Orlando Bloom's new tattoo misspells his son's name

Orlando Bloom's new tattoo misspells his son's name

Recently, Orlando Bloom took to Instagram to post a photo of his new tattoo, a tattoo which is presumably supposed to spell out the name of his son Flynn - but in Morse code. The tattoo also features the date and time of Flynn's birth.

In this interview Orlando Bloom, who shares a son with ex Miranda Kerr, talks about his son turning eight and entering third grade:

"New #tattoo can you guess who?" he wrote in the caption of a shot of him showing off his forearm, which features the new tattoo.

However, it has to come to the attention of Orlando's eagle-eyed fans that his son's name appears to have been misspelled.

"If the Morse code is supposed to spell out Flynn then there is a mistake," someone pointed out in the comments.

"The lettering on Orlando's arm spells F-R-Y-N-N, with a single dot missing, symbolizing "R" rather than "L," added another.

"Babe you spelled it wrong," wrote a third.

"YOU SPELLED FLYNN WRONG ORLY," a different user chimed in.

The 43-year-old actor's tattoo artist also shared a photo of the tattoo and acknowledged the misspelling, assuring fans that it would be fixed.

"A beautiful reminder for @orlandobloom of his son," he wrote. "And yes, a dot is missing, we know, it will be fixed :)"

Orlando and supermodel Miranda Kerr were together for six years before ending things back in 2013.

Last year, in an interview with Howard Stern, the Pirates of the Caribbean star spoke candidly about how he and Miranda co-parent.

“I always was like, ‘Listen, you know, we’re gonna be in each other’s lives for the rest of each other’s lives. We have a child. Let’s [do] whatever it takes.’ … It’s not always easy,” Orlando said about his relationship with Miranda.

“My son has got, like, [Snapchat's] Evan Spiegel as his stepdad," he continued. "Like, the titans of industry. Miranda the supermodel and Katy Perry as his [future stepmom],” Orlando added about his son’s parental figures. “I’m just like, ‘We need to get him in therapy right now.’”
