Orlando Bloom fixes misspelled tattoo in honor of son Flynn, 9

ORLANDO Bloom has proudly revealed his fix Morse code tattoo, after fans revealed he had misspelled his son's name in the original body art.

The Lord of the Rings star was left embarrassed by the mistake after he had taken to Instagram to show off his touching tribute to his nine-year-old son Flynn, who he shares with ex-wife Miranda Kerr.

Just moments after he shared the post, eagle-eyed fans pointed out there was a dot missing, and now all has been fixed.

Taking to Instagram again on Wednesday, the actor shared an updated picture of his ink.

He captioned the image with the Morse code: "••-••-••-•---•-• finally dot it right!"

The 43-year-old actor added: "How do you make a mistake like that? #pinterestfail (read the small print) 😂 fortunately I know how to spell Sidi. Forever my boy ❤️"

Last week, Orlando revealed that his intricate forearm inking not only includes his son's name but also features his date of birth date, 1 June 2011, 09.03am.

Proud of his new inking, the Carnival Row star can be seen beaming in the selfie, which he captioned: "new #tattoo can you guess who? (sic)".

Although many were quick to praise the star's body art, several Instagram followers pointed out that there was an error in his heartwarming gesture.

According to eagle-eyed fans, the tattoo features a minuscule misspelling, as the Morse code design is missing a dot for Flynn’s name and instead reads 'Frynn'.

One follower commented: "Babe you spelled it wrong".

"Sir I’m sorry that tattoo most definitely says 'Frynn'," another wrote.

After the error was brought to light, Bloom's tattoo artist Balazs Bercsenyi admitted there was a dot missing from the art.

The tattooist posted his own snap of the ink and penned: "A beautiful reminder for @orlandobloom of his son and yes, a dot is missing, we know, it will be fixed :)" (sic).

Elsewhere, Orlando is engaged to popstar Katy Perry, who he popped the question to last Valentine's Day after two years together.

The British actor was previously married to Australian model Miranda and welcomed son Flynn together.

The couple were married for three years before divorcing on amicable terms in 2013. Miranda has since married Snap Inc. CEO Evan Spiegel in 2017.
