    Personally, I think those who "thought it's no big deal" really meant they "thought they would not be caught".
    Most places frown on graffiti and consider them criminal and a form of public vandalism.
    Graffiti at tourist hotspots and attractions... well, I think it's quite safe to assume it will be considered a criminal offence in almost any country.
    Only difference, type of punishment, fine, cane, prison, ban etc

    So stick'em in jail for six months (not a fan of caning, male or female). Will generate lots of press and perhaps deter someone else who might otherwise think it isn't a big deal

    When I was in Athens last month, I thought graffiti was a national sport there. I have never seen so much graffiti anywhere I've been. Fortunately, nothing at any of the monuments I went to.
