20 Funny Misspelled Tattoos: Can You Spell Regret?

We've seen our share of completely horrible (and inexplicable) tattoos, but there's nothing quite as cringeworthy as a tattoo that has thumbed its nose at the English language, like the ones in this gallery. The people who commissioned or created these works of ink "art" are the folks who never quite mastered homophones, spelling, punctuation, or even simple elementary school-level grammar. Yet they decided to head on into the tattoo parlor and have their ridiculous messages etched into their flesh for the rest of their lives. 

To each his own, I guess! Just remember folks... think before you ink (and maybe Google it first, just to be sure.)

A Classic Case of Phonetics vs. Spelling

Via The Telegraph.

Remember when Matt Damon starred in that awesome movie, The Marshian? No? That's because it's spelled M-a-r-t-i-a-n.

Also, way to ruin a beloved childhood icon for me. "Marvin the Marshian" just doesn't have the same ring to it.

Your Mom Would Have Loved It Anyway!

Via Complex.

My mom is my angle! Too bad she's often pretty obtuse, to be honest, even though she thinks she's always right. It's okay though; it's actually kind of acute.

(Okay, I'm done now. No more math jokes, I promise.)

Jon Bovi Must Be a Different Guy

Via Imgur.

"It's is." Oy.

If you're going to get a Jon Bon Jovi quote on your arm, first... don't. Just don't, okay? You will thank me for giving you that advice someday.

But if you insist on getting a Bon Jovi quote, at least get it right.

We Concur

"Do you agree?"

"No, I conquer."

Concur = agrees with. Conquer = beats. Therefore, according to this tattoo, love agrees with all.

Only God can WHAT you? I'm sorry, but that looks like an F, not a J. This is yet another case when font choice turns out to be really, really important.
