Explanation:
Nowadays, even if desired by the group as an identity reference - like among hooligans or football supporters - ***skin-deep*** signs more often than not reflect individual choices.

Aujourd'hui, même si elle est souhaitée par le groupe comme référence identitaire - chez les punks ou les supporters de football -, la signalétique ***à fleur de peau*** répond plus souvent à des choix individuels.
