Neat design. I didn't do the branding and I know nothing about it.

Isn't it weird when people take your stuff and upload it to other sites? Came across this, thought I'd let you know. [link]

I didn't draw it, I just replicated it on skin. It's a John Langdon design I think. Thanks for the heads up though. I appreciate it.

A fine capture of both elements without any loss or specific tells of each other.

Without a doubt one of my favorite applications of ink into skin I have been fortunate enough to witness.

I had to put on a cap so I had something to 'doff' to you fine sir.

Hi,
I'm doing a school project on tattoos, and I was wondering if I could use this photography to illustrate the presentation booklet. You'll of course be credited in the booklet.

It's called an ambigram. It was used in ancient times.

Awesome tattoo, I must say.

nice tatoo, perfect concept, trying to relate these 3 seems a good idea


though I would actually believe that

art represents continental philosophy
and
science represents analytic philosphy.

or at least that how it should be???

one question. This is amazing by the way. But how do you go about doing those reverse designs. I've seen a few, and tried it out, but it never seems to work.

I don't actually design these. I just tattoo them. I'm guessing they sit down with a piece of paper and just work it out bit by bit.

When it comes to tattooing, it all hurts, it's just a question of how bad. It can range from not bad at all to extremely painful. Everyone is different.

This is a design of John Langdon's

He is a famous Ambigram artist and did do the work for Angel's & Demons.

This is the exact same ink I want to get done in the exact same place.. I just booked my tat appt 2 weeks ago and just found the image today.. what are the chances of that?
