You'd think that when people decide to get something permanently etched on their skin, they'd make sure that it turns out error-free, but unfortunately even those with the best intentions aren't immune to embarrassing tattoo mistakes.
Many of our favorite tatted-up stars have ended up with some glaring grammar or spelling mistakes or the names of their former flames inked on their skin. Surprisingly, a lot of them have learned to live with it.
Here are 9 celebrities with embarrassing tattoo mistakes:
1. Hayden Panettiere
The Nashville star's side tattoo reads "Vivere senza rimipianti," meaning "Live without regrets" in Italian. As nice as it sounds, it is spelled incorrectly with "rimipianti" having one too many i's.
The Diamonds singer unfortunately has not one, but TWO tattoo mistakes. The most visible one is the phrase "rebelle fleur" on the side of her neck. The French words translate to "flower rebel" instead of "rebellious flower," which is reportedly what she wanted written. Rihanna also has the word "forgiveness" misspelled in sanskrit inked on her side.
3. Johnny Depp
Depp's tattoo faux pas should be a lesson to us all. Never get your partner's name inked on your body because unfortunately breakups happen. The Pirates of the Caribbean star had Winnona Ryder's name on his arm while they dated in the 90s. The tattoo initially read "Winona Forever," but following their breakup he changed it to "Wino Forever" instead.
4. Britney Spears
The princess of pop's tiny hip tattoo is supposed to read "mysterious" in Chinese lettering, but it actually translates to "strange" instead.
