Mother Renames Son After Tattoo Misspelling
You can find an infinite number of photos online of misspelled tattoos. This might be the first time where someone handled their misspelling like this.
30-year-old Johanna Sandström from Kyrkhult, Sweden just shared her story about the tattoo she got a few years ago of her kids' names: Nova and Kevin.
But when she got home, she realized there was a big problem: The tattoo artist had accidentally written "Kelvin" instead of "Kevin."
She went to a tattoo removal clinic, but when she found out how long and painful the process was, she decided to go a different direction. Johanna and her husband decided to legally change Kevin's name to Kelvin to match the tattoo.
She rationalized it like this: "I'd never heard the name 'Kelvin' before. So when I thought more about it, I realized no one else had this name. It became unique. Now we think it's better than Kevin."
And Kevin/Kelvin wasn't old enough to know the difference so as far as he knows, he's always been Kelvin.
