This guide is designed to help those intending to find all the tagging
locations in Saints Row for xbox360 and unlock the bonuses and achievements
associated.
This guide does contain terms and descriptions that may be considered
"spoilers" for some.
These spoilers typically won't give away any secrets that couldn't have been
assumed by an experienced gamer, such as what locations will become "cribs" or
story based missions.
Rather than fill the entire guide with big announcements of "possible spoiler
alerts" I'm warning you now that if this may ruin your enjoyment of this game
don't read on.

This guide uses markers which may move depending on how much of an activity
you've completed, such as races and drug trafficking.
If you've started these activities but not yet completed them, these markers
might be useless to you until you finish them to get the marker back to it's
original point from the start of the game.

Ok, I've gotten two kinds of emails since creating this guide, ones thanking
me for making it and ones asking about this exact tag.  It stands to reason
since this is the only tag the programmers bothered to hide.  Almost all the
others are either in plain sight or in locations you should end up while
doing other tasks anyhow.  Now for the more elaborate description:

A few of you (including fancy man 02) have told me this one is technically
northeast of the middle pier not northwest, depending on which point of
the pier you are using as a start either or neither could be true so let's
just call it north.  Next, I was using the pier because it was a highly
visible point on the map but the fastest, easiest start point for this is
the horizontal road that forms the north border of this zone.  The road has
a short wall on its south side.  Over this wall (or through its gaps) to 
the south is a narrow grass alley that runs along the back side of several
factories and warehouses.  These buildings are connected by fences and
walls that essentially make them one long building from the east end of 
the road to the tag in question.  Either enter this alley from the east or
walk/ride along the road in a way that allows you to see most of the alley.
The tag itself is very close to where the alley runs into a fence making
it impossible to approach from the west.  If you come at it from the east
it will be on the wall to your right/north.  If you drop down from the
road it will be on the wall directly behind you, there's a tree nearby
that may make it easier to see where to drop in from.

If you're still having trouble or have a better/shorter way of describing
this email me.

...that should be all 75, you should now have unlimited stamina, yayyy!
If you cover over a tag belonging to a rival gang still in existence you will
get a wanted level from them, so be mindful of that if their members are nearby.





Bugs:

I never experienced this personally, but fastcarboy brought it to my attention
and a few others have confirmed its existence since I started asking about it.
Sometimes when you stand at the spray can and press Y the game will do all
the usual sounds and animations of tagging except put the button combination
needed to complete the tag on the screen.  But in typical game glitch fashion
reloading a save and trying again seems to solve the matter most, if not
all, times.

Update!  Quite a few contributors, including mkii.supra, hadies911, and
pcsdad41, were quick to point out that if you suffer this no button combo
displaying on screen glitch you can simply press the A button repeatedly until
the tag is complete.  XMajor25Cent also claims the update patch currently
forced on you by xbox live as you insert the Saints Row game disc fixes this
glitch, and since I got the patch the first time I put the game in and never
saw this glitch I'd tend to assume that's a correct assessment.  So on the 
flipside if you want a shot at tags that you can just press A button for
instead of the not too hard, not too easy button combinations the game gives
hopefully you read this and unplugged your ethernet cable before putting the
game in.



About me:

It's worth noting that I don't believe in paying 60 dollars for a video game.
In fact I wouldn't pay more than 30 for anything shy of the absolute undeniable
game of the decade.  I rent instead of buying and the copy of saints row I was
playing while making this guide now sits on the shelf of a video store.  Any 
and all help I can give you will be from memory and I can't join you on live
for co-op missions or play the single player simultaneously with you to aid
in directions by being able to tell the colors and/or signs on the buildings.


Contact Info:

I made this guide in hopes that it may help others with this rather time
consuming activity.
If it isn't helping anyone then I wasted a lot of time and energy finding these
tags and making this guide, though maybe not the finding part since unlimited
stamina can be a real life saver in this game, literally.
Some of these were far harder to explain than others and therefore will likely
be far harder to understand.
If you have any questions about my wording feel free to email me and ask them.
If you think you have a better way to describe a location that may benefit
others send it to me.
