|Inverted Cross/ St. Peters Cross|
Within the past 10 years inverted crosses have been more connected to black metal bands such as the band Immortal:
As of more recently the upside down cross has been seen almost as "cute" for certain people, such as these "cute" inverted cross shorts.

Alexander Binder's images suck you in the moment you lay eyes on them. They seem to have a poetic, Magical Aura and you can't help but wonder how on earth he manages to capture such incredible moments full of mystery, evil symbols, and wonderful colors at the same time.

It is difficult for me to say if this trend will last. According to artist James Mustico the upside down cross is still cool enough for contemporary art, but not the triangle. It is possible that this trend of an inverted cross will stay within the blog and reblog image world of Tumblr and will slowly fall into the same category of art as photographs of cats.

The inverted cross is still being pushed into more mainstream outlets with the help of people like Lady Gaga, and her inverted cross costume in her Alejandro music video, and breaking through hip hop group Odd Future, using an inverted cross as one of their main logos. Only time will tell if this trend will fall short and become further ridiculed for its misuse as satanic imagery or if the idea of what it stands for changes due to how many people are using it for their own meanings.
