    From the book Graffiti Underworld: Villains, Vandals, and Visionaries


    Cornbread: "I got into graffiti when I was incarcerated at a Juvenile detention facility. I insisted that the head cook Mr. Swanson put cornbread on the kitchen menu. They served us white bread everyday"




    Hael TKO: "There were a lot of gang blocks on the walls of the East LA neighborhood I grew up in. That influenced me. That was the first graffiti I ever saw. It wasn't until high school that I noticed the different styles of writing. Hazard, State St., 18th St. The drifters, those were the gangs that were around at that time when I was growing up."



    Ghouls: "I was real young when I started writing on things. At first I did “civilian“ graffiti. I wrote band names or girls names with crayons or markers, whatever I could get my hands on. In junior high I was into skateboarding and punk rock and generally running a muck. Tagging seemed a natural expression of those interests. I was in high school when I saw the book Spraycan Art, and started seeking out graffiti in my home town. I started spray painting in 1992."

    i saw it around and i was always interested in it. then i saw style wars, and definitely got more into it. i was like 12 when i first started but didnt really get serious until later on. then i met other writers and was totally down. it's more of a lifestyle now than anything

    My cousin was bored one day so he used the 'Graffiti Creator' online. He told me about over email or the phone or something. I messed around on it for a while, then joined the forum. After that, it was on!

    I've always been interested in graffiti since I can remember. I remember driving down the highway in PHX AZ, my head would be swiveling look at all the art. Too bad a lot of it is clean now, car rides are a lot more boring when I go back to AZ.

    i saw a music video that had graffiti in it. it was just a couple throws that are only seen for a few seconds, but they just looked so damn cool. i went and got a black and red sharpie, and wrote 'one blood' with drips while taking a shit in bubble letters.

    lmfao thats gotta be the most boring post in this thread haha
    I sever heads, just to sharpen my skills

    A friend of mine asks me if I tag and I said yeah. I tried to show him a shitty alphabet but he he was like" That sucks man, lemme teach you how to really tag." And that's how I got started.
