Starting this week, every Thursday I’m going to show you one of the things I spend too much time looking up for no reason. I already have a really big backlog.

Up first: misspelled tattoos. The “CHITONW” tattoo got a bunch of press a few months ago—it was so outrageously bad that afterward a bunch of people got it on purpose in ironic solidarity. What else has been misspelled, permanently, on someone’s body? Unfortunately, I bet a lot of people don’t come forth. STET. Here are my favorites:

  • i went to tattoo lous in selden for my first tattoo, my whole family gets there ink there and a bunch of my friends too and all their stuff looks AWESOME so i figured go to a trusted place. I had irish jay do mine, i gave him three things that i wanted to be in one tattoo and he drew it all up together and it came out awesome, he fixed the sketch until i was completly satisfied and was totally cool the whole time. Best decision by far, i LOVE my tattoo and have gotten four more since then. The place is super clean and everyone is really nice and helpful. GREAT prices too! 110% advise going to tattoo lous! They’ve definitely earned their spot!

  • I think the last one is too black to be a tattoo, kind of looks like someone has written it in sharpie the rest are still ridiculous, people who get quotes for tattoos and don’t even make sure it’s 100% correct baffles me, it takes maybe 5 minutes.

  • THE TATTOOISTS THAT DID THESE SHOULD BE SHOT SEVERAL TIMES AND KICKED OUT OF THE NATIONAL TATTOO ALLIANCE! !!!!!!!!!! —————– RED

  • I have never seen a tattoo of a person from a photo that didn’t make the person look so strange, with all due respect to the man’s wife who died. The other picture with the mother and daughter looked like they had dirt all over their face. All they needed to do was change the tint from a brownish to a very light grey. Perhaps the artist was trying to age them a bit. As far as the misspelling goes, you have to wonder, is it the customer who insists on the spelling after the artist insists that the spelling is incorrect, or, do the both of them have no clue as to the correct spelling?

  • They have literally done the chineese thing and mixed the word Frank (old soul) with Funk (young spirit).. thats hilarious

  • Most people who get tattoos are ignorant self absorbed losers so why sweat over typos? I mean, they are paying someone to put tacky permanent graffiti on their bodies
