i dont tell anyone who doesnt need to know. i treat it like i'm in the cia. on a need-to-know basis. the only people who know are my best friend (who paints also) and my mom and stepdad. my stepmom and real dad dont have a clue because i dont live with them. people see my handwriting and ask if i 'tag' and i say no..which is true..i'm a writer not a tagger. i've had people see my stash in my room and i deny painting..its really funny. even when i'm out somewhere and i'm obviously the graffiti writer i still deny it. no one needs to know who i am..just enjoy the work.

Guest Can you sign my book???

Its kinda hard to keep people you see on the regular from knowing...Like when Im at work, out of habit ill just pick up a marker and write on anything...If Im just chillin, ill grab a pad and pen, not thinkin of whos around me...Its so addictive, Ill walk into the bodega for my bodega fresh forty ounce, and if the glass is all fogged up, you know that shit is gettin wrecked...Serious though, Ive driven by my fillins with pops in the car, and hes like all sly, hey that looks familiar...And we just play off it...Im pretty much an adult, even though I dont want to be, but at this stage in my life, either your with it or not...If you dont like, cool, just dont preach to me...If your with it. hey Ill write your name dude...LOL...

Guest dukeofyork

the rents know, thank god they dont see hardly any of what i do..

they can spot my shit a mile away though. they just KNOW if they see something ive done, it really sucks. its like a child always recognizes his/her mothers voice, they recognize it instantly...

my close friends know, and im always up front with any women in my life...the last one left cause i went out too much...:rolleyes: oh well, life goes on.

sometimes i do like catching tags when i know people will be caught off guard, that shit is fun..but can be hot.....

i depends who it is. when i go to my parents house and they ask me what ive been doing, ill tell my mom cause shes an artist, and most artists respect graffiti. my dad hates it and i love pissin him off. one of my roommates hates it and feels bad for the peoples stuff i paint on. other than the people im close to, i dont want anybody to know. the feeling of painting just gives me a good feeling, that im giving the city character, and not leaving it bland. i dont do it so i can tell people.

Guest circus freak

to tell you the truth i have never been too worried about who knows and who doesnt. dont get me wrong; im not goin to the top of a mountain and scream it for everyone to hear but if the conversation comes up then i will take it from there. i think it also depends on where you live; if yor a bomber in a big city where yor shit isnt as noticable as in a small city then you have less to worry about. i think it always good to keep yor guard up butstress over it too much... on the other hand, sometimes its good to be paranoid.

In this day and age your better off not telling anyone what you do. Infact your biggest enemy will be your own pride and ego. The internet as famous as it can make you. It can also break you. Just ask Ovie ket utah and the rest that have been busted and had thier own computers and e-mail as evidance towards thier convictions. anonymity is simple . never get dirty and dont tell anyone what you did. keep it simple and dont put any pictures on a pc and never keep anything at home. Yes you have to live a double life but trust me its worth it. Also remember that the MAN is always watching and they are part of all these web sites so watch what you say and remember when communicating from your home computer it does have whats called an IP address and you will be tracked down. Sorry coppers but you`ll have to work harder now..So peeps remember keep your mouth shut and your person clean and say no to vandalizm..

if you paint for years and years then it slowly becomes apart of your daily routine. everyone in your life will either get it, get over it or not but its pretty simple. even if you don't do graffiti you probably don't tell everyone all of your business so its not that hard to keep a skeleton in the closet.

it's talking to other writers you really need to worry about

 

they're the ones who are likely to snitch on you when they get pinched or get you into beef/dramatics by running their mouth on some dumb shit

nobody knows except about 2 or 3 of my friends...its just very awkward to talk about it when they have no idea about it.....they think its childish and stupid and it makes no sense...and when they call you a "tagger" it makes you extremely irritated as well......people just dont understand that its something you engulf in your life for some reason or another.....they dont understand and i dont want to explain it to those who dont understand..i keep it to myself and the others writers that im close to...family doesnt know....and that is how i would LOVE to keep it....they dont understand what graffiti is and the art form of it...they dont understand that it could be the olny thing that makes you happy...they dont understand that you're miserable unless you're painting.....HAHA i feel like i just wrote a poem..but to be honest its true.people are better off not knowing.cause they won't understand.

Re: i dont hide shit from anyone

 

i tell everyone straight up:

im gonna do fr8s tonite

im doing brooklyn streets tonite

im doing a roller tonite

no need to feel ashamed about it,or even feel like a dick in some cases

fuck that, i tell everyone "im a graffiti writer" yes i bomb,yes i piece,yes ill write your name for you,whatever it is you do,make it known and be proud.

graffiti is real,real situations with real concequences.

it says alot to be a graffiti writer,u risk your ass everytime you out,whether it be gettin bagged,gettin beat,or dying.

so i say fuck everyone,if you cant except the fact that i like a little thrill in my life and i enjoy painting, then fuck you.

 

NEKS NEKS NEKS NEKS NEKS NEKS NEKS ABK YMI 2001..........

 

HELL YEAH! i'm the same way, i mean, i don't go braging about it, but if someone ask me i just tell them, i'm proud of being a graffiti writer, no doubt! & also after 10 year is kindda hard to hide it, graffiti is just a really big, big part of me & my life...

pretty much all my good friends either know I write or they write themselves. I try to keep my name on the DL tho but people talk you know and it spreads fast. I have a big problem with this lame ass toy that knows who I am and I have beef with him, he lets everyone know who I am. Imma have to deal with that situation soon
