When I was little, my dad got me interested in ambigrams (also known as inversions), symmetrically-drawn words and names that read the same when flipped or rotated. Here are a few that I’ve designed over the years.

Ambigram of "Lisa"

Abmigram of "Roseann"

Abmigram of "Jim"

Abmigram of "Robert"

Abmigram of "Alec Vance"
Alec Vance
(This is the only reflective one of the bunch; the rest are rotational.)

Abmigram of "José"

Abmigram of "Chris"

Abmigram of "Richard"

Abmigram of "Daryl"

Abmigram of "Happy Birthday"
Happy Birthday

Ambigram of "Thomas"
(“My name in print! I’m somebody now!”)

  1. Ive been searching for the perfect ambigram of my sons name to get tattooed on my wrist and the only one Ive found so far that I find absolutely delightful is your design (Thomas). I know these are your designs, I just wanted to get see if it was alright to get your design of Thomas tattooed on myself? Also, I was wanting to see if you would possibly try to design Thomas one way with Family upside down. Ive always wanted to learn how to draw such wonderful art. You are trully talented.

  2. Hi, Gwen. I'm honored that you like my work enough to want a tattoo of it. I'll give "Thomas/Family" a shot, and if I can't come up with something for that, you're more than welcome to use the "Thomas" one. Thanks for your kind words!
