Pirates of the Caribbean star Orlando Bloom has got a lovely new tattoo as a touching way to mark the relationship between the actor and his son Flynn.

Flynn was born in 2011 to Bloom and his then-wife Miranda Kerr, who was married to the star between 2010 and 2013. The tattoo contains Flynn’s birthdate, with his name underneath in morse code.

Although, as Balazs Bercsenyi – the tattoo artist behind the inking – has pointed out on Instagram, there’s actually a mistake in the code.

“a beautiful reminder for @orlandobloom of his son,” the caption states, “and yes, a dot is missing, we know, it will be fixed.”

It could be worse. Jessie J had the lyrics of one of her own songs inked on her body, and it contains a mistake she can’t fix.

Sharing a selfie on Instagram last year, she wrote: “Yes my tattoo says… ‘don’t loose who you are in the blur of the stars’. Yes, they are MY lyrics from my song ‘Who You Are’. Yes that I wrote.

“Yes I spelt the tattoo wrong. Yes I repeat it’s spelt wrong. Yes I got it done in Essex. Yes the tattoo artist didn’t mention it. Yes I was 18. Yes I still don’t know the difference between lose and loose.”

A year ago, on Valentine’s Day 2019, we found out that Orlando Bloom was engaged to popstar Katy Perry, who he had been dating for three years at that point (with one of their first photographs together being that nude paddleboard snap).

Perry made the announcement by sharing a photo of a diamond ring on Instagram, alongside the caption “full bloom”.

We see what she did there.
