Tarogramma citizens can often be seen wearing iconography and jewellery to show their allegiances. When a person adorns themself in multiple icons this is called ‘Showing’.
In this image, the figure wears four icons; The Amoeba - representing their work at the Tarogramma Research Centre, The Hand - Representing membership of a highly secretive elite organisation, The Ghost - one of the largest family groups in Tarogramma, and the symbol of The Church of the Void, the primary Tarogramma religion.
It is also possible that the symbols are being worn for purely aesthetic reasons. A trend that is decried by older citizens for destroying the very fabric of society.
