look up any word, like ratchet:
 
1.
A crazily awesome person. Unique in his own way, unique in the sense that he is a conformist/non conformist, somone who conforms in one way then defies the conventions of what he is doing in another way.
someone who dresses preppy but listens to deat metal and acts like a rocker. The word Higaty doesnt apply to someone that might dress like a rocker and listens to gaymusic like fallout boy. The word higaty is a compliment, it only works if the person defies conventions in an awesome way. You cant dub yourself a Higaty, someone else has too.
