If your tattoo was spelled incorrectly

would you leave it, cover it up, or add a correction?

  • I'd probably ask them to make that letter into some sort of design. It would probably make me crazy.

    The one I can't get over is where they crossed out the 2nd misspelled word, spelled it correctly above, but did such a bad job of it, it still looks like a spelling error. And then, the first spelling error is still there untouched.

  • Horrid horrid horrid! I would PROOF-READ the tat before the ink went into it!

  • i almost had one of mine spelled wrong- at my own fault too! it was an initials tattoo, and since i was so used to seeing "LMN" for Lifetime Movie Network, i always jumble up the letters when writing my daughter's full initials which are LNM. luckily my friend was with me and pointed it out- the poor artist had to go back and change it on his paper lol!

  • Well I would never go to a shop where the people did not proof read or at least question spelling. Shoot for my last tattoo the artist questioned my choice in color! I let him talk and asked him his opinion and this is what he said. His words were something like this 'Are you sure this is the color you want- I feel it would look better a touch darker. I want to make sure you are happy but at the same time. This is my art. This is my tattoo. You are just the wearer. I want to make you happy, of course, but it is my job to make sure it will look pleasing when I am done.' After that I have to say. I feel any artist who misspells words takes no pride in their work. So sad. If it was me I suppose I would find a better artist to get it corrected/covered and get my money back for the original art work.

  • The thing that concerns me, is that we see those errors so frequently, I bet half the people that saw them wouldn't catch them!

  • being as i would have done the research, and made sure i gave them the correct spelling, if it was in a spot i could watch, id be making sure they spelled it correctly. if they screwed it up id make them responsible for adjusting however they need to
