gotta love the ambigram.. just finding (and/or recognising) the ever elusive word or name that lends itself to this treatment is difficult enough.. well executed.. nice work

Few marks create as much presence as ambigrams do. And you definitely did a great job. Your lady should be pleased!*How large will the tattoo be? Though I don't have any myself, a friend of mine is heavily into the stuff - as I understand thin lines are hard to achieve (in this case I would imagine they may pose a problem for those connecting the letters?)

Reply
OcularInk Jul. 30 '07

Wow! Many thanks to you all!**@ sans : Excellent point, my friend. The tattoo won't be any smaller than what's here. Having many tattoos myself, I was very aware of the line weight. The thinnest lines on the ambigram will tattoo just fine. :-) However, I appreciate your concern. P.S. I saw the one logo you uploaded. Very nice typography. I'm looking forward to seeing more.

It reminds me Angels and Daemons book by Dan Brown where I read first time about ambigrams. I find it very very hard to execute it into graphics. I admire this work very much. Its very attractive and special. Congratulations to the brilliant job.

Always meant to comment on this, what I love about it so much is that its not immediately apparent that its an ambigram. The name 'ann' is just so legible, this is really special.
