Specifically, we’re going to talk about what an ambigram is, the reasons why you may want to get one, and finally – some quality examples you can use. By the time you’ve finished reading, you’re going to understand ambigram tattoo designs in much greater detail. So let’s begin.
Firstly, what exactly is an ambigram? It’s a particular type of “typography” which is used to show one word and then read from a different angle, to read as another word.
This can make for some absorbing and meaningful tattoos, which is one of the main reasons why people choose them. Usually, people will want a particular word which has a powerful meaning to them, or something that just seems interesting and strikes a chord with their personality.
Some typical examples include Faith and Hope. In true ambigram style, it will read faith from one direction and hope from the other.
Other examples include Loyalty and Betrayal, Sinner and Saint, Regret and Nothing, Love and Hate, True and Love – and much, much more. You can also find more advanced ambigram tattoo designs which include more than one word. For example, you can find models which say: Faith, Hope, Love.
Short phrases can also be made out of ambigrams, such as I am what I am. This statement is virtually symmetrical, so it’s relatively straight-forward to create a working ambigram with it.
