Mom renames her kid after tattoo spelling typo

The internet is full of ‘tattoo fails’. We just can’t seem to get enough of sniggering at the hideous artwork, questionable life choices and unfortunate misspellings that others have permanently etched into their skin.
But one Swedish woman has turned her failed tattoo into a whole new identity for her child.

Local newspaper Blekinge Läns Tidning reported over the weekend that 30-year-old Kyrkhult resident Johanna Giselhäll Sandström went to a local tattoo studio around three years ago to get the names of her two children inked on her arm. After consulting with Sandström about the correct placement of the design, the tattoo artist did his thing and Sandström went home with what she thought was a permanent declaration of love to her kids Nova and Kevin.

There was just one problem. Kevin had become ‘Kelvin’.

    Swedish babe. Wadda ya expect? Ya know from the Blond Viking country that’s embracing the Islamic Caliphate like a depressed wacko embraces the butt of a .38 Colt special after he inserts it in his soon to be toothless mouth.

    I’ve worked on a lot of Kelvins.

    Does she even know that her kid is now named after a boat’s engine?
