Tactile hallucinations or somatic hallucinations can be described as the experience of perceiving physical sensations which are not actually occurring within reality. Common examples of these can include hallucinating the feeling of people or insects touching the body in various places and in a wide variety of ways. Alternatively, these hallucinations can be felt as complex and structured arrangements of vibration across the skin.

This effect may also be accompanied by visual hallucinations. For example, during internal and external hallucinations a person may have the perception that they are able to feel imagined objects or be touched by autonomous entities in a similar manner to that of ordinary dreams. The sensations that are possible within these hallucinations could be almost anything and can even include pain or sexual pleasure.

Tactile hallucinations are most commonly induced under the influence of heavy dosages of deliriant compounds, such as DPH, datura, and benzydamine. However, they can also occur to a lesser extent under the influence of psychedelics, stimulant psychosis and extreme sleep deprivation.
