An alternative lifestyle is a lifestyle generally perceived to be outside the cultural norm. Usually, but not always, it implies an affinity or identification within some matching subculture (examples include EMO, Goth and punk). Traditionally not all minority lifestyles are held to be "alternative"; the term tends to imply newer forms of lifestyle, often based upon enlarged freedoms (especially in the sphere of social styles) or a decision to substitute another approach or not enter the usual expected path in most societies. A Stanford University cooperative house, Synergy, was founded in 1972 with the theme of "exploring alternative lifestyles."

In this section we shall be looking more into the alternative lifestyle, we shall be looking into tattoos, piercings and body modification.
