If something is inside out, can it be said that the object is inverted?
My understanding of the word inverted is simply "the opposite state," but I would like to get a bit of clarification just to be sure.

The word you're looking for is everted (turned inside out). Sorry if it's a bit stomach-churning, but here are 884 written references to everted stomachs. Surprisingly, most of them are nothing to do with dissected dead specimens - quite a few animals evert their stomachs to feed, including starfish.
Inverted can also mean inside out, but then it can mean 'swapped' in all sorts of other ways too.
