Top 15 Worst Tattoo Spelling Mistakes

What are the best types of tattoo spelling mistakes? They’re the kinds that are permanently inked on someone else’s body. Unfortunately, tattoo parlors don’t come with a spell checker.

The worst tattoo spelling mistakes prove that the tattoo artist is more than happy to give a client a permanent reminder of how he was never a spelling bee champion. Both men and women seem to exercise poor judgment at the tattoo studio, though, as you will soon see.

Keep scrolling for a treasure trove of questionable body art.

See Some of the Worst Tatoo Spelling Mistakes

15.) You Only Life Once

Tattoo Spelling Mistakes


When you don’t know what to tattoo on yourself, consider getting a tattoo of your favorite quote or a meaningful symbol. But don’t forget to spellcheck first. One unfortunate person had the following tattooed onto his arm: “You’ve gotta live every singel day like it’s the only one. What if tomorrow never comes?” This person was so eager to live his life that he didn’t have time to check his spelling. The same went for the fool who got “You only life once.”

14.) Your or You’re

These tattoo spelling mistakes are unbelievable


People like to use tattoos to brag. College girls may have tramp stamps that say “prome queen” or “sweet pee.” If you dare to have the phrase “Your not better than me” tattooed across any part of your body, you can bet money that the general population is better than you in at least one thing.

13.) Chi-Tonw

These are some of the worst tattoo spelling mistakes you'll ever see

You should reverently respect any “esse” or “esse” wannabe who has a big tattoo etched across his collarbone. It takes a big man to endure that kind of pain. When that tattoo says “Chi-Tonw” instead of “Chi-Town” (a nickname for Chicago), go ahead and snicker as you shake your head. If his homies try to make you feel bad, hold your ground and scold them for not watching their friend’s back and catching the blunder themselves before the needle touched the skin.

12.) Tomarrow Never Knows

When a person spells “tomorrow” with an “a” instead of an “o,” it’s obvious that Hooked on Phonics didn’t work for him. Maybe Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas should start recording songs that teach teenyboppers and adults how to spell more big words. If there’s one thing that “tomorrow” knows for sure, it’s how to spell its own name.

11.) My Angle?

Tattoo spelling mistakes can make something have a different meaning


It’s so sweet when a person has a set of wings tattooed on her body with the word “angle” written in big, loopy letters. Kudos to those who think that geometry is heavenly. When a person refers to their children as “angles” in permanent ink, how does she explain this blunder to the kids? Better yet, how does a kid’s teacher keep a straight face on parent-teacher conference night?

One of the most hilarious is a pic of a lad who chose to have the immortal words, “Ledgens live on” in massive letters across his chest. Unfortunately, so will this horrible tattoo spelling mistake.

7.) No Regerts? I Can Think of One or Two

No regerts is a bad spelling mistake


Makes you wonder if this guy knew that tattoo studios don’t have erasers.

Their, they’re… It can be quite tricky. Spelling champions are definitely not made in the gym, so the carrier of this piece of art should have spent a few more hours in the library or at school.

2.) Unfortunately, This Will Not

Spelling mistakes can sometimes last forever


Few things look as ridiculous as a misspelled tattoo. There are far too many examples of terrible tattoo spelling mistakes on the internet. Don’t join this unfortunate group. Do your research, take your time to decide on a design, ensure your tattoo artist is careful, remember spellcheck is your friend and don’t forget to check the difference between “two,” “to,” and “too.”

1.) This One Will Certainly Hurt

Bad spelling mistakes


Choosing to get a tattoo can be a big decision. After all, while tattoos no longer need to be permanent, removing one can still be a time consuming and expensive process. No one likes to think they’ll be making a mistake with their tattoo, so consideration from the design to the artist must be carried out in full detail.

Tip: Many people aren’t comfortable telling someone when something they’ve done isn’t good. But if your tattooer presents you with a sketch that isn’t exactly what you had in mind, you need to let him or her know. Don’t let your misplaced sense of kindness result in a permanent mistake. If your tattoo artist reacts poorly to your constructive criticism, they’re definitely not the right tattoo artist for you.
