Tough, mostly because of poverty and surviving (or not) public schools. Something to be said of poor, urban American youth and essentially no one else. Marked by resourcefulness, pragmaticism, and coldness. As a result of being shit on one too many times. A desirable trait. Can also be the result of an awful family life/childhood. See also hardcore
Yeah, Darius is so fucking hard. His Dad beat the shit out of him and his Mom had to work triple shifts.

Describes a person due to their psychological or physical appearance or experiences with things violent, un-pleasant and generally out of normal daily life, derived from "Hard As Nails" or sometimes just "Nails"
Often used in the sentences “There’s Sam, he’s well hard”, “Careful mate, that blokes nails”
Often forced upon a person due to their financial position, or just because they have an acute taste for all things dangerous / violent.
People with tattoos are mostly considered “hard”.
Also used as an insult to somebody who may think they are “hard”. See examples below.
"She's got a boyfriend, he's pretty hard"
"That blokes got a black belt in kung fu, he must be hard"
"Everytime he goes out, he gets into a fight with the bouncers, and wins, cos he's nails"

Insulting manner:
"You're not hard mate, leave it alone"
"He thinks he's fucking nails he does"
sarcasm "Yer you're WELL hard mate!"
