A black halter-neck bikini, with strings that form an upside-down pentagram on the wearer’s chest, thus leaving the wearer with “serious Satanic tan line”.
Apparently they are aimed at the ‘Goth’ wear market.
I have a feeling that isn’t the only market the manufacturer is aiming at.
The devil wears. . . a bikini? Black pentagram two-piece is ideal for ‘the goth girl who wants satanic tan lines’

A black halter-neck bikini, with strings that form an upside-down pentagram on the wearer’s chest, has been advertised as ideal for ‘the goth girl who wants some serious satanic tan lines’.
Because of the swimsuit’s structure, the beach-goer who wears it in the sun will be branded on their chest with the five-pointed shape, which is the official symbol of the Church of Satan.
Since when do goths like sunshine? A black bikini that features an upside down pentagon, a symbol of evil, is being marketed for ‘the slightly Satanic, and the fire-and-brimstone fashionista’
The pentagram, which is a five-pointed star turned upside-down, is known as a symbol of evil since the shape symbolically overturns the proper order of things.
If the MASSblack website is anything to go by, though, devil-worshiping emblems like the pentagram and the inverted cross have become something of a fashionable trend of late.

A description on the website says the company is ‘for all of your satanic clothing and jewelry needs.
‘Pentagrams, cross jewelry, religious relics, home, and apartment decor, get your own antique rosary. Virginal blood is no longer necessary to TRULY Satanify your abode!’ it reads.
The company also has a Facebook page which launched earlier this month. On it, they describe their ideal consumer as ‘the slightly Satanic, and the fire-and-brimstone fashionista.’
Metal appreciation website Metal Insider featured the swimsuit in a recent post titled: ‘Summer’s around the corner, pick up a pentagram bikini.’
The post, which seems to view the bikini in a positive light, reads: ‘These are perfect for burning a pentagram in your chest, because face it, what’s hotter than that?’
Still, the writer did address one elephant in the room: ‘If there’s one slight complaint, it’s that metal and goth girls usually hate the sun,’ he noted.
