Slashed tag

A crossed out tag.

A Toy (otherwise known as a pawn) is a new or inexperienced graffiti artist or writer.

Toy tags or pieces are usually crossed out with the word toy or the crossers tag around it. Having a tag crossed out is considered a very deep insult and the writer of the crossed out tag will be likely to seek revenge by violent means.

A toy graffiti artist also copies either tags, pieces or throw-ups. This is very much frowned upon.

Style

The preffered style of most Toy artists is tagging, as it is the simplest, easiest form of graffitti to master. Tagging, mostly used to gain credibility in the area, is followed usually by Wildstyle pieces.
