Graffiti is a popular art form in the 21st century. It is both good and bad. It can look very nice, but it is illegal in most areas. This article will teach you how to become a legal graffiti artist/tagger.

STEPS
  1. 1
    To understand the difference between legal and illegal "tagging" let's understand the terms.
    • Illegal tagging, as shown in the photo above, is an example of a gang signature.
    • Legal tagging is a free-style painting or mural, sometimes called a billboard, done with permission of the owner of the wall or building painted.
    • 2
      Get familiar with the various styles of graffiti. There are many, like handstyle and wildstyle. Do some online searching to get acquainted with all the styles.

      Before even getting to walls and markers, you need a name. Make a tag name that is made and used by only you. Never copy someone else's name. Try to think outside the box and come up with a name that relates only to you.

      Write your tag name on paper and start from there. Extend the ends of letters, or curve lines a bit. Add quotes and lines to your name. Make it creative and unique. Give it some flow. Make sure that the letters aren't too far apart; most graffiti names look like one big letter.

      Practice more, and improve. Do not be afraid to experiment. Let your thoughts go free. Soon, you will get the hang of it. Remember, even if you're a good tagger, it's always a good idea to keep improving on your name.
    • 6
      Don't be simplistic. Your tag can be anything. Names are usually reserved as a gang claiming ownership, and legal painting often avoids this. Your painting can be a portrait, a modernist expression, or any imaginative symbolic painting that improves the look of an aging wall.
