Either symmetricality (along one or more axes) or asymmetricality communicate some message, but not much of a specific one, as far as I can see. Although snowflake pics are pretty recognizable.

I've never seen a color rorscach, but that does not mean that they don't exist. However, since warm vs. cool colors do communicate an introvert vs. extrovert message, I would guess against them. Moire (kinduva false brown) would happen if the apprehender had poor eyesight and could not distinguish between the inked and noninked portions. I would guess that the apprehender's eyesight would be known and they would be provided with proper spectacles. If they're being checked for psychological anomalies, they would have most likely been previously checked for visual acuity.
