Get a tattoo
Get a tattoo—preferably of a punk band, an anarchy symbol, skull and crossbones, or anything that symbolizes rebellion. Place it anywhere on your body—the more surprising the location, the better.
Meet your peeps
Meet your peeps at punk rock concerts and look angry—or just hang out in public somewhere, looking bored.
