Ambigram tattoos – how they can impress the opposite sex
Getting a Tattoo can be a great step towards making yourself look sexier and more unique.
Tattoos have been around since Neolithic times, mainly used to mark someone’s uniqueness and associate that person with an attribute, and if you don’t have any idea what tattoo to get an ambigram tattoo might be just what you’re looking for.
Now if you don’t know what an ambigram tattoo is, don’t worry about it! A lot of people don’t know what it is since ambigram tattoos are a rather new concept that is developing into a hot trend.
To understand the concept, you first must learn the meaning of ambigram, which is a calligraphic design of a word which can take the meaning of another word depending of the reader’s viewpoint. Or, to put it in simpler terms, it’s a word written in such a way that if you read it from a different angle it takes the form of another word or, is a perfect palindrome for the initial word even when it’s turned upside-down.
In 1908 Mitchell T. Lavin published in his magazine an ambigram of the word acoechumpsac sent to him by a reader, who considered such vertical palindromes to be so rare that he attributed the graphical properties to the word and not the design.
However, virtually almost any word can be turned into an ambigram tattoo by a skillful designer, making it easy for anyone who wants to tattoo their name as an ambigram on their bodies.
But you might ask yourself, how ambigram tattoos help you do better with the opposite sex than regular tattoos.
Well, as you know, most people like cleverness in the opposite sex and you can use ambigram tattoos to show that.
For years it has been common practice to get a tattoo of asian letters in order to seem multicultural and because of the exotic design, but as more people started getting such tattoos that design lost its charm. Also since the wearer of such a tattoo probably didn’t know the particular asian language he had the tattoo of he couldn’t help but give off a slight impression of ignorance towards the meaning of his own tattoo.
I always believe that if you get complimented for your tattoo, as you probably will because of the cleverness of an ambigram tattoo, you should be able to tell the one who complimented it about the concept, its meaning and its personal meaning to you and not just stay there and say you got it because it looks pretty.
And ambigram tattoos are perfect because they have a concept with a beautiful history that you can tell to prove that you got your tattoo for all the right reasons. Personally, the only problem I’ve found is that anyone who sees it will ask to see more ambigrams or sometimes ambigrams of their own names.
