An Ambigram is a word or symbol which looks different when seen from different directions or perspectives. You might have seen ambigrams in the logos of certain companies, or as plot devices in certain books like "Angels and Demons" by Dan Brown. In that book, the Illuminati has several ambigrams for the elements of nature.
Robert Langdon, the protagonist in the book, is named after John Langdon, a famous ambigram artist.
Some ambigrams are to be viewed upside-down, some are to be seen in a mirror.
All these ambigrams make for cool tattoos or even just a logo to print on your stuff.
