    They used to do something like that in pieces, but it'd say two different things at one time.

    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?
