Ampersand Tattoo Designs by jkthedragon Ampersand Tattoo Designs by jkthedragon
Well I'm jealous of people with ampersand tattoos now, but I wanted to design something unique. I like the music version of this design, a heart made from a treble clef and a bass clef, or whatever it's called, so I decided to do a version for literary geeks like me.

Done in both black and pink. I like it better in pink to be honest, but it'd probably look better on the skin in black. Also, the first one has a connected ampersand, and it's unconnected in the second. (I did a rough job connecting them too, I know.)

So, does the first one look enough like a heart? Does the second one look enough like an ampersand? Which do you like better? Lemme know. :D

I'm flattering myself, I know, but if anyone wants to get it done, just lemme see a picture when you do! :) It'd be awesome if you credited me with the design, too, but not required.

Holy frigging crap. I LOVE this! The music note version is a cute & clever idea, but way overdone (I've seen like 3 people with it tattooed). I have never seen a design like this. I prefer the pink one :D I've been trying to come up with my next tattoo idea & I think I may have found it. If & when I get it done, I will definitely credit you!

PS: I used three ampersands in the above comment. Another reason why I love this design, hehe.

Thanks! I also love the music note concept, but agree it's way overdone. I've also created another version of this which I Think is more recognizable as a heart (most people who see this just think, "and?") where the ampersand is upside down. I just uploaded it to my scraps if you wanna see: [link]

If you like that better I can do a stylized version for you if you'd like. And if you get either one tattooed I'd love to see it- I have yet to see a design as an actual tattoo so it would be very exciting. :D

honestly, this is a seriously beautiful design. im really into typography and you've really looked at these symbols and really worked with their shapes. i have to say, its also kind of funny if you think about how it translates out "and...?"

do you mind if I get the question mark added onto my ampersand next time I get inked?

No, not at all! I'm flattered actually. :D I'd just like to see it when it's done, and if you post it it'd be nice if you credited me for the design, but you don't have to.
