Tagging

The only tagging going on here is in the ring. As far as crayons or spray paint being used, it would be considered "tagging" only if the graffitist signed his work. Either a real name, street name, nickname, initials or personal logo, so you can mark your territory.

This is a simple case of a bored little boy (off to the left) with a Crayola and a Dream.

Graffiti

Were the kids of the era tagging the timbers of the ring? The lines don't look natural.

And I thought tagging was a modern problem.

[The scribbles here seem to be in crayon. - Dave]

Crayons or spray paint it's still considered "tagging".
