I've been attempting to design an ambigram tattoo for the past couple of years, but I'm never happy with the design. I finally drew this last week based on a typeface I saw and would like some feedback.
It's supposed to be my mother's maiden name: "di Noia." I'm afraid that I've gotten to the point where I can read the name despite how illegible it may be.
Sorry for the bad sketch and copy - I had to scan my sketch on the copy machine in my office. I'm in no way a professional designer, so any tips to improve it would be great. I'm trying to go for an old-fashioned/European/traditional tatoo/almost pirate-like look, hence the blackletter.
This is in NO WAY a finished piece, obviously; so please don't comment on tracking and such - that stuff will come later! :)
