The star’s tattoo artist Balazs Bercsenyi showed off the updated tattoo, which also features his dog Sidi’s name, on Instagram. He too joked about the mistake.
“Round 2 with Orlando Bloom + we added the missing dot to the morse code, and did a small one in memory of Sidi, his dog + conclusion: never fully trust what your clients find on Pinterest + Life is officially back to normal.”
Fans were quick to call out the error when Orlando first posted a photo of his fresh ink with the caption, “New #tattoo can you guess who?” One fan wrote, “If the Morse code is supposed to spell out Flynn then there is a mistake.”
Another person added, “I’m sorry but that tattoo most definitely says ‘Frynn.’” And someone else agreed, “It’s a lovely idea and a beautiful tattoo. But if it is indeed morse code, I think it says ‘Frynn,’ not ‘Flynn.’”
