I got into the U of A. i am only 18. I am really artsy, into fashion (urban outfitters kinda stuff), love small indie concerts, have tattoos and piercings, interested in skater looking boys, kinda hippie, spend my afternoons in coffee shops. is there a scene for young people like me with these kinds of interests? I live in SLC, UT right now and all though there are tons of mormons there is a big scene of artsy hippies like me in UT and i'm wondering if I will fit in at tucson? thanxxx

you will find that there are people similar yo what you seek, but you will also find an accepting populace as well. the U of A draws students from all over the world, and thus tucson, especially in the U of A area, has accepted people of different cultures and outlooks on life. the best advice i can give you is to relax and be yourself, and you should have few issues.

Sounds like you will fit in perfectly with all the other artsy hippies that hang out on 4th Avenue. You can sip coffee at epic | Cafe. It is a short walk from the university. There is an Urban Outfitters on University. Lots of other small, funky, artsy shops and coffee shops in that area, too. We have plenty of tattoo shops and tattooed people around town. I would say that piercings are also extremely common all around town.

There are plenty of artsy, hippie, skater types running around Tucson, full of tattoos and piercings. No worries! You will fit in just fine!

hang out anywhere along University W to 4th Ave and S on 4th Ave under the RR and into downtown on Congress....I just walked it a few days ago instead of driving to do some errands and it was great....in fact, you may find Tucson to be not as hip as SLC, believe it or not.....it's smaller than SLC, so may not feel as happenin'....all the young people in SLC help keep up the hip factor a bit up there.....

check out the Spot Market, the Time Market, Revolutionary Grounds (coffee with a socialist flavor!), and lots of other cool places on 4th Ave, Univ., and Congress.......

the Tucson Weekly Tucson Weekly comes out every Thursday and has all the artsy-fartsy stuff you'll need....I'm sure you'll have fun down here.....

Tucson is a very different scene than SLC, but it doesn't mean you won't enjoy it. It's really cheap to live and U of A is a great school. The summers can be a shock if you're from SLC, but a very refreshing change in my opinion. My wife and I would love to live in Tucson (we did for about a year and a half) but the job market isn't very good. It's a great place for school/transition, but professionally it's kind of a dead end. Hope that helps.

There are plenty of "EMO" kids around here who hate their moms and never cut their hair. Im sure you will find someone you like.
