graffiti

Graffiti is an Italian plural form. One scrawl on a wall is a graffito. But few English speakers are aware of this distinction and say things like “there’s a graffiti on the storefront.” This is not usually considered incorrect; but people who know Italian may disapprove, so you might want to use the word only in the plural.
