    alot of peoples style is already moving towards that in certain crews.
    the swashes and the really script fonts.
    not to mention symetrical pieces have definitly been done.

    check out the other piecing threads. you'll see what i mean.

    an exact mirror image would be hard but i guess anything is possible?

    Seems to me that would use too much brain power and knock out normal functions such as the ability to pick my nose and scratch my ass at the same time...
