Violence is a common part of skinhead culture. Fist fighting, especially after we've had a few to drink, happens quite a bit. Gun violence is almost known in the scene, though. (Note: I'm talking about real skinheads, who are non-racist, not so-called nazi skinheads.)

But skins can be very friendly, too. It's an aggressive scene, so like any macho scene with a lot of alcohol, you get plenty of scraps. THIS PIRSON IS KIND OF KERECT skinheads injoy heavymettle clubs I KNOW. We are onley vilent when provoked

Skinheads are known to get extremely aggressive toward African Americans. They are a group that promotes White as the superior race and they applaud beating on anyone who thinks other wise. If you were an African American or a White man who believed in equality for all and you stood in front of skinheads and told them this you would probably get attacked. There are documentaries out there about the start of skinheads, how they recruit, the violent acts that skinheads have been charged with in the past, as well as how they gain their membership and how quickly they have done it.

What is a skinbyrd?

Originally meant to be the girlfriend, friend, or supporter of skinheads. It was stated that girls aren't supposed to be skinheads, but rather to help out the guys that are, but still wanted rank within the skinheads. So, they became skinbyrds. Some skinbyrds took on the look of skinheads, with the boots and shaved heads or Chelsea hair, but most remained anonymous and chose to look 'normal'. Some claim that there is no such thing as a female skinhead, and all that exists are skinbyrds. I suppose this though counts on what subgroup of skinheads you are. Traditional skinheads believe in skinbyrds, and racist ones do too. Sharp and Rash skinheads think of women as skinheads, however. See that girl over there, hanging out with all those skinheads, she's a skinbyrd.

What are the meanings of skinhead tattoos?

It would all heavily depend on what the design is. As a former skinhead myself, I make it my personal mission to raise awareness to the vast majority of the world that do not know that there are two types of skinheads; racist skinheads (the idiots that most people know of and despise), and NON-RACIST skinheads (the ORIGINAL skinheads). Skinheads came directly from the Rude Boy culture in Jamaica in the late 50's and early 60's, and a good majority of skinheads were, and still are, black and ethnic. When Jamaicans started to immigrate to the UK in the late 60's and early 70's, the Rude Boy culture mixed with the growing rock and punk scene, and this is essentially where Skinheads came from. The image of the Non-Racist Skinheads was pretty much irreparably busted when the National Front in England started to enlist the more rowdy of the skinheads and the ones that were latently racist to begin with and basically turned them into a thug army. Nowadays, most people are completely unaware that there is even such a thing as a Non-Racist Skinhead, which MOST of the skinheads that you will ever see, are. The racist faction is a small and pathetic one.
