What is the most disturbing Graffiti You've come across?

A couple of weeks ago, I explored another abandoned High School with a few of my relatives and we came across probably the most disturbing graffiti/art that I've seen in my explorations so far. I know there are way more disturbing ones out there but this was very unsettling to say the least. Especially since someone had been murdered in this school before.

But I'm curious now. What is creepiest or most disturbing art that you've come across while exploring a site? Any interesting stories regarding it?

Some of you might recognize the location. But here's what we found...

Also I should have moved this to the main forums. If any moderator is able to move this thread there, would you be able to please do so?

If something like graffiti disturbs you, consider taking up something less troubling like miniature golf perhaps.

Nah dude. I think you're taking this the worng way.
I don't mean disturbing as in it scares me. More of something that others might find creepy.
I absolutely love stuff that's disturbing and spooky. It's what I live for and part of why I love urban exploring.

Sometimes people paint things on doors around here that look like eyes or man sized figures and if you have the wrong type of lighting it can trip you out.

Haha oh yeah I can definitely relate. There was a graffiti of some creature right behind a door I opened that did make me jump a little.

Indiana Jones wasn't an archaeologist, he was an urban explorer. Archaeologists do a lot less running and a lot more paperwork.

When I was new at this, it was common for construction companies to send in armies of hired goons to violently evict working-class neighbourhoods. They have other tactics too, including leaving threatening graffiti.

In November 2008 I visited one neighbourhood next to a major train station and saw some of the most violent hired goon graffiti I'd ever seen. There's a gallery for it at the location's entry in the LDB.

This one says "Danger" followed by a skull and a body that's been decapitated and castrated.


And here's one showing a lynching.


Here oddly is Popeye.


Those look clownish, but they are death threats.

The hired goons continued to harass the local evictees for months, forcing them to fortify themselves inside one building. They built a watchtower on the roof and placed all sorts of accelerants in the building making it dangerous to force entry. When the hired goons tried to raid them they threw things down on them, including molotov cocktails.

So the police decided to get involved. They declared the evictees terrorists, and launched one of the dumbest operations in Korean history. They filled a construction crate with anti-terrorist riot police and lifted it by crane up to the roof.

Things went wrong and the raid sparked a fire, killing five evictees and one cop.


After, the surviving evictees were charged with starting the fire and thrown in jail. The cop who ordered the raid won a National Assembly election and was later put in charge of the national airport corporation. The evictees were all exonerated after the current president was elected. Pundits have argue whether the evictees or the cops should be blamed, but I think a significant amount of blame should be placed on the use of hired goons, and I've used these pictures to back up that claim.

It's a naked man painted on a desk chair. If you look closely, there's an actual knife planted on its genitals.

Holy crap, that is freaky!
All the stuff I've encountered are just left by teens mostly...probably. So it looses some of its' creep factor.
But that is ghoulishly dark. I'm surprised by how much history there is behind this.
Very fascinating stuff.
Were these graffitis from Japan or another country around the region? Basing it off the language written next to some of these.

The language there is all in Korean, and only has the words "Danger" and "Remove."

Graffiti doesn't scare me. Graffiti is good in that it means:

a) Other people have been here
b) Authority types don't come by often
and
c) The people who were here likely didn't get caught

When there's a place I'm trying for with NO graffiti, that's when I'm nervous.

The only graffiti I encounter that's actually disheartening is racist/homophobic bullshit.

But, in one instance I did find my real name sprayed really big in ordinary handwriting, and that just didn't sit right! HOW DARE YOU!
