Orlando Bloom Got A Tattoo Of His Son's Name In Morse Code On His Arm—But He Apparently Spelled It Wrong

Trending

We love to make fun of people who get tattoos in other languages and manage to get it wrong.

I'm looking at you, Ariana.


But morse code seems safe, right?

Well, Orlando Bloom found that in such an intricate graphic language, mistakes are readily possible.

Bloom hoped to dedicate his new tattoo to his son, Flynn.

Bloom said that the morse code inked on his arm spelled out Flynn's name, and that the numbers were the date (01/06/2011) and time (09:03) of his birth.

But there is one snag...

The morse code spells out "Frynn."





In Morse Code, "Flynn" would read:

. . _ . . _ . . _ . _ _ _ . _ .

Bloom's tattoo reads:

. . _ . . _ . _ . _ _ _ . _ .

It's the difference of a single dot.





Bloom has yet to comment on the misspelled tattoo.

But why get something imprinted on your skin if you haven't double checked?





In 2020, let's all resolve to double check the permanent ink before it goes on our skin, shall we?
