It's so sad when your tattoo has a big, old misspelling in it.

You're forced to carry around your own illiteracy -- or that of your tattoo master -- for the rest of your daze!

But at least the gaffe provides amusement for other people, so let's send a big thank-you to The L Magazine for assembling some of the most delightfully idiotic ones of all-time, making for one big inky-dinky doo-doo.

I have a Japanese friend who takes photos of Kanji characters that English-speaking people have tattooed on their bodies. He notes what the person thinks the characters say and the real meaning. Many of them are hilarious. He's been doing this for years and plans on turning it into a book when he has enough in his collection.

I simply would put a red squiggly Microsoft word misspelling indicator under the Awsome and tell people I meant it to be ironic...

Oddly enough, I was just thinking about this very topic recently, after seeing a pornstar with a gigantic tattoo across his chest that said, "LA COSTRA NOSTRA". Presumably, he was going for "La Cosa Nostra," the insider name for the Mafia, roughly translated "Our Thing".  I actually felt compelled to Google the guy's tattoo to see if it had some alternate meaning in Italian I was unaware of....er, nope.  (though I think "costra" in Spanish means "scab").

Are we really judging for the misspellings? Is that all?

Old English font is hard to read  - but that is a "W" not an "M"  The tat says,  "i'm Awsome"

Well, Steinhope he didn't actually tattoo "I'm Awesome". He got I'm Amsome.  LOL He am some what? He am a dumb ass!

It's one thing to be an idiot. It's another to wear it on your arm your whole life. Sad.

Oh. So it's a different misspelling than I thought. I thought they were going for "HANDSOME".

 I had a hard time reading that tattoo.  I think that is a "W," ( I don't think that's an "m,")  but the artist left the "E" out of awesome.

teckno...one hopes that the "aweful" typos in your post are tongue-in-cheek deliberate? Not to mention the really bad grammar and incorrect punctuation - LOL
