I have not tagged myself, but I am not against it, if it is for political purposes, or if it's serious art.
If I were a decent enough artist with a spray can, I'd tag some places up myself. I cannot stand those assholes that put chicken-scratch bullshit on the side of a building and think they are hardcore. If you're gonna tag shit, and risk going to jail, at least be good at it.
It's only worth it, if it's excellent artwork, or sends a message. I'll join, because I like the art-style, especially the hip-hop oriented artwork, which has influenced album and logo art. I really enjoy that shit, and I admire those who can take a run-down building and turn it into a work of art.
But I'd like to ask, what do you guys think of those people who tag shit and have no skill, and just put dumb shit up? Would you say they give serious taggers a bad name? (example would be like, someone putting up a swastika and racist chicken-scratch for no apparent reason other than being a douche-bag)
