Getting a Tattoo? Spel Chek Tht Siht!
I\'ve seen some great art on people\'s bodies.  It\'s especially awesome on a hot, young, sexy chick.
Yes it is.

But then you try to add words to the mix.  And unfortunately that steady diet of video games, "Jersey Shore," skipping class to go smoke, and trying to come up with more ways to piss off your parents hasn\'t helped your spelling skills.
No.  You\'re not.

And don\'t rely on the guy at the tattoo parlor to be your spell checker.  He may be able to recreate Van Gogh\'s "Starry Night" on your back, but he was too busy finding new body parts to pierce to ever get his GED.  Meaning he probably can\'t spell "GED."
The real "tradgedy"? It\'ll still be misspelled when she\'s 80.

So please...  if you\'re going to add text to your tat, type everything into Microsoft Word and hit the spell check button first.  And learn the goddamn difference between "to," "too," and "two"... and "your" and "you\'re."   
 Idiot.

That way you don\'t have to explain that you actually went to Clemson University when your grandchildren ask where the hell Clemons is.
I\'m assuming he\'s not an English major.

Check out this gallery of some geniuses who tried to look like bad asses, and ended up looking like dumb asses.  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/01/28/misspelled-tattoos-perman_n_439993.html

And if you can\'t spot every single one of the errors in these tattoos, please don\'t bother getting one of your own.  And please don\'t reproduce.  You\'re bringing evolution to a screeching halt.
