There is no tattoo more fraught with peril as when it involves the written word. People everywhere should be aware that tattoo shops DO NOT employ professional editors to double-check your work before it's "published." That job falls squarely on you, the customer. Tattoo artists are awesome, but they are also human, just like anyone. Think before you get inked! Here are some of the funniest examples of people who were just a little to "yeah, whatevs" before the artist got started:
Nobody knows who the 'Systsem" is, but it's likely some secret, powerful cult who does awful things like abducting people in big yellow vehicles and making them learn how to spell. Yeah dude, fuck them! Wie wants to ex press areselves haw wee chooses!
Apparently our man here is missing his third set of knuckles, where the missing noun that would complete this phrase presumably lies. Our next what? Course? Is he a waiter? Car? Maybe he's a salesman or a game show host! Whatever he's going to give us, we simply can't wait!
People who can't spell need a lot of encouragement and ego stroking. Yes, Courageous Misspelled Back Tattoo Guy, you are "awsome" and don't let anyone tell you otherwise!
A misspelled tattoo is indeed a tragedy. This shit is so meta, it's hurting our brains.
And our winner is a mistake that's launched a movement. When a passionate Chicago resident went in to get the common city nickname "Chi-Town" inked on his chest, the artist, a HS honors graduate, made a mistake on the stencil. Unfortunately, when he showed it to the client for approval, neither of them noticed the error. Now the client is suing, but the artist's friends have all been getting "Chi-Tonw" tattoos as a symbol of support. This has spread like wild fire recently, and many other customers are now asking for the same thing. They even have T-shirts!
