The artists behind the best script tattoos always find clever ways to turn simple words into art. One way to do this is to do an ambigram. An ambigram is a word or phrase that is drawn in a manner where it will say something from multiple points of view, forwards and backwards for example. It takes a very skilled artist to design one of these where the legibility holds up in both directions. In this gallery you will find some truly impressive ambigram tattoos.
