    A common practice at all-ages punk shows was to mark minors with an "X" 
    on their hands so they couldn't buy alcohol. As the straight-edge
    philosophy grew popular, punkers who were older than 18 but didn't
    drink for ideological reasons started to mark themselves with the X in 
    a show of solidarity. [1]
