Thank you for the info Martin. I have noticed that graffiti all over San Bruno. It surprises me to see it up in Rollingwood as much as I have the last week or so. Would love to know what "Liquid" means. I will report my neighborhood's recent ones. Thanks again.

Carol, "liquid" means absolutely nothing its simply just a tag name made up from something they saw or can relate to or even a nickname graff writers come up with names left and right and most times will start off with a few names before they settle with just one.
