Fiction into Actuality

Sometimes when I write something I will go back and consider whether or not the completely made up bit of fiction I wrote is actually plausible. In my latest series, which is about a race of vampire hunters, I was writing about one of my male characters. He's a bit edgy (or at least likes to think himself so). In my mad dash of writing I said, "His tanned arm sported a new tattoo. An ambigram that read Vamp in one direction and Hunt upside down." I read that through a few times wondering if it could be done and amazingly it can. I love when something I make up can become something real. My children joke that I will have it etched into my own skin someday. Perhaps if this series gets published.
