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

Orlando Bloom has unveiled a tattoo tribute to his nine-year-old son Flynn - but eagle-eye fans couldn't help notice a big error.

The 43-year-old actor - who shares Flynn with his ex-wife Miranda Kerr - took to Instagram to show off his new ink, holding up his arm for the camera.

"New #tattoo can you guess who," he captioned the photo.

He later explained to a fan [via Entertainment Tonight] that the tattoo was Flynn in morse code, alongside the date and time of his birth.

However, some people were quick to point out an error with the inking: Flynn's name was misspelled.

“If the Morse code is supposed to spell out Flynn then there is a mistake,” someone said, while another person added: “I’m sorry but that tattoo most definitely says ‘Frynn.'”

“It’s a lovely idea and a beautiful tattoo. But if it is indeed morse code, I think it says ‘Frynn,’ not ‘Flynn.'”

The tattoo artist later took to Instagram to acknowledge the error, assuring fans that it would be corrected.

"A beautiful reminder for @orlandobloom of his son," he captioned the same photo of Bloom. "and yes, a dot is missing, we know, it will be fixed :)"

Bloom and Kerr tied the knot in 2010 and welcomed their son, Flynn, the following year. They broke up in 2013.

The model has since married Evan Spiegel. The couple welcomed their son, Hart, in 2018. Last year, they welcomed their second child together - a baby boy named Myles.

Bloom has gotten engaged with Katy Perry.
