Last week, I received an email from a woman in Russia, who found my the 'Nikita' ambigram online and asked me if I would give her permission to tattoo it on her wrist. She named her son Nikita and really loved the ambigram. So, since she went the honorable route and asked me (she could've just taken it!) I thanked her for asking and asked her that once she gets it tattooed to send me a photo. Didn't think she'd do it, as I've received similar requests in the past...but this morning, there was an email in my inbox with several photographs! She loves it, was very excited...and so was I. I combined the two photos in one (see attached) for different perspective.
Oh..and this was my very first ambigram, created in early 2008.

Haha that's awesome! So cool. I think the 'son' thing is just a cover story, and you have a secret admirer! ;O
Always an honoring feeling having someone love your work so much they're willing to tattoo it on themselves. Nice work.
Thanks @Joseph Alessio, I wish that was the case!
Thank you @David Elliott, it is a nice compliment indeed.
Wow, cool!! @Nikita Prokhorov
This is really cool, that's awesome that you actually got some photographs too. Plus, how perfect is an ambigram to have on a wrist.. You can show it off to someone and be able to read it yourself at the same time.
