Mom Changes Son’s Name to Match Tattoo


A mum from Sweden has taken drastic steps when a tattoo of her son Kevin’s name was spelled wrongly.

To make sure her new ink was accurate, the mum (who wants to be known only as Johanna) decided to officially change five-year-old Kevin’s name to Kelvin.

The mistake was made when she went to get the names Kevin and Nova (her daughter) tattooed on her arm.

Johanna only noticed the typo in the tattoo when she was on her way home in the car with her cousin.

“The spelling did not look wrong to me at first,” she told Newsbeat.

“For me, the text is upside-down so it’s in the right direction when I’m standing.

“When we’re sitting in the car home, my cousin takes a picture of it. That’s when I see what it says.

“It says Kelvin instead of Kevin. I didn’t think it was true.
