I always have people ask me that question all the time lol so Heres your the answer to your question whats is a rivethead? Rivethead is a slang word that is used to describe a person who is into industrial fashion.

Industrial fashion is a form of fashion associated with the industrial music scene (examples- Nine Inch Nails, Skinny Puppy, KMFDM, Front 242, :Wumpscut:, etc.).

The clothing is based on divisions such as Punk and BDSM fashions, coveralls, trenchcoats, and military uniforms. Other apparels would be goggles, gasmasks, ammunitions, spikes, combat boots

Do blacklight-responsive dreads count, too? I love those.

Welcome to Gothling.
What was the last cd you played, or are listening to right now?

Those horrid pony fall things are the worst.

Welcome to gothling! Judging by your taste in music, you will fit right in here - everyone on this board likes that awful goth music crap. Goth! Jesus. What tripe. They like "industrial" and "ebm" here, too. Cringe-tastic.

Oooh! I wear military uniforms, trenchcoats, combat boots, I always have a few magazines of ammunition, wear goggles on dusty days and carry a gas mask!

Can I be a rivethead? Most people just call me a shithead. I think your name for it sounds much better!

I listen to those bands, but I also like Covenant. I guess that'd make me a poseur-rivethead?

Hush -- ask Liighter. He's the fashion authority for rivetboys.

My dreaded friends are adorable. It amuses me every time I wear the giant ponyfalls, in that by and large half the people I know fail to recognize me.

Piercings and body mods are a fairly common indicator of Rivet, too. And, of course it's uncomfortable. Don't be silly. Fashion was never about comfort.

Alisgray - In case I didn't hit the mark, I was being just a wee bit facetious with that last post. =)

(Is it catty of me to say "so was I"?) Taking fashion too seriously is a great pity and usually a tremendous waste of cash.

there is something inherently, delightfully, unavoidably silly about making a great showy display of form-over-function.

I still wonder if the dreads-n-goggles look sprang from Burning Man, where both of those things are actually quite practical and comfortable. especially when paired with heavy boots and a breathing mask. but if so, bicycles also ought to be de regieur.
