What is DIY Ethic?

The DIY ethic (Do It Yourself ethic) refers to the state of being self-reliant by completing tasks oneself as opposed to having others who are likely more experienced to complete. The term can vary actions “doing” anything from home upgrades and repairs to healthcare, from publications to electronics.

DIY challenges the supposed uniqueness of the expert’s skills and enhance the capability of a normal people to learn to do more than they thought they can.

In the punk subculture, the DIY ethic is stick to puck ideology and and anti-consumerism as the deny of purchasing or buying things from an existing system or process. The DIY punk ethic is also applied to daily living such as knowing how to repair a bicycle rather than taking that bike to a mechanic’s shop…


The term ‘DIY’ or ‘Do-It-Yourself’ is also used to describe:

  • Self-publishing books, zines, and alternative comics.
  • Bands or solo artists releasing their music on self-funded record labels
  • Creating crafts such as knitting, sewing, handmade jewelry, ceramics, etc
  • Creating punk, indie, or hipster musical merchandise through the use of recycling thrift store or discarded materials, usually decorated with logo art applied by silk screen.[3]
  • Independent game development and game modding.

DIY as a subculture arguably started with the punk movement of the 1970s. Instead of stretching their music labels to a large number of audiences, bands began recording themselves, manufacturing albums and merchandise, booking their own tours, and creating chances for smaller bands to have wider recognition and gain cult status through repetitive low-cost DIY touring.

DIY culture includes not only hand-making items such as clothing and housewares but also extends to choices of public transportation such as biking and bike repair, walking, taking public transportation, making electric, hybrid or bio-diesel vehicles and modifying existing vehicles, to avoid supporting traditional car companies, which are perceived to be amoral. Listening to and making community radio, pirate radio, and watching and making community television instead of advertising-filled traditional media is also common.
