The very basis of a tattoo is that it’s permanent. Like, it's gonna be on your body forever.
So, you'd really hope that your tattoo artist does a good job.
Spotting a typo in their tattoo would send most of us into a complete and utter meltdown, but one woman has found the funny side to an obvious mistake in a recent inking.
In a TikTok video that has since gone viral, the woman documented her ‘new tattoo'.
Presumably, she went to the tattoo parlour with the intention of getting 'EVERYTHING'S FINE' inked on the side of her hand.
However, thanks to a rather unfortunate mistake, she ended up with ‘EVERTHING’S FINE’ instead.
In the clip, the unlucky tat-receiver is in absolute hysterics while the tattoo artist looks like he wants the ground to swallow him up.
A voice behind the camera tells the artist: “This is not your fault.
“This is the greatest moment of my life.”
The artist seems to be in disbelief as he looks at the botched tat mumbling: “Are you f**king joking?”
The uncontrollable laughter continues as they repeat: “Everthin’s fine,” and even appear to be wiping away tears.
Leaning back in his chair with his face covered in disbelief, they reassure the artist: “It’s okay, everthin’s fine.”
Users found the situation equally hysterical as they took to the video's comments.
One person joked: “In Martin Freeman voice ‘it was this moment he realised, everything was not fine.’"
Another quipped: “Poor guy is sooo confused. That phrase will haunt him.”
“Honestly it's better this way. It plays perfectly into that saying,” a third wrote, while another added: "The spelling error made the tattoo PERFECT."
People also recommended fixes to the spelling mistake, suggesting a ‘lil apostrophe where the Y would’ve been’ or: “Wait but like a little ^ and a Y slanted above would actually be so cute.”
In response to the viral clip, the tattoo artist has revealed that his client actually 'liked it better' with the mistake.
He said: "This s**t is going to happen to every tattoo artist at some point in their career. I was unlucky enough that it went viral and got eight million views in 36 hours but I was also lucky enough that my client liked it better.
“It worked out in the sense that the tattoo was supposed to be a reference to the fact s**t’s always f**ked up. Funny enough, the tattoo got f**ked up, but ended up being better that way.”
