Tattoos have experienced a massive resurgence in recent years, with celebrities such as Cheryl Cole, David Beckham and Cara Delevingne all proudly showing off their ink.
However, as these disastrous tattoo typos demonstrate, spell-check is a powerful tool and should not be ignored.
Check out our list of the top 20 shocking tattoo fails.
1. * you’re
This tattoo ticks all the boxes of common grammatical errors that has the internet grammar Nazis up in arms. Your vs. you’re. It’s vs. its. Dealt vs. delt. It has them all . Truly, a great entry to the tattoo typo fails hall of fame.
2. More *you’re
Presumably an ironic message to his grammar, another entry on the list displaying the classic your vs. you’re. Conclusive proof that you should always show your tattoo idea to at least one person who can speak English before getting it done.
3. Tradgey Tragedy
Just straight-up misspelling your tattoo is a new and refreshing spin on a tired and worn cliche.
4. Tomarrow is Another Day (For Tattoo Fails)
Perhaps referring to the inattentive nature of the classic tomato/marrow hybrid.
5. Sweet Pee Tramp Stamp
Sweet, delicious pee.
6. Give Me Strenght
“See you at work on Monday”.
7. Prome Night
What better way to immortalize a special night than with a tramp stamp that doubles as a warning flag for any prospective husbands.
8. Don’t Fudge Me, God.
This tattoo fail is less “typo” and more, “the importance of correct font choice”.
9. No Regerts (Not Even One)
“You have no regrets? Like, not even a single letter?”
10. No Dream Is *Too Big
Except, perhaps, the dream of impressing friends with your bitchin’ new tat.
11. Literally, Never
Always give up.
12. I Concur
We get that often words in English sound the same but have vastly different meanings, but that is all the more reason to do at least 3 minutes of research before every tattoo. Love literally agrees with everything.
13. Relationship Status:
Career prospects are looking good. Add me on LinkedIn.
14. Ledgends Live On
This is a rare example of a tattoo perfectly complimenting an outfit.
15. Baby’s Reaction To Tattoo Fail Says It All
How are you supposed to teach your child not to scribble on the wall when you can’t even stop scribbling on your face?
16. Too Exreme, Bro
Without doubt, the best part of this tattoo fail is that he has literally no idea that it has a glaring typo.
17. If Every One Elese Jumped In a Fire…
… would you jump in one too?
18. Kill Me…
The king of the pig/dog/dinosaur people is begging for mercy. Have a heart and put it out of it’s misery.

At least they adhered to the classic “I before E, except after C” rule.
20. Yes, You Are
You truly, truly are.
