I'm new

Hey, I'm Jake, I'm 18 and I live in Wolverhampton (Uk). I like bands such as Rancid, Nofx, the distillers and the sex pistols.

For the last few weeks i've been thinking about changing my appearance, especially my hair. Since i'll be moving back to America, I've wanted a new look to go with it.

In the past I have dyed my hair many shades of many different colours, and had it trimmed into different styles. Currently my hair is jet black with a mixture of pink, red and orange streaks. My fringe is quite long, and constantly gets in the way of my eyes, whilst the rest of my hair is considerably shorter and usually spiked up in many weird ways.

I was wandering if anybody had any tips or ideas.

Attention Bands!

Got a record in the works but lacking good cover art? I'm just getting started in my illustration business, and will provide cheaper services to Punk bands than other clients. If you're really persuasive, I might even do it for free! Contact me by commenting here or in my personal journal... You can check out some of my work here; http://drerock.deviantart.com/gallery/
Most of the images in the gallery only show what I can do with caricature and portraits. I can do really complicated shit, too, if that's what you're looking for.

    ANL- So What?

I could use some advice/help

This is my first post here!

So first of all, hello!

And here's my "problem":

Last year, during autumn, I had a lot of stress, and over 50% of my hair fell out. Luckily it stopped about two months ago, I feared I was getting bold or something.

I'm going to England in June, and I decided to get a mohawk there (I've been wanting one for quite awhile now!). I'm just not sure if I should get a trihawk (which was my initial idea) or a truehawk. I figured, since I don't have that much hair anymore, it would make my trihawk look too thin, and that would probably suck. Could anyone tell me what would be better? Plus, I have no idea what colour to make the hawk. I was thinking about red, and maybe with a little black. I'm open to any suggestions regarding color or length or both.

I was also wondering, whether a hawk would "look good" on me. (just to make one thing clear: I don't want a hawk for the fashion, I'd get a fawhawk then, but I want a trihawk or a truehawk, like I said)
I know I'm not the prettiest person out there, and I'm going to get a hawk even if it won't look as good on me as it does on some people; but I was just curious about your opinions.

Below are some pictures of myself, for you to judge. (I apologize about the quality of some [and the size as well, they're quite big]; it wasn't my camera and I just fooled around a bit with it.. hehe)

And here are the pics, they're 640x480 now, so I'd say they're viewable! ^^

Thanks, in advance! <3

It shouldn't be about Fashion...

Hey.  I'm Becca, I'm 15, and I'm new.  The only reason I joined was because I wanted to ask if this community was a joke or not.  I mean, I know there is a typical punk appearance, but isn't that just fashion?  Doesn't that make punk like any other sterotype?  On the info page to this community it says it's made for showing of punk clothes and stuff.  How is that punk?  If you're all supposed to be ReAl Punk RawK!!!111 or whatever, why do you care so much about punk fashion?  I can understand if you just like it, if it's just your thing, it's what you feel cool and tough in.  I mean, I dress like that too.  But isn't it against what we stand for to go bragging about it?  Don't get me wrong though.  I'm not one of those people who thing that this rebellion of style is hypocritical.  If we all dress differently and can unite then maybe there's a better chance of us making a change.  We'll be more likely to be heard.  But time spent on a community to brag about how long your hawk is or who's got more pyramid spikes is like you're just dressing like that for no reason, and that's not what punk is.  That's not what punk was, at least.  I dunno.  I know I shouldn't let it get to me, it's just a community.  But it's offensive to something I take pride in and have taken pride in for a long time.  Eh.  I guess I'll just stay in this community to discuss shit with someone if they go around saying shit like "BuSH sUcKs!!!!  IF yOu GeT rId Of BuSh, EverYthiNg WiLl bE peRFEct juST LIKe  iT  WaS before!!!1111"...yeah. 

What does 77 mean to you?  Anything?
