THE HOT LOW – Generation Forever Young

We are living in a society obsessed with whatever the latest trends are. This shared obsession has left observers like myself wondering what the next generation of grandparents will look like. With excessive tattoo and piercing fads, what will our nanny and grandpas resemble?  Will they option to remove the piercings and be left filled with holes, or go through the painful and expensive procedure of removing their tattoos, maybe they’ll embrace their individuality well into the other life, either way our curiosity got the best of us which lead us down a very intriguing hole. Feeling a little like Alice in Wonderland where everything is backwards and upside down, here’s a taste of my experience in photos.
