New Tool To Check For Compatibility
Of Your Custom Ambigram!

1) Name/Word/Phrase - Forward

2) Name/Word/Phrase - Upside-Down


You can type the same name/word in both boxes or you can type a different name/word in each box. If the Compatibility Checker says "No," there may still be a solution, but your design will probably not look good as an Ambigram. If the answer is "Yes," the design will still need to be verified by Mark before he can complete your Ambigram.

"Tattoos for Women" magazine featured one of Mark's ambigram tattoos in their March/April #82 Special Edition magazine. The featured design is a "Loyalty/Betrayal" design down the side of a woman. Congratulations to the unamed woman for her kick ass tattoo! The magazine is full of amazing tattoos, make sure you pick one up at a local convenience store like Seven-Eleven.

Toryn Green, lead singer of the band Fuel, gets custom Mark Palmer Angel / Devil and Sinner / Saint Ambigram Tattoos
Toryn contacted Mark over the summer about getting custom versions of Mark's Angel / Devil and Sinner / Saint Ambigram designs drawn for him in conjunction with the release of their new Fuel album titled "Angels and Devils." You can watch the videos below of him getting the awesome tattoos. The design work on either side of each tattoo forms a "TG" which are Toryn Green's initials.
The Angel / Devil Ambigram was tattooed at Graffiti Palace Tattoo in North Hollywood, CA in late August. Toryn brought along the Fuel film crew to document the experience.

The second matching design says Sinner / Saint. It was tattooed by Kim Saigh who works with Kat Von D on her new TV show L.A. Ink. The show is filmed at her West Hollywood shop High Voltage Tattoo. So make sure you watch the LA Ink video below to catch Toryn's episode of him getting his Sinner/Saint Ambigram tattoo.
