I'm looking for a set of images that evoke a disgust reaction. In particular, I'm looking for disgusting objects (e.g. feces, maggots). Is there a database of images like this? It would be especially useful if there were norming or rating data on how disgusting people found the images.
There is one for Trypophobia Image Detector - Browser Plugin using Deep Learning (repo: https://github.com/cytadela8/trypophobia).
Download the data set v2 prepared in 2017-09

- 6.5k trypophobia triggering images obtained from:
- 10.5k neutral images obtained from Google images using own scrapper:
- 10k by supplying it 5k randomly chosen words from this english dictionary and downloading 2 images per word
- 192 with bushes keyword (introduced in v2 to eliminate false positives for greenery)
- 181 with grass keyword (since v2)
- 98 with forest keyword (since v2)
Full disclosure: it was prepared by two of my mentees. I also used it in Detecting trypophobia triggers project at the Aspects of Neuroscience hackathon.
In general, you may want to look up trypophobia Wikipedia entry before using any image search.
