    I just got into it so I cant really say its anything for the fame at all..
    Right now I am just doing it to test my art I guess.
    Once I know the " unwritten laws " of graff I will probaly step up to try and to do it for some props and " fame "

    i write because i dont have any friends, and nothing else better to do, might as well do something that has astonished me for years.

    i think graffiti would just die if it was legal. like u said. think about it.
    `no rush of addren. cuz its legal.
    `the toxins in spray paint would eventually damage something in this world.
    `maybe the ozone.
    `there would be more beef than ever.
    `evryday nice pieces would get buffed cuz there would prob be no room to write anyways
    `what kind of respect would u get for hitting heaven spots and other shit if its leagal?
    `anybody can hit legal spots.
    well i guess u get my point.

    graff needs to stay illegal. the crime and time is what should change.

    and when i said graffiti ruled the streets and one day will again. i mean people will repsect and for one learn how to read and take notice. and change the worlds perspective of things. graffiti isnt just letters and numbers and cartoons..

    mainly because i have such a love for art, it runs my life,if i get cuaght in the zone sketching in my black book then i'll skip work to finish it...i plan making a living off of art when i'm older so i don't hesitate to it take the top on my priority list. it realls helps me exspress myself, i really have bad pyschological and emotional problems and nothing helps besides drawing...it helps me center myself,get my chakras aligned, if it weren't for art and my mother i would kill myself, life wouldn't be worth living for me.i love graff for the; art, expression, fame, and so many other things...it's not a hobby, it's a way of life.

    fuck the fame n fuck the friends n fuck nebody who does it to be cool


    i do this shit for nobody

    cuz nobody cares graffitis nothing to alot of the population


    i dont care how much shit you get in or the injuries you sustain or how dirty my shit gets

    i do it for the feeling of being one with the wall. for applying part of yourself onto something so foreign
    i do it for everybody too see. the lovers and the haters
    i do it because theres nothing else for me
    i do it because i dont give a fuck
    i do it for no reason
    and every reason possibly comprehendable
    i do it as a fuck you to everybody whoever doubted something about me
    or who ever wished ill upon me
    i do it too bomb
    and i do it to burn
    i do it because though society has a foot up on me
    ill always have the real higher foot on society
    i do it for the feeling when your going 2 the wall ur about to hit
    the time you spend hitting it
    n the feeling u have walking away

    i do it because it dosent matter what comes and goes i will always have this
    and no matter how many times you try and stop me ill never be stopped

    i do it to feel human. fuck i do it 2 feel completely inhuman

    theres too many reasons to categorize why you do it
    i suppose some people do it for less lofty reasons such as fame
    which is a perk to it
    but theres no reason to do it
    n why care
    just do it. n i aint talkin fuckin nike.

    i got interested in it a while back, and i just stuck with it....i really dont know...i think pretty much the main reason is the sastisfaction....like looking at somthing you made all by yourself, and seeing it look good...thats a good feeling. i guess also because you get to do somthing that people say you cant/shouldnt/wouldnt do...that makes you happy.

    I was writing graff for ages until i got caught writing by the police. i was't up that much or anything but i was bombin this big container with a mop.
    Break fluid.
    Paint.
    Meths ( Paint thinner )
    Always goes down well. B)
    Then the police show up i had paint all over my hands and t-shirt so i knew i was caught..


    After that me and a couple of my mates started to write. I apparently inspired them to write graff again. LK CREW. SACTONE. :D
