Orlando Bloom paid a heartfelt tribute to his son by getting a Morse code tattoo of his name – but it turns out it was misspelled.

The Hollywood star recently showed off a new inking on his arm, which was supposed to be of his nine-year-old son Flynn’s name in Morse code as well as the time and date of his birth.

However, some eagle-eyed fans spotted that something was off with the sequence of dots and dashes.

Many posted messages on social media about the blunder, saying that what Bloom actually had etched onto his arm was the word “Frynn”.

“OMG who did this??? It’s WRONG SPELLED,” said one person, while another posted: “Think a trip back to the tattoo artist is required.”

“Hate to be the one to tell you, but you’re missing a dot. It spells ‘FRYNN’ right now,” said one fan, while another joked: “Who is Frynn??”

Bloom’s tattoo artist Balazs Bercsenyi has now assured fans that the gaffe will be rectified.

He wrote on Instagram: “A beautiful reminder for @orlandobloom of his son and yes, a dot is missing, we know, it will be fixed :).”

Flynn is Bloom’s son from his former marriage with Australian model Miranda Kerr.

The pair tied the knot in 2010 and welcomed Flynn in January 2011.

They split up in 2013 and the Pirates Of The Caribbean actor has now found love again with pop star Katy Perry,

The singer confirmed last year that she and Bloom are engaged.
