What is wrong with the stupid kid tagging “Nokia”

By johnboy - 21 August 2008 58

I’ve always thought tagging was a particularly moronic form of graffiti.

The resort of someone with nothing to say simply screaming to the world that they exist and care nothing for the property of others. Pathetic really. (As opposed to stencils, messages, and street art which may be vandalism in some cases but at least have other merits).

But if I may don my grumpy old man hat… what sort of retard goes tagging the name of a multinational electronics manufacturer famed for making adequate but slightly dull mobile phones? And these things are all over Civic.

You go to all the trouble of climbing up to paint on that wall and you’ve really got nothing better to say except “I’m here and I’m dumb”?

What’s Your opinion?

Peter,
But then stupid MLAs come along and ruin the murals.
It’s a no-win situation 🙂

Totally agree, Johnboy. Taggers should be drawn and quartered as a service to the gene pool.

why would you make a picture of them and provide them with accommodation?

seriously, the ingenuity of this particular tagger or taggers, I have seen the same tag on a freshly painted wall, minutes after the painter has left. If they could turn their tags into a mural for the city in the same vein as the mad thing on adelaide ave, we might have a better looking streetscape.

Perhaps it’s Nokia’s advertising agency doing the tagging in an effort to make the brand look more ‘street’.
