    my mom sent me this shit in an email....
    How to reduce the risk of getting caught:
    Do not write your tags on your personal property, such as schoolbooks, bags, inside of your hat, back of your desk etc. If you want to practice your tag style on paper, make sure you throw the pieces of paper out when you finished. Keep your sketchbook hidden in a safe place. Keep your photos hidden in a safe place too. Doing so will make the evidence harder to find when your house is searched.
    -Keep a low profile. Do not tell every writer you meet your real name & where you live, until you fully trust them. You do not want everyone to know who you are, what you write, and what your tag is. The risk of getting caught increases the more people you tell! When writers get caught, they are usually asked for information on other writers. It is possible that someone might 'spill the beans' about you accidentally or intentionally, when being questioned.
    -Never tell anyone about your plans. This is one of the golden rules of not getting caught. Tip-offs are common.
    -Do not write your tags close to your home or neighborhood. By doing so, you will keep your position / home-base secret. There was a writer once that bombed the trail that lead from his home to the railway station. Over time, the trail got bombed out so much that you could work out where he lived by following the tags!
    -The number 1 Golden Rule of not being caught is "Make sure that you do not fit the Profile of a Writer". This simply means, when bombing, don't dress & look as a writer. Some of the best 'camouflage' you can get is geek clothing (e.g. shirts with a collar etc). Also, consider keeping your markers / spray cans in a plastic grocery bag. Keep your shoes, clothes and hands clean from spray paint. Keep your nails short too. This will prevent spray-paint from going under your nails, and becoming hard to clean. When questioned, the first thing you are asked it to show your hands.
    -Check for cameras before you tag. Don't forget that some (infra-red) cameras can see in the dark.
    -Want to stop your cans from rattling? Attach a magnet to the base of the can. The magnet will hold the ball bearing in place! (Round strong magnets, that fit perfectly to the base of the can).
    -Wipe your fingerprints from empty cans and markers that you throw away.
    -Never hit your favorite spots over again. Try to keep a random pattern of places that you hit.
    -Always have an excuse or alibi ready.

    If yo wish to go all city ..or run with some serious cats you have to realise that the chances of you getting caught are HIGH.....

    thats the price of fame i guess

    Seems like normal common sense to me... If you didn't already know all that, put your cans down... let your mom bomb.

    If you dont wanna get caught dont tag! Simple as that. Pigs and Paint have been like dogs and cats, they dont go togeather. Just dont graff if you dont wanna get caught.
