New tag. I think I'll be sticking with this one.
I wouldn't if I were you, bro
Why is that?
Meh. I think I know why. Still elaborate though just so I know I'm an idiot. Haha.
So... i've always loved looking at graffiti in my hometown and on trains passing through from other places but I never gave it a shot. After watching the "Exit Through the Gift Shop" (a Banksy/street art/some graffiti) documentary on Netflix, I started looking up graff sites. I'm now pretty interested in this craft and culture, and would like to give it a shot.
I've never had a nickname, so i'm still trying to decide on that. These are my first "tags" ever, and they're absolutely horrible. Everything about them is bad: letter structure, flow, and proportions....
But they're my first attempts and I would like some critiques and suggestions on them. Also, if any of these names are taken let me know (I searched Google and other graff sites, but didn't see anything):
Pokey (I hate my "Y" on this but don't know what else to do):
Speek (I like this name, but it seems common and may be taken):
Jut (simple name/easy tag, don't know how to even make this name work):
i like the speek one, work with that one
Knowledge, I hate you and how clean you shit is. Haha. I definitely like that tag.
Leefx, finding an original name is tough. I've gone through like 4 in the past 2 weeks. Don't try to make your first tags flow so much. Kinda sketch it out. Don't make them too big in the begining. Keep working on it man! We're here for help and support.
Knowthelegde - No doubt you have a talent for tags. Keep that shit up. Maybe you could get that K a tad bit bigger, so it doesn't look as cramped. The right side of your M needs fixing too. Maybe kinda do like the Left side of it. The bend makes the letter look awkward.
Ohh and. Pick what you're going to roll with Arketeck or Muke. (IMO You're gonna be able to do more with Muke, as it is shorter and more original.)
@knowtheledge where you from? i see someone who writes muck exactly how you write muke around my area
@busik spread out your letters a little more I like your B, your N is okay. Work with your M and A
Try Italizing your letters too might look tight
Do you guys know why Knowtheledge is pretty good at tags? Its because he probably took time with his work. If you want to improve your tag skills, fill up two notebooks with tags, alphabets, different words, whatever. Just fucking WRITE. Don't post something unless a) you're happy with what you got or b) are working on something and want some crits from other people. And don't take opinions from people that don't write. You can show them a garbage tag and an even worse piece and they'll say its cool or you rock. I'm guessing most of you are young, so get out and explore places, meet other writers, get inspired damn it. I fortunately have a friend whose got the hook up with some other writers in St. Paul and I've been kicking it with them. Take note, I'm just trying to help. Peace.
^ That's hard to do if literally about... 2-4 people write in your area. And they only write every once in a while down town.
Knowtheledge - love it
And Nice is right, take your time, took me 10 years to find a name and style i was happy with..
gotta agree with mn nice, ive been filling up pages n pages of my tags rather than going on here everyday.. repetition works man, at least for me
heres something ive been messing around with the last couple of days, would appreciate a crit

I thought it was pretty good for a first night attempt. I'd love some constructive criticism.
I'll be adding the full ovember to it sometime.
EDIT: Had to flip that image around.
Separate names with a comma.
