Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Juggalettes. Well, there are worse things to be than a Juggalette. These ladies are just having some good clean fun. Photographer Jim Kiernan traveled to the 2012 Gathering of the Juggalos in Cave-in-rock, Ill., last week, and he brought back documentation of the fascinating culture of Insane Clown Posse fans. We'll have more of his dispatches from the field later today. From Hatchetman tattoos to full clown makeup, here are the ladies of the gathering.
