Tags , designs, and styles of writing are commonplace on clothing and are an influence on many of the corporate logos . Many skateparks and similar youth-oriented venues are decorated with commissioned graffiti-style artwork, and in many others patrons are welcome to leave their own. There is still, however, a fine line between vandalism as an artform, as a political statement , and as a crime. Bristol -born guerrilla artist Banksy is an example: when councils have removed his works, they have been met by public outrage. Banksy's claim is that official vandalism is far worse than that perpetrated by individuals, and that he is decorating buildings of no architectural merit whatsoever. [ citation needed ]
In the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF), a subordinate military court, or the officer in charge of the SAF Detention Barracks, may sentence a serviceman to a maximum of 24 strokes of the cane (10 strokes if the serviceman is below 16)  for committing certain military offences or for committing aggravated offences while being detained in the Detention Barracks.  In all cases, the caning sentence must be approved by the Armed Forces Council before it can be administered.  The minimum age for a serviceman to be sentenced to caning is 16 (now de facto , since entry into the SAF is restricted to those above that age).  This form of caning is mainly used on recalcitrant teenage conscripts serving full-time National Service in the SAF.
