Feelin' Crafty

Graffiti Love

It is no secret that I love graffiti.  But not all graffiti is created equal. I like to look at graffiti that someone took their time with. Whether it is from a stencil they created

Kiss Don't Kill

Or free form art

Stepping on Gary

Or they use lots of bold color


Sunflower and Tag

Or they make a statement

I love my life


What I don’t like is when people start tagging the fronts of business or church doors. Or when all they do is just spray their tag all over town. Here in Ann Arbor we have had the reigns of “Fresh”, “Whey” and “Chu”. Now it is “Duck” and “Swallow”

Come on people work a little harder. Thanks!

  1. Completely agree. I’m not church going folk but I hate seeing tags on churches or other pretty buildings. Thats just rude. Why can’t people draw on themselves instead?

    you dont like graffiti. you, like many people, like pretty colors and fashion. if you dont understand and appreciate handstyles and tags, you really dont understand graffiti. just my two cents.

    • The graffiti I am complaining about is just the repetitive tagging of any surface that stays still long enough to spray paint. No effort seems to have gone in to it. Yes, I do like pretty colors, not going to deny that. But what is tagging “Duck” or “whey” 8000 times mean? I would love to know your opinion.

        its making a statement that, hey i was here today. And if you take the time to look around and follow their tags, you can follow their path that they took that day, something i find interesting and fun. plus tags look much better and take way more skill than those bullshit messages that ppl write in sharpie such as “i love my life”. i agree w/dankdork in that you like colors, not real graffiti.
