We’ll take “Embarrassing Parenting Moments” for $1,000, Alex.
Orlando Bloom had a major “Oops” moment after he got called out for misspelling his son’s name on a new tattoo he showed off on social media earlier this week.
The actor’s intentions were great – he wanted to honour his 9-year-old son, Flynn with a tattoo of the boy’s name typed out in Morse code on his forearm.
The only problem? The long line of dots, dashes and numbers drawn into the actor’s skin contained an error. There was a dot missing and that missing dot changed the tattoo meaning from “Flynn” to “Frynn.”
It didn’t take long for the “Lord of the Rings” star to correct his ink and feature a new photo of the now-corrected tattoo with fans, writing, “finally dot it right! How do you make a mistake like that? #pinterestfail (read the small print).”
Bloom also posted a snap of his recent tattoo honoring his rescue dog Sidi, joking, “fortunately I know how to spell Sidi. Forever my boy.”
It’s a shame there’s no spell check for Morse code! Alas, crisis averted and the family is probably having a good laugh about the mishap.
