There are many styles of graffiti. Most graffiti artists develop their own, unique style, but even so, these many styles can be categorised. One of the more popular and common styles seen is bubble lettering. In bubble style graffiti, the letters are big and rounded, like puffy bubbles. Typically, the letters run together and overlap or crowd each other, as is common with other graffiti styles. Learning to write bubble style graffiti just takes a little practice.

  1. 1

    Write your name, words or message in clear, capital letters, spacing them apart on your piece of paper.

  2. 2

    Outline each of the letters, making them thicker. Make them thick enough that the edge of one letter crowds or overlaps with the edge of a neighbouring letter. Now erase the original letters drawn that are inside the thicker letters.

  3. 3

    Round the corners of your letters, making them more bubble-like. If you like, add a rounded outline to surround the entire word or name. Your bubble letter graffiti is finished.

Tips and warnings

  • Colouring your graffiti will take practice; it takes time to get the shading just the way you want it, or to lend a more 3-dimensional look to your bubble letters. Try using colours that contrast and create highlights.
