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.

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?

Lory Ayala/BuzzFoto/FilmMagicOops!... she did it again. Britney Spears' first misspelled tattoo on her hip was supposed to mean "rebellious," but instead came out as "strange." She then got a Kabbalah-inspired tattoo on the back of her neck that should have meant "God," but once again came out wrong.
Jeffrey Mayer/WireImageTalk 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.
Rick Diamond/WireImageChristina 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.

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.
