China Goes Punk - Beijing's Skinheads

While there are plenty of Left wing, anti-racist Skinheads out there anybody sporting the Skinhead look these days is assumed to be a violent, racist bastard.

But would we feel the same way if the Skinhead in question was a Chinese man?

This scenario may sound too ridiculous to be true, but it's becoming a bizarre reality in Beijing, where fans of punk are adopting the look and the attitude and going full Skin.

Friends Mr. Ma, Bangbang and (name withheld) are punk fans and Skinheads against racism, following in the footsteps of the SHARPS (Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice).

They're also brand consultants who admit "most of the time their customers don't know what their Dr. Martens and Levi's represent".

Knowing how China is nowadays it's only a matter of time before this decidedly Western look catches on with blue collar Chinese punks seeking a look that makes a statement.
