head around it, but I have to agree with the comment on the DD - the fact that it is offensive is the reason I like it. The look of shock on Jeffree's face really completes it - it makes the picture slightly funny, though perhaps only to those with as warped a sense of humour as I do. :XD:

punkrockingfaerie Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
ok i for one i love this, it different, its shocking, and its just plain out there!
its making us rethink all we know, causing fights and getting people to look, which is what i think art should be about. It should make us think and argue our point till where blue in the face

other than that ^_^ i love you'r stuff just awesome
thejamz Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer

i don't see how this is too terribly controversial. oh no, blood, i guess? because periods are something a lot of females have to deal with monthly. i guess all those people with weak stomachs might as well ban tampon and pad commercials, because that has to remind them of blood. :l
ANYWAY, amazing shoot. c:
tbh, when i first saw this i laughed. so hard, oh god. jeffree's expression is just.. so great. he really looks like he has no idea what's going on.
ravengurl11 Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
It's kind of adorable in a way, the look of helplessness does that I believe.
Not to mention the photograph itself is stunning!
