In the modern tattoos and piercings are art aesthetics, and prestige in a particular group. From all of the items lifestyle is an index of urban adolescent promiscuity. In the discussion of ideology there are alignments of the filmmakers to the ruler who makes the producer or the absolute market power that makes them (filmmakers must submit to the will and ideology of the market (employers) if you do not want to be left investors or spectators. So the producers, the majority only want to make a commercial movie that became a trend among the community especially the youth market. So that arise for youth consumer culture.
