Ambigram Tattoos Are Not Unfashionable
Ambigram tattoos were a trend in the 90s, but they have not disappeared. They are not only lettering, they can also be figurative designs.
Turned upside down, they can keep the same meaning, or show a different one. Lettering ambigrams are more popular, with their complex calligraphy and hidden meanings. You can put what you want in an ambigram, names, words or even quotes. Common ambigram letterings includes values such as Family, Love and couples of opposition, often religious. But figurative ambigram are even more trippy than the lettering ones. If you reverse them, a beautiful girl can turn into a demon, an old man or a skull. Ambigrams are full of esoteric symbols. They find their inspiration on best-sellers such as Dan Brown's books (!), or in optical illusion art. Artists such as Escher and Arcimboldo are still inspiring traditional and neo traditional artists for their intricate rotational designs. If you enjoy brain games and don't want to design that can only be read in one way, then you should try ambigram tattoos.
