Tends to mix completely different cloths and call it 'creative' will do anything to show that they are different or 'unique' from everyone else.
art to them is all about black and white photographs used by old school cameras. they have the emotion of Emo, but the rebellion of punk rockers. Will have hair put up in fohawks or chop it all on different levels as if to say "watch out, I'm hardcore!"
