Los Taggers have left their mark on Tijuana. Defiant slogans are smeared across the slums lining the U.S.-Mexico boundary, the gated mansions of hilltop colonias , the downtown malls and boulevards. "PK" means police killer (as it does in Los Angeles). "HEM" stands for Hecho en Mexico (Made in Mexico). "HAP" alludes to a group of taggers known as Homeless Altamira Punks and/or Haciendo Artes Prohibidas (Making Prohibited Art).
