Ambigram tattoo

20110725-081203.jpg

Here is a picture of my most recent tattoo. The tattoo is a type of ambigram called a symbiotogram which is a word when turned 180 degrees reads as a different word.

The words visualise/materialize are my basic philosophy in life. I really believe that if you focus on what you want and see it happening in your mind then you can make it a reality. I know this has personally worked for me many times.

One example of this was back in 2004, before ‘the secret’ had come out and before I’d even heard of the law of attraction I began writing down the things I wanted to have happen in my life.

I imagined having all the money in the world to travel the world, go to art classes all day and buy a house. At the time I literally had no money, no job and was living in an overcrowded house. I had been sitting in my pyjamas for 3 days feeling thoroughly miserable. However just writing my desires down made me feel better and inspired.

Literally within a week my life turned around and I won a place on deal or no deal in the UK where I eventually won
£22,000 and did what I set out to do- travelled the world, went to art classes and put a deposit on land to build my
home.

I had always wanted the words visualize and materialize as a tattoo but wasn’t sure how or where to get it when I came across an ambigram generator website called wow tattoos.com . Here I just entered two words and it came up with the designs below which I drew out.

I had decided I didn’t really want the font to be so gothic so had to start the extremely tough challenge of designing the font myself. I searched the internet for help on how to create your own ambigrams and found, well there’s no easy way! It took about a week of headaches to get something I was happy with.
