Exactly, it's rather just a composition of previous trends in an "attempt" to be unique.
"You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everyone else, and we are all part of the same compost pile."
Their self cutting thing sucks,that's a big difference between me and serious emos,but anyway,I do hurt myself in other ways like bumping head to the wall,or punching ground till it REALLY hurts
Funny thing : most of teenagers,first discover what emo is,then they become one,my way was reverse first,I've always loved emo hair,even when the emo thing didn't exist!(since I was 4),I've been hurting myself intentionaly for a long time,last year I began to listen to the radio station in the game Saint's Row 2,later I discovered it was Emo station... last week,I figured out that I'm emo.
