A woman was forced to rename her son after a tattoo fail left her with the wrong name permanently inked on her body.



Johanna Giselhäll Sandstrom, 30, wanted to get a sweet reminder of her children's names Nova and Kevin but after the tattoo artist accidentally wrote 'Kelvin' instead, she was faced with the option of laser surgery or modification to correct the issue.

But Joanna decided the best route to take was to legally change her son's name to Kelvin.

Speaking to Swedish newspaper Blekinge Lans Tidning, she said: ''My heart stopped and I thought I was going to faint. We decided to rename the boy''

Joanna was given a full refund from the tattoo parlour for the unfortunate situation.
