I feel strange asking, but is (or was) there really any symbolism or statement in the mohawk? I watched SLC punk and his dad mentions something about the american indian and Ive been wondering if thats where it came from. Or did it start merely for the shock value?

I think punks who do that uniform with a mohawk and just like to wear one and be different

(at least here) no punk cares if you have one or have not, they might just question it when it seems to be to placatively spoilt

I'm pretty sure it was started by native americans. I'm pretty sure p0nx rockers have them for shock and i guess to some it looks cool.......

Like alot of kids around my area had like 1 inch-2 inch mohawks and it kind of pissed me off cuz it was so short so i just went to my house did my own hawk and it was 7 inches... haha. Like i got those "omg wtf" looks from everyone but the kids with the 1 inch ones there like "OMG ITS SOOO CUTE."...... haha.. Yes i dont like short mohawks. Sometimes I do but most kids get it done so badly(when its short)

If I had short hair and wanted to do a mohawk I'd just do a flat travis bickle style mohawk rather than a propa ponx 1.


But I wouldnt, cus I dont particularly like mohawks.

i had a short chuck lidell hawk for about a week..
then i shaved my hair off like i usually do

Mohawks are just fake fauxhawks.

I know this isn't really your question but since a thread on native americans came up....

I've been reading about N.A. culture, i have the utmost respect for traditional indian culture. I mean honestly, they ate meat and weren't total ****ing bastards about it.
And i read this one quote by a pilgrim were it was like ''People run away from us to go live amongst the natives, the natives would rather end their lives than live amongst us''

And sargasm that may just happen seeing as cr00st is the new streetpunx.

Mullets are the new mohawks.
I would look like A.C. Slater if I had a mullet, minus the muscles and tan.

My friend wants to dread my mullet but I don't want to be that much of a stereotype.

My friend had a big ol' mohawk and kept it up with this sick mixture of jello and hair spray... Is that normal?

SLC Punk was a terrible movie. It needs to be said.

I liked it. I never knew people who wore "fauxhawks" really called them fauxhawks until I met this one kid. I guess it's better than actually calling it a mohawk

I hate fauxhawks so much. Either go all out mohawk or no mohawk at all. None of this kind-of-sort-of-but-not-really shit.

I really don't dig mohawks, but my best friend has one that looks pretty awesome. Mainly cause he's black and it stands up without him doing anything to it, haha.

i love mohawks... in fact i'm working on one right now. I still have some more to shave off, i shaved the sides of my head already. So i have all the hair on the top of my head, and the back trails into a mohawk type tail. I just have to work up the motivation to shaved the straight line of hair, then i'll spike it up. Eventually there will be pics.

What I meant was that it seems to be a lot of effort for something that I dont think is all that great.
