From CNN Intern Emily Landrieu:
So we are all familiar with the world wide Twilight phenomenon. It has spawned a complete obsession with all things vampire, from make up to clothing and even to biting. That’s right, biting. Since vampire mania took hold of the world a few years back, teens throughout the country have been showing affection through biting each other. Now with the third Twilight in theaters, True Blood back on the small screen and a slew of others in circulation – the trend in resurfacing. High schoolers say it’s a way to show someone you care about them and that you are chosen- just like in the movies. Bite marks have now even started to be a status symbol. Teens are sporting these bites and their arms, necks, and even faces.
What do you think about this trend? Is it a odd way to show someone you care?
