People usually become emo when a lot of stress is in their lives. They cut themselves. The most common place they cut themselves is their wrists. It could also be anywhere else though. They find it pleasurable and they think that this physical pain will cover up their emotional pain.
Emo people usually wear black or gray clothing. Skinny jeans, eyeliner, skeletons (not always but mostly)and baggy sweaters are common for the typical emo person.
Their hair is usually black also. Side-bangs that cover most of one side of their face is very common.
An emo person tends to not talk to a lot people. They keep to themselves most of the time and are usually VERY skinny

Mariposa: There was blood stains and scars everywhere.
Jamal: O well that's nice *sarcastically*
Mariposa: I think he's emo.
Jamal: No duhhh
