18 Awful Tattoos Spelling Mistake Fails Begging For a Coverup.
“It’s is my life” – Jon Bovi

Is spelling really that difficult? Why does it seem like such a large number of tattoo artists would fail elementary school spelling tests.

The foreign language mistakes are somewhat understandable but words in the artists native language are unforgivable.

Remember these tattoos take time. It’s not the same as accidentally hitting the wrong key on a keyboard. They looked at these tattoos for an hour or more without realizing they were ruining the body of the client who placed their trust in them.

URGENT MESSAGE FOR ALL TATTOO ARTISTS!

Before starting a new project involving letters of any type, do a quick google search for the word your about to permanently tattoo onto someones skin. Even if you think you know how to spell the word, double and triple check. Then check again.

Why? The artists who completed the work showcased below thought they knew how to spell also. A 30 second google search would have shown them how wrong they were. Most importantly it would have saved the people with misspelled words on their bodies a lot of needless heartache.

The poor souls in the list below were attempting to express themselves in an artistic way. Instead they announced to the world they used a discount tattoo artist. As always, you get what you pay for in this world. Hopefully, none of these people were forced to pay a dime for these disastrous tattoos.

Spacing so Bad It’s Honestly Sad!

I believe this tattoo says

“You be the anchor that keeps my feet on the ground. I’ll be the wing’s that keep your heart in the clouds.”


 "You be the anchor that keeps my feet on the ground. I'll be the wing's that keep your heart in the clouds." Tattoo Spelling Mistake Fails in Desperate Need of a Coverup, Awful Tattoos.

Needless to say the artist had a bit of a spacing issue to go along with a lack of talent issue. Poor Girl.

It’s get better!

No friend, it’s permanent. It’s not getting any better.

No Regerts! Tattoo Spelling Mistake Fail

Why are there so many people with this mistake on their bodies. Do tattoo artist not get online and look at the mistakes of other artists. You can’t look at a list like this without finding a “no regerts” tattoo fail on it. I don’t understand.

Lilo and Stitch = Les Tattoo Fail

I’m guessing the word Les under the image is intentional because how do you mix up Lilo and Les but as some of the other tattoo spelling mistakes prove, anything is possible.

Nice looking Les and Stitch Tattoo!

I didn’t mention the amazing drawing of Stitch this artist was able to recreate with such precision. It’s too bad the word Les ruined an otherwise perfect tattoo. Wouldn’t you agree?

Prome Queen Spelling Mistake Tattoo Fail!

This one speaks for itself. This beautiful young lady wanted to tell everyone she believes she’s a prom queen by having it written in large letters down her spine. However, that’s not at all what she ended up announcing to the world.

Never Don’t Give Up Tattoo Fail!

I guess this guy never gets anything accomplished considering his slogan for life is to give up everytime. Never don’t give up, lol. You can’t make this stuff up folks.

Never dont give up tattoo

Come on Man! All you had to do was look at a map!

There’s no way the tattoo artist this girl picked for her compass style tattoo was sober. This artist had to be drunk or stoned to mess up the back of this poor girls neck this badly.

East west Tattoo Spelling Mistake Fails in Desperate Need of a Coverup, Awful Tattoos.

It looks as if a decent artist started the tattoo doing North and East then handed the job over to an apprentice who lacked the ability to think. I mean putting west at the bottom and South to the right. The artist was either high as a kite or did this intentionally.

Wrongs and wrongs!

Social media influencer Naz Mila wanted a tattoo that read, “Only God can judge my mistakes and truths” but let her tattoo artist do the translation himself. Apparently, his grasp of the English language was a little different than hers. 

Wrongs and wrongs! tattoo fails. Look how proud he is of this translation disaster! Social media influencer Naz Mila tattoo fail.
Look how proud he is of this translation disaster!

The tattoo she ended up with reads, “I can judge a single god with my wrongs and wrongs” which has a completely different meaning if it has a meaning at all.

Ghostly Portrait Tattoo!

This one’s not a spelling mistake but I wanted to add it to prove a point.

There are some really talented tattoo artists out there. All you need to do is search Instagram for the various artists in your city that do the style you desire.

It’s true portraits are one of the hardest tattoos to do correctly. This artist assured the victim in the photo he was an expert at portrait tattoos since the guy wanted his girlfriend immortalized on his arm. It was supposed to be a gesture that proved his love and devotion for the woman he loves.

Yep, Nailed it!

The nicest way to say this is that the tattoo ended up looking like a ghostly version of his girlfriend. Do you see why you should search a little longer for a competant artist in the style you’re looking for?

Stop asking if I’m a Vegan!

While this may not be a spelling mistake. It is just plain stupid.

It happens every time. Within 20 seconds of meeting a vegetarian they manage to casually announce to anyone within earshot that they are a vegan.

Apparently this woman got tired of announcing to everyone she meets that she doesn’t eat meat, she decided to let a large facial tattoo do the talking for her.

My question? Why did she feel the need to tell everyone she’s a vegan every five minutes? People are so strange and so dumb.

Skittle’z’ or Skittles Tattoo – Taste the Rainbow

I won’t comment on this girls choice of tattoo or it’s placement. Only on the artist apparent lack of google search on his phone.

Misspelled Skittles? As I said in the beginning, how about next time when starting a project do a google search for skittles before placing a permanent tattoo across someones entire chest.

Please share this list. It will be appreciated more than you know. Thank you for reading, Mickey.
