One thing about warmer weather and summer in the Northern hemisphere is that it also means that festival season is upon us! Our ad writer, Ann, embarked on her first music festival adventure of the season this past Memorial Day weekend in Chillicothe, Illinois at Summer Camp Music Festival.
The vibes and the music brought people from all walks of life together for a weekend under the hot summer sun, but there was one thing abundantly clear from the moment of stepping onto the grounds: body piercings were everywhere! There were many pierced babes, both male and female, frolicking about the fields and stages at the grounds of Three Sisters Park. Enormous stretched lobes, faces full of metal, and plenty of dangles and sparkles caught attention at every twist and turn, whether it was making your way through the crowd or swaying to the tunes. Although there seems to have always been a correlation between counterculture and body modification, seeing the two come together in such a welcoming and flamboyant environment was a truly beautiful event.
There was no shortage of adorable looks at Summer Camp, and as with most festivals today, there were many fashionable trends that made themselves apparent over the three-day weekend, regardless of how dirty everyone got. And the pierced styles were the best part! Let’s take a look at just a few of the many amazing body jewelry products we have to offer you that will gain you your fill of festival fashion while still ensuring a full wallet to enjoy the actual event!
