Absolutely the best solution


Then again, she named her daughter Nova.

And since when is Kevin a Swedish name?

My mother had a Kelvin-nator refrigerator. I think.

JM -- In Norwegian, the true mother tongue, it is often Kevan.

Not every Swede can be named Kim-Jong Sexy Glorious Beast Divine Dick Father Lovely Iron Man Even Unique Poh Un Winn Charlie Ghora Khaos Mehan Hansa Kimmy Humbero Uno Master Over Dance Shake Bouti Bepop Rocksteady Shredder Kung Ulf Road House Gilgamesh Flap Guy Theo A*** H*** Im Yoda Funky Boy Slam Duck Chuck Jorma Jukka Pekka Ryan Super Air Ooy Rusell Salvador Alfons Molgan Akta Papa Long Nameh Ek (https://www.ndtv.com/offbeat/swedish-mans-63-word-name-may-be-worlds-longest-584757)

I find myself skeptical. Every tattoo artist I've dealt with first produces a sketch, then you examine the sketch. You make changes, suggestions, ask questions. When you approve the sketch they transfer it to your body, then you once again get to look it over, look in the mirror, etc. Then and only then do they start with the permanent ink. You don't just walk in, stick out a limb and close your eyes.

A less drastic solution would be to just cut off her arm.
Problem solved!

Totally understandable. My name used to be doctorcindy.

Stylus device utilizes autocorrect.

I defer to Vaporsmith's encyclopedic knowledge of the tattoo arts.

I guess the lasers that remove tattoo ink have not made it to Sweden?

Just wait 'til she has to change the third child's name to Fredja.

The mother was going to get her own middle name inked on herself next, but was unsure of the spelling of "Dpofus".

There is a good chance that the kid grows up to be an absolute zero.

He shoulda just named him Fairenheit, or Fair for short.
