Mothers beware! Spraypaint is in the air!

this is ridiculously funny "Carrying around fat markers - not for test taking"

What is tagging?

Tagging is not an art form or about expressing oneself. It is vandalism and the destruction of private and public property. Tagging is any unauthorized marking, etching, scratching, drawing, painting or defacing of any surface of public, private, real or personal property.

Tagging causes blight in our community resulting in a genuine threat to the quality of life, incalculable economic losses to businesses, and can lead to the general deterioration of the area in which you live or work. The eradication of graffiti is a huge drain on the City’s resources in both cost and manpower. In most cases, the difference between graffiti being art or a crime is PERMISSION!

"permission".. Graffiti is not a legal art form, we all know that, but what people don't realize is the beauty in "getting up" to the spot, using the environment to create a piece that is in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of that bridge that seems inaccessible. Some people see graffiti as dirty, degrading writing that is some kind of poison to the community, but I see it as making a street corner a bit more interesting, beautifying the environment. Its all a question of perspective.
