    The word graffiti initially referred to inscriptions and drawings found on the walls of ancient ruins.  The term was used to refer to the Catacombs of Rome or Pompeii.  The current use of the word typically refers to vandalism, which can be done for many reasons.  Some people graffiti simply for art, while others use it to express their opinion on political or religious matters.  Many gangs use graffiti to mark areas which they claim to control which has lead to many impostors attempting to lay their claim on a certain area.
