Born in Los Angeles, CA and raised in Orange County, San Francisco, and New York, Mark Palmer is the most sought-after Ambigram artist in the world. His background in formal calligraphy, illuminated lettering and graffiti art combine to give him nearly fifteen years of experience with typography, and culminated in his discovery of the Ambigram art form in early 2004.
Since then, Palmer has created nearly twenty thousand Ambigrams for extremely satisfied clients. Most of his Ambigram designs are paid the highest tribute possible as permanent tattoos in the skin of tattoo collectors all over the world. And, while he considers anyone with one (or more) of his Ambigram tattoos as a celebrity, some notable collectors who have commissioned Palmer for tattoo artwork include: Deron Williams, Tim Duncan, Jordan Farmar , Dee Snyder, Toryn Green, Bryan Hopkins, Mike Portnoy, LeVar Burton, Kristen Renton, and many others…
Palmer’s tattoo art has exposed his talent to the world, and has also brought corporate clients knocking. He has had the unique opportunity to work with companies such as Porsche, Nike, Jack and Jones Denim, Australian Gold, Qwest, and others in developing innovative Ambigram treatments for advertising campaigns, logos, packaging and other media.
Palmer spends much of his time producing original Ambigram artwork in his private studio and running Wow Designs Inc. (the exclusive publisher/licensor of his Ambigram artwork), as well as Wow Tattoos, Red Chapter Clothing and providing all of the Ambigram artwork for Glyphusion, Inc. Palmer currently resides in sunny Southern California.

Founded in 2008, Red Chapter Clothing is the world’s first and only line of premium rocker apparel based entirely on Ambigram artwork.
Fanatical dedication to excellence and tireless research and development have led Red Chapter to only the highest quality raw materials, fits, dye/chemical treatments, printing techniques and embellishment finishes. These attributes coupled with 100% hand-drawn, one-of-a-kind artwork have brought critical acclaim and support from celebrities such as Jamie Foxx, rock icon Corey Taylor of Slipknot, and media outlets like the California Apparel news who wrote a glowing article about how Red Chapter Clothing is doing something unique in an industry that, until now, thought they had seen it all. Red Chapter Clothing is a joint venture between Mark Palmer, his older brother Ryan Palmer, and his best friend Bryan Hopkins, lead singer of the Hollywood -based rock band Paperback Hero.
Founded in 2008, Glyphusion, Inc. is a joint venture between Ambigram artist Mark Palmer and software developer Mark Hunter.
Glyphusion is a highy sophisticated tool developed by software developer Mark Hunter that uses Ambigram artwork drawn by Mark Palmer to generate custom Ambigrams in two of Palmer’s most popular lettering styles. Unfortunately, the Generator cannot return a successful Ambigram solution 100% of the time. However, the Generator has nearly a 90% success rate and is considered far superior to other attempts at automating the creation of complex-solution Ambigrams. The Glyphusion Ambigram Generator is available for license, and is currently being used for unique personalization in the jewelry/collectible space and is also featured on WowTattoos.com as an alternative to Palmer’s more expensive hand-drawn design service.
