This is what customers shouting after they figured out that tattoo artist misspelled the words they requested.I mean how in the world they misspelled the words infront of them?Is it the educational system failing them or is it them failing the educational system?What do you think? Example of misspelled tattoo... I'M AMSOME- Sounds like Oh Am Sorry Am drunk!It's amsome right?Lol SWEET PEE- I was thinking that the customer is diabetic so she or he choose this word than Sweet Pie...

Here's the thing though, when an artist is doing a tattoo, unless it's free hand, it's drawn out so that it can be transferred to your skin. The artist shows that to you, to make sure it's what you want. Then positions it on your skin and transfers it and lets you check the positioning to make sure you like where it is and how it looks. This is two opportunities for you, the consumer, to check the spelling. If you didn't bother to make sure the artist spelled the tattoo correctly, or didn't even realize that it was spelled incorrectly, that's on you. It's not the artists fault. Seriously, if you were having something permanent put onto your body, wouldn't you take the time to make sure that it's spelled correctly? I'd call this the consumers fault more than the artists fault in most cases.

OMG. LOL! You just made me choke on my coffee. Sweet Pee! LMAO! That is so funny. But I guess not so much to the person who had to bear that tattoo for a lifetime. Unless it's deliberate. I love skin art. I have a couple of tattoos and I think I would react strongly if the tattoo artist screwed up on my intended design. Not only will I sue, I will give him a swift hard kick in the groin.

What is the fascination with tattoo's? Especially those just above the backside! I'm expecting to see one with the words "Warm wash. Do not wring." Well, at least the owner wouldn't be able to check the spelling unless they were a contortionist.

Its a popular spot because there is lots of surface area and its easy to hide or to show.

who is this tattoo artist. and from where this thing incident happened. i wonder how he misspelled. he should have asked the customer for the spelling . or maybe he thought all alone he knew the right spelling and was so confident about the spelling. so it may be a surprised for him to be told making a wrong spelling. i think that an tattoo artist before starting making a tattoo should give a drawing or write the design or write down the words he would make so that the customer will know if the customer would know if the artist knows exactly what the customer is asking for. and not just expect the artist to know it always. and if they have written it down on piece on paper the exact spelling regardless whether the artist knows the spelling already or not, just to be safe and so if the customer agreed if it was the spelling he wanted then there won't be any more problem. and we can say who to blame if the artist still made a mistake after they have made model or design or pattern to follow.

oh I can beat both of those. my uncle did his own tattoo. not with the proper machinery, just cutting and inking, as many people did in the army back then. only he's dyslexic. he now has a tattoo that reads Greased Lighting.

This is funny. I guess always print out you want in advance, so they have a hard copy. I wonder, though, if you couldn't redo the ink as it was fresh. Kind of the way you do can do oil painting parts over, if you make a mistake.

lmao That is so funny! I actually just got a tattoo. Its super cute. Its a piece of sushi with a cat face. It represents my cat because my cat is named after my favourite kind of sushi SAba. I would like to get the symbol for Saba underneath it in Japanese. I'm going to check for the correct spelling with my Japanese sister in law first. You hear all the time of western people getting Chinese or Japanese symbols that mean something completely different. How did those people not notice. Usually they make the outline first and show it to you... lol if they didn't notice the spelling mistake ... I say too bad for them.

Mistakes do happened even on the most unlikely situation. Have you seen the Australia's next top model? The host announced a wrong winner. How awful was that to happen on a live TV.

Now that is really funny and sad all at the same time! Maybe the tattoo artist should have each customer write down what they want tattooed on their body that way the artist could see exactly what they wanted. That way if something is misspelled then it's the person's fault!
