Graffiti- it's not all cocks and balls!

















I love the word GRAFFITI- originates from the Greek "graphein" meaning "to write". Graffiti (graffito) a drawing or message on a flat surface- originally referred to marks found on ancient Roman architecture, found on Hadrian's wall etc. Now found everywhere and some of it bloody brilliant!

Hey Boo! Those are some cool photos. I once worked for a lawyer (barrister) who had a graffiti "artist" come in and paint the stairway in his home going up to the bedrooms. His kids loved it!

Very eye-catching. The bodybuilder reminds me of a female gorilla in a bad mood.
