To obtain the perfect emo look you will need the following:

Body Mods

  • Tattoos of stars – Notably nautical stars. You also need to get some tattoos of cherries, sparrows, and a guitar.
  • You must have at least one or two lip rings. Express your inner pain by showing that you also have outer pain. Stretch your ear lobes to an ungodly gauge like 00 so you can buy the cool plugs with the nautical stars in them.


  • Greasy hair – Try avoid showering for 2 or 3 days.
  • Dyed black hair – Should be floppy if you are male, teased huge if you are female.


  • Emo kids like to drive something called a “Vespa” which is just an expensive moped with a foreign name. You will not be emo until you buy one.
  • However, if you’re not FORTUNATE enough to buy a vespa, EMO kids usually like to drive Kia’s, Hyundai’s, or those old school Toyota Corollas .

Seventeen magazine had a photospread of what makes someone emo! Great advice!
