One would think that if you were planning to Get some body art is going to be permanent, that you would plan the design very carefully. Likewise it would seem if you're going to get tattooed with some form of writing, that you would carefully examine the text for mistakes especially spelling errors or grammatical errors. Furthermore if you are a celebrity with tattooed body art, where the paparazzi and world's gaze would examine everything they did to yourself, that you would be extra extra careful if you got words tattooed on you. Sadly or luckily for us, the audience, that is not the case.
Celebrity tattoo mistakes is one of the favorite topics of tabloid newspaper and Internet gossip. And with the love that the world of Hollywood and rock 'n roll as for tattoos, there is no shortage of body art errors to fuel the gossip machine. In the end, you really have to wonder, “what were they thinking?”
One classic mistake is errors made in a foreign language. David Beckham's tattoo for his wife Victoria, done in Hindu, supposedly includes an erroneous letter “H.” That's never seemed to bother him however. Rapper Coolio, wishing to honor his Insane Clown Posse, got a tattoo that read “Jugalo Cool." Unfortunately the correct spelling of that first word includes two of the letter "g," and not one. He maintains the spelling was done on purpose.
Singer Rihanna, who made a bit of a stir by tattooing some tattoo artists in New York City even though she didn't have a license, has been the latest fodder in the world of tattoo mistakes. Her most recent piece, which is clearly visible on the left side of her neck just a few inches below her jaw, is in French and reads "rebelle fleur." Here's where the debate part comes in: is it a mistake or not? Those experienced with French grammar are claiming the noun and adjective for "rebellious flower" are in the wrong order, thus rendering the phrase gibberish. However, Rhianna has recently said that the phrase is meant to be two nouns, "rebel" and "flower," and that there is nothing errant about her new adornment. But if it is two nouns, isn't the tattoo still missing a comma?
