But since the tattoo was missing a character, it translated to "Frynn," instead of "Flynn."
The "Lord of the Rings" star corrected the tattoo on Friday and has now joined a long list of A-listers, including Chrissy Teigen and Kanye West, who have used body art as a way to honor their children.
To pay tribute to his 9-year-old-son, Flynn, actor Orlando Bloom recently got a tattoo of his child's name, birthdate and birth time in Morse code — or so he thought. Because the image was missing a dot, the body art actually spelled out "Frynn," instead of "Flynn."
The "Lord of the Rings" star corrected the error on Friday, saying: "Finally dot it right!" Bloom has now joined a legion of celebrities — including Julia Roberts, David Beckham, and Kanye West — who have used body art inspired by their children.
