The good old world of romantic love imagery is a clear map. Everything is : Smiles, Pink color, Kisses, Flowers, Couples, Spring or Holidays and all kind of tender togetherness.
The good old world of Goth Subculture or Metal imagery is a clear map. Everything is : Mist, Skulls, Black color, Red Roses, Tatoos, Blood and Death.
