"When I was in metal band, once we were talked into playing an outdoor festival show in the day time in the summer here in Arkansas. I was wearing my signature very punk/metal/goth glam, ultra skimpy outfit as usual. What I didn’t think about was how long I’d be on stage in the direct sun, and my absolutely victorian pale skin was burned to a crisp. The pain of the sunburn on all but the covered (maybe a foot and half square) area of my body wasn’t the worst part,though. It was that I was wearing fishnet stockings and the sunburn left a fishnet sunburn! It looked absolutely ridiculous, even after the red burn healed, the tan left behind was still in the fishnet pattern."
Ouch! Still, good to see that Goths (and yes, punk/metal counts here) can use the sun for scarification, saving themselves a fortune at tattoo parlours. Quick thinking, Gothette!
