Graffiti scratching or etching, is a form of graffiti using a sharp object to scratch metal, plastic and most commonly glass. Unlike graffiti using paint and marker pens, etching, often referred to as 'scratchitti' or 'tagging' can not be cleaned off using traditional methods. Its results are intended to be permanent.
In the UK, most graffiti scratching is in the form of 'tagging' where the 'artist' as they like to think of themselves, scratch their tag into the glass. A tag is supposed to be unique to the tagger and serves as calling card, or a form of marking territory.
A few words of caution; A very common reaction to finding scratch graffiti on your shop front is to think 'Why bother getting it repaired, it will only happen again!'
This is understandable, but consider this. A tag is a calling card, which to another tagger, represents a challenge to be bigger and better than the original. This results in two tags on your glass, two calling cards, two challenges and so on. This might sound extreme, but unfortunately this is how it works. We have seen countless examples of shop fronts damaged by one small tag and within a couple of weeks the entire shop front has been covered with tags, completely ruining the image of the business and deterring custom.
Be careful - if you see someone scratching your glass, please think about what they are using to scratch it. Very often it is a knife, screwdriver, box cutter or set of keys and with today's knife culture, attempting to apprehend the culprits may not be the safest course of action.
