    my parents know i write and they support me by buying huge pieces of plywood to practice piece and stuff but they dont agree with tagging wich pisses me off, iv tried repeatedly to show them how tagging is like the base of graff and how if its done correctly it can look ten times better the half the shit throwups on the planet. anyone have any vids or ideas on how to explain why taggings so important?

    my parents and sister - she's an artist, they all support my doing graffiti, but not illegal graff.. soo, my mum set up a legal wall for me once <3 was pretty fuckin tight, but i ruined things when i got caught broad daylight bombing in the middle of the city - Not cool. :L , so now i don't think she supports it anymore.

    From a young age my moms,and my grams noticed I was into Graff. They bought me plenty of books. When I started they would encourage the use of stickers. I have done hands in front of both my mom and grandmother in the past, they weren't pissed. On the other hand my pops once said he'd rather be caught with narcotics in his pocket than slaps, but he didn't care I had them. I am very fortunate to have such supporting family members.

    Mine know... most of my family knows actually because of some commission works I've done.
    But they don't know my name and tag.

    No, both my parents died when I was young. My wife knows I write and go to a legal spot. I have even brought her there with me. She probably won't be happy when she starts seeing my work around the city though.

    My parents don't support my art of any form to be honest, let alone graff. Been caught by my parents with slaps and paint but never by the police. I took a break from actually getting up for about a year so as of now I don't believe they know.

    Hard one. My mother is an artist, she doesn't approve of walls in the city, other than bridges, but she's all for freights. She loves to see my stuff roll past our house. My step dad doesn't approve. Pretty old fashioned. A man should work, and not waste his time on artistic things. My girlfriend thinks I'm going to die doing it, like I'm going to get hit by a train, or get jumped by a group of writers. But yeah, my moms chill with it. She's my biggest crit. She's always giving me pointers from her days of art college. Shit, she bought me 40 cans of Rusto for Christmas. She's pretty bomb.

    My parents dont know. They know I like to draw graffiti and stuff in my book, but I hide my graff name. Sometimes they joke about it like "Yeah he goes around tagging the walls and bridges ahahaha" and i sit there silently.
    Im sure theyll find out someday, but as of now, I leave it to myself
