i love graffiti.

It's the only thing I don't like about living in Saint George is the lack of true graffiti artists. Do we have gangs in Southern Utah? Of course. The Aryan Nation is right in our back yard (La Verkin). We only lack in gang-bangers with artistic talent. Our "artists" tag like prepubescent third graders. Simple letters and shapes is about the most they can accomplish. I have actually taught a few little bangers the difference between graffiti art and vandalism. Graffiti art is a talent, something to be proud of. Vandalism is embarrasing graffiti for no-talent crackheads. If your going to tag something, make it worth looking at. Either make it impressive or amusing in some way. Like this one:
