Once in a Lifetime Tattoo Misspelled

Jerri Peterson of Atlanta, Georgia, was thrilled with the chance to carry the Olympic Flame in the torch relay as it passed through Derby, England. She was selected to participate because of her charity work. The 54-year-old Peterson decided to get a tattoo as a souvenir of the relay, and only afterward realized that the word "Olympic" was misspelled as "Oylmpic."
She booked a session with a "really good" tattoo artist in her home state of Georgia, and took a friend along for moral support.

Initially she was delighted with how it looked and it was only when she sent a photo of the tattoo to a friend that the spelling mistake was pointed out.

She said: "I looked at it and I was so disappointed. I called my husband and he giggled a little bit.

"Then I started laughing about it and I've laughed ever since."

Mrs Peterson pointed out the mistake to the tattoo artist responsible but declined his offer to correct it.

Peterson looks at the bright side: her tattoo is certainly unique! Link -via Arbroath

Perhaps the tattoo artist intentionally misspelled it in hopes of avoiding a cease and desist letter from the US Olympic Committee. See: http://gawker.com/5920036/us-olympics-committee-is-mad-at-knitting-olympics-for-denigrating-real-athletes
