    So i was wondering....do your parents support what you do when you go out every night and come home when the sun is rising reeking of paint, weed, beer and vagina? Or when you visit them twice a year and you look like someone beat you up with a wet bucket of paint?

    Do your parents look the other way? Do they threaten to ground you? Do they shake their heads when you come visit during the holidays and answer "yes" to "are you still running around tagging?"

    Or maybe they buy you markers and paint for your birthday, relate the "awesome graffiti piece" they saw on their way to work, etc.... I know some folks out their dig what their spawn after hours.

    "Well Ted, winning the soccer championships is one thing but MY boy crushed a 12 x 30 wall overlooking the business district last night." ::pause to puff away on pipe::

    I got my mom digging on graffiti big time. I come home for christmas and she had gotten me a nice fat coffee table book and some Sakura solid paint markers. She just advises to not get caught. Thanks mom. :love2:

    they used to get pissed and threaten to take my paint away, and shit like that, but i think they've realized that they cant really do anything about it. i tell them when i'm painting most of the time, and i've really broken things down for my mom. the whole its not about drugs and gangs talk and what not. She still seems to care about me getting caught, but kind of turns a blind eye. The main thing is our trust, and while i am painting things that aren't mine, i'm not really causing THAT MUCH damage that is street visible. While i'm living at home, i'm going to just stick to freights and chill spots, partly out of respect for my parents. If i go down, they are the ones paying my way out of jail, paying for my lawyer, and in some cases being held responsible for my actions.

    My main man's parents are a differant story. They'll take him to buy paint at home depot (since they won't selll to minors) and just really don't give a fuck. Whether its out of being cool people or out of ignorance, i don't know.

    mine where ok with the actual act, just worried about me on the train lines, and getting caught, although they wouldnt actually buy me anything graff related.

    It all changed after i got time, they think ive quit now and dont even like me doing legals.

    Im to old for them to have any affect tho.

    my mom likes graffiti, she doesn't care about the markers I get from no where and the paint and ink too. she bought me some paint, but thinks i'll only use it to paint on cardboard.my dad kinda likes graffiti, but he just thinks that all my ideas on fun a re a waste of time like breakdancing, and skeching. well, I think my mom wouldn't really care if i told her I paint some walls in thr canals and tunnels. she'd just probably say not to get caught, and to do it in the day time. we'll see wht she thinks, or maybe not.
