That's why printing bandages with fun or stylish designs makes a lot more sense. Or, if you're feeling macabre, you can toss a few bucks at this Indiegogo campaign that wants to create a line of bandages that make your cut or abrasion look far worse that it really is.
Are these Boo-Boos bandages a little unsettling? No, they're very unsettling, but for some reason kids seemed fascinated by gore. And pretending that a simple paper cut is actually a bullet wound you're too tough to get taken care of guarantees you some instant playground street-cred. A donation of just $12 gets you 20 of the Boo-Boos bandages—four of each of the five design—but parents will want to make sure they have a strong stomach first since they'll most likely be the ones administering them.
