The image featured is of a person's mouth with snake bites pierced into it. The image reflects the trend (snake bites) by displaying how they are appropriately worn. The trend it self is important to society for a reason similar to other trends. In which that reason would be that the trend signifies a generation or a group of people of the time in history that the trend is "trending". In simpler terms, the trend is able to stand out into history to show a certain moment in time, which the moment in time would be when the trend is popular. However, this reason pertains to today's society and future society. Another reason that the trend is popular to society would be for the counter culture of modern society today. In basics, most facial piercings of this time is looked down upon or shunned due to the general census making up today's society particularly doesn't like them. In that sense it is important to the counter culture who also make up today's society because it goes against society, or more so just against the normal grain of this time. The people who like them and wants facial piercings and more specifically snake bites want them just because they like them, making those people counter culture who makes up part of society today, making the trend of snake bites important to society.
