Scribing, also known as scratchitti, is a style or method of graffiti in which a scribe is used to tag on glass or plastic surfaces. There are two popular types of scribes. The first is the arrowhead scribe, held between the thumb and index finger, used for quick connectible-style tags on glass. The second is the pen scribe, usually used for more detailed tagging. Scribing can be loud, especially when doing connectibles on glass. Scribing differs from normal graffiti since scribing is almost impossible to remove. However, one strategy for "removal" is to make many more scratches on top of the existing tag.
