Suburbia at IMDB

When family problems and a sense of worthlessness overcome Evan, he finds escape with the orphans of a throw-away society. Calling themselves T.R. ("The Rejected"), these runaways hold on to each other like family, living in abandoned houses away from the society which despises them. Suburbia is THE punk rock movie, depicting with unbridled realism the lives, loves, and misfortunes of a discarded youth. (from the dvd case)

Suburbia features scarification when the kids brand themselves with the "T.R." symbol as a form of alliance and recognition amongst themselves.
