    Hey there everyone, I am 100% sure that this is a thread that has graced this forum many times. Since I did not find it active right now, I am going to ask the question: Which is better bombing or piecing?

    I personally thing that both is appropriate, but I wanted to see what everyone thought. I just got in an argument with someone who said that piecing is for people who think graff is art, and the true vandal bombs..., I am not sure how I feel about that since I can see arguments on both sides, but before I ramble my sac off I want you all to respond.

    both are totally different ummmmmm aspects of writing.

    it takes skills to do each of them, while some relate in both categories... they are both very different aspects of graff.

    bombing atleast to me, is more about having the nuts to go out and destroy shit, and get up. there is a style to it, and you can have mad style in your bombed letters and throw up etc... but its not the same as peiceing...

    piecing is more about the letters and overall style to me... not everyone can piece as good as the other, and to me, peicing brings out your skills more, being clean, dope colors, the letters... etc...

    :D both are dope...

    and its important to do everything, tags,bombs, pieces, rollers, trains...the works...

    be well rounded = :king:

    I think that you should be good at all aspects of writing. I see some people that will do nice pieces, but they can't bomb for shit. Handstyle is important, too. I see some kids that have had the same hand style for 3 years. That is LAME. You need good handstyle on top of bombing and piecing skill. But then there's the exact opposite...People that can bomb the hell out of shit but then they can't do a real piece. I think having piecing skill is more important than bombing skill, honestly. It isn't that hard to do bombs and throwies, but to do a real piece takes some effort. I myself need to get better at piecing, really. I can piece, but not like alot of the writers around my area can. It takes some time, trhat's for sure.

    i like bombing 50x better than peicing

    1. im too lazy to go out and peice, make sketches, decided color skemes, spend 45% at a wall

    2. i like bombing, simple, easy, fast, destructive, gets your name up

    thats basicly it

    piecing doesnt even intrest me a little bit.. probably cuz i cant piece and i dont have the ability to draw crazy shit like that.. bombing is more fun.. i way rather walk down the street and see some cube truck role by with a phat ass throwie on the side then go to some quiet area and see a sic piece..

    same man handstyles are nothing... i hate when ppl go bombing with like 20 cans and all they do is tags.. tags are ment to go on telephone polls and electrical boxes and other small places.. its stupid when u see ppl do tags on huge walls... do throwies..

    The way i see it is a peicer gets mad respect for being good at it, but gets more and better respect if he bombs, now a bmber gets respect if he hits mad shit up and bombs good but gets more respect if he peices. So bomb and peice. Thats how i see it and thats how alot of others do to.
