Nowadays, celebrities seem to be more addicted to getting tattoos than they are with shelling out their money for clothes and cars.

Unfortunately, many stars forget one simple rule before getting permanent tats: Think before you ink!

Here, see 7 celebs who should have done a little more research before placing these misspelled and grammatically incorrect tattoos on their skin.

Along with his sexy smile and firm figure, David Beckham‘s tattoo-covered body is what makes ladies swoon over the soccer stud! So when David got “Victoria” tattooed in Sanskrit on his arm, it made him even more perfect! Unfortunately, the ink came out as “Vihctoria” by accident. It’s the thought that counts, right?

Rihanna wanted “rebellious flower” in French when she decided to get “rebelle fleur” inked on her neck. Thanks to French grammar rules, the adjective is placed before the noun, leaving the singer with “flower rebel” instead. At least it’s spelled correctly….

Oops!… she did it again. Britney Spears‘ misspelled tattoo on her hip was supposed to mean “rebellious,” but instead came out as “strange.”

Talk about living without regrets! Hayden Panettiere has “Vivere senza rimpianti,” which means “Live without regrets” in Italian, tattooed on her left ribcage. Regret is missing an “I” and should read “rimipianti.” The “Nashville” actress joked about her misspelled tat in the May 2013 issue of Glamour. “It’s not that you don’t regret things in life, but you at least try to learn from them. It’s misspelled too — so I literally have to live by that advice!” The actress is in the process of getting the ink removed.

Christina Aguilera‘s misspelled tattoo is a blessing in disguise! The singer honored then-husband, Jordan Bratman, by getting his initials in Hebrew. Instead, she ended up with “12.”

In a passage taken from James 1:2-4, Kevin Durant has “mature” spelled “mautre” (bottom right). An Instagram user notified the NBA player of the misspelling, which was corrected hours later.

Ashley Greene

Someone missed the apostrophe lesson in school! Ashley Greene‘s tattoo is missing an apostrophe and should read “life’s a dance.” Luckily for the “Twilight” actress, it’s an easy fix.
