Ambigram Wanted!!! Jan. 23rd, 2012 @ 10:53 PM Reply

I am looking for a talented artist to make me an ambigram that says Anderson. For those who don't know, an ambigram is text that reads the same way upside-down.

I need it to look nice and fancy, and i'm planning on getting it tattooed onto my forearm.

If anyone thinks they can do it and has some free time, I'd love to see what you can do for me. I'll post it when its inked and i'll be sure to give you credit!

Thanks :D

Mm, I fancied making an ambigram recently.

If you can pick three fonts from here, I'll have an idea of what style you're looking for, and give it a go.

I'd get rid of one of the tails of the a/n (the short one to be precise), and maybe the d/s works better with a small capital D...
eh fuck it; I'll draw what I mean

I appreciate the effort, but my current tattoos have tails so it would fit in better with them :p

Cheers, yeah the d/s is the problematic part of the ambigram. I've had another go with the ChopinScript font, just to see if I can get better results. The "d" is a bit curlier, so hopefully the curly tail adds to the "s".

Haha when I say i'm doing something, I go through with it. This is my 5th tattoo now, I also got a small Vault Boy (from the Fallout series if you don't know) emblem inked on my wrist too, so when I don't have my watch on I can look at it hahaha.

Thanks again everyone!
