Hyper Celetributes

Icon obsession goes extreme with celeb-inspired body mods
Implications - For some celeb-obsessed consumers, it’s just not enough to get a signed CD or a branded tee; the truly icon-infatuated is seeking body modifications, from tattoos to nail and hair design. Though celebs are often the inspirations behind individual style, these semi-permanent (and sometimes permanent) aesthetic alterations seem to border religious idolization. With extreme celebtributes, celebs can live on in pop culture even if they are no longer popular.
