Orlando Bloom's Morse Code Tattoo Is Spelled Wrong — and It's His Son's Name
Orlando Bloom is showing off a sweet new tattoo in honor of his son Flynn — however, there’s just one problem: his name is spelled wrong.
Bloom, 43, announced the ink on Instagram Thursday with a black-and-white photo that shows him holding up his forearm to reveal a series of black numbers atop a text in morse code. He also included a shot of him smiling with tattoo artist, who goes by @balazsbercsenyi.
“New #tattoo can you guess who?” Bloom wrote, prompting fans to guess that the tattoo was a tribute to his 9-year-old son, whom he shares with his ex-wife Miranda Kerr.
“It’s Flynn in MORSE CODE and his dob and time,” Bloom told a fan, Entertainment Tonight reported.
That’s when fans explained that the tattoo had an error.
“If the Morse code is supposed to spell out Flynn then there is a mistake,” one fan wrote.
Another commented, “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.'”
“Many people wonder how the pyramids were actually built… but me, I am in constant awe and wonder of how such a loving/kind/compassionate/supportive/talented/deeply spiritual/did I mention incredibly good looking/James Bond of a human being can actually exist in the flesh!” Perry wrote, sharing a series of photos of the Pirates of the Caribbean actor standing in front of The Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.
“There’s a reason why all animals and children run straight into his arms… It’s his heart, so pure,” the Grammy-nominated artist, 35, added. “I love you Orlando Jonathan Blanchard Copeland Bloom. Happiest 43rd year. .”
