I designed this tattoo for her, and she wasted like no time getting it done. (Because her brother is the tattoo artist!) My upcoming tattoo is similar, it's the same concept, but a different design. I'll get mine done on Oct 3rd.

It's an ambigram.

And if you flip it over:

I've already offered on Ravelry, but if anyone is interested in me designing an ambigram tattoo for them, let me know. I don't charge much! :)

That looks neat! It took me a bit to realize it's flipped and mirrored. Very cool!

This is quite possibly one of the coolest tattoos I have ever seen. I want one! (I just don't know what I'd want it to say, lol)

Ok i'm a total idiot I'm looking at the tattoo....Which by the way is totally Faboo....and i see the first one says knit and for the longest time (a good 5-10 min) i can't figure out what the second one says:??. Then my DH finally looks at it and right away without even thinking he says it says purl....:doh::doh::doh:...Of course my non knitter DH who thinks knitting is weird would know what it says :teehee:

Uh.. no, I hadn't! But I swear, I had that idea months ago! I was thinking about getting another tattoo while I was knitting and thought if I could only knit for tattoos! :teehee: LOL

OMG! Can you do names too? My daughters are Jillian and Grace...probably impossible but it can't hurt to ask:-) Jill, Gracie...those could be subbed in too...
I can only try, huh? I think Jillian & Gracie would be easiest since the number of letters is closest. ;)

If anyone is interested (I've already gotten a few inquiries), I'll do ambigrams of anything you want for $25 plus $1.50 a letter. For example, Knit/Purl would be $25 + $12 (8 letters x $1.50), or $37. You can choose a font style you like (blackletter, script, old english, etc) and I'll work from that.

That is so cool.
Silver you are such a talent!
I love ambigrams.
I just noticed the other day that my copy of Clive Barker's 'Abarat' is designed as an ambigram on the cover.
I may have to enlist your ambigram services in the near future.

silver- that is very cool.. i was thinking i might add it to my queue o tattoos..:lol: i have to finish my back, then i can get my left shoulder (a finch and humming bird together) and then my right shoulder (some flowers)
but these i think i would get it on both my wrists so it reads both ways flipped. ;) when i am ready, i'll contact you :mrgreen:

:cheering: yay! I'll look forward to drawing up some ambigrams for you! :)

How cool is that!

I'm too much of a chicken to get a tat, but I like to look at them. I'd like to get something small on my foot, but I don't have a very high tolerance for pain.

I had a friend that got a Sun put around her belly button....um....and then she got pregnant.....yeah, that was one HUGE Sun ;)

Read an interesting article about tattoos and knitting here (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20630522/site/newsweek/). Actually, I guess it's about pop culture, but knitting and tats are in there!

i've thought about getting a line drawing of 2 butterflies done on my wrist in the new(?) white tat. i want it to represent my 2 dd's.

your ambigram is super cool.

Commercial ho that I am,
I immediately thought,
"That design is original and therefore Silver
owns the copyright."

T-shirts?
Caps?
A whole blinkin' line of Silver Ambigram stuff on CafePress?

LOL Well I wouldn't do that with this design, or any other I've made for other people. But... maybe... I could design something else? :think: :biting:
