Tagging no pretty picture
While the recent attacks spotlighted the problem, there is nothing new about graffiti tagging, even in Ruston.
Graffiti has existed since ancient times, with examples going back to ancient Greece and the Roman Empire and can range from simple scratch marks to elaborate wall paintings. Spray paint and permanent markers have become the most commonly used materials in modern-day graffiti tagging.
In most countries, defacing property with graffiti without the property owner’s consent is considered vandalism, which is punishable by law.
