I know it’s a little hard to tell, so let me explain. What you are looking at here is a photo of actress Hayden Panettiere’s tattoo, which apparently has a misspelling in it. According to the Huffington Post:

Often visible above her dresses for the first word, the tattoo in full reads “Vivere senza rimipianti,” which is meant to be “to live without regrets” in Italian.

Unfortunately for Hayden, her tattoo reads “rimipianti” instead of “rimpianti,” adding an extra “i.”

Hat tip for this little tidbit to Captain Moondog of Today in Awesome. As he wrote,  “Live without regrets, um, like not regretting that your permanent tattoo is spelled wrong.”

  2. Slightly off topic, but I have always enjoyed this blog:


    Most of their posts are about Asian character tattoos that do not mean what their proud wearers think.

  3. Vivere Senza Rimpianti is the correct spelling. It means “Living Without Regret”.
