ambigram

ooo... tonight i was going through some of my drawers and found something i would love to share. it's an ambigram i designed quite a while ago. an ambigram is a word or motif that reads exactly the same when you turn it round or flip it 180 degrees.

it's in the form of my daughter's name LLARA KAYE. see if you can figure it out it... i know it's a little difficult to turn your monitor upside down 180 degrees :D...

initially i wanted to make this into a tattoo... i still want to make this into a tattoo... but i'm a coward :) ( i know jen will laugh at me :( ) so... i dunno... but this was an interesting find :) i should keep this where i can see now...


happy pimping! :)

  2. Hi Luthien..what paint you use to draw on ceramic? is it arcylic paint..I dont like the picture on the ceramic deco that I bought so I spray paint it in white, it turns out quite glossy, and I wanted to draw roses on it. This is my first attempt, and I'm such a chicken..do u have rose or tulip flower pattern that I can copy? TQ..in advance

  3. Oooo! That looks so Celtic. It could also pass for Elvish. I love it! Yeah, I'm chicken about tatoos too, but that's beautiful! It would look so good on something, maybe a memory book? Thanks for showing us. xxoo

  5. Wow Luthien, this is SOOO cool! It's beautiful, creative and mysterious all at the same time.

    I'm a chicken like you when it comes to tattoos but at least now it's here for you to admire all the time.

  7. I know exactly what you mean Luthien, one of those sychronistic moments in life where the universe is guiding you. The one you created is just so beautiful!

  9. OMG -- that is AMAZING! I have never seen anything like this, and you are right - this would be the PERFECT artwork to use as basis for your very first tattoo. **wink** But I won't laugh at you for being a coward. Truth be told, it took a couple of shots of tequila for me to get my first ink (hey, we were in Mexico - it seemed like a good idea), but after that I think I just very quickly got used to the needles. I think it would just be the coolest thing for you to wear this ambigram on your "body canvas", to carry your baby girl with you everywhere you go.
