Ive just been having a good read through the forum, and cant believe how bad the spelling is of some users.

To say we are meant to be learning how to tattoo, surely part of that process is taking your time, and making sure things are spelled correctly. OK, maybe an odd word here and there, but some of these posts are nearly unreadable!

Before you all start going through my posts to find mistakes, like i said odd words dont bother anyone, but FFS. :angry:

I have not really taken much notice of it,when reading post's i always know what they mean,and some people cant help not being great at spelling, but i am sure it wont effect any tattoos they do,i for one would always tell a tattooist how to spell what i want and check it prior to work going ahead.

Its easy to do Ive done it, hit wrong keys, over tired, not having glasses on lol

Not really an issue for posts on forums.

I had noticed, simply because I'm a bit of a grammar/ spelling nazi with myself. I double and triple check my posts before I hit submit, often going as far as using spellcheckers, etc. if I'm unsure of a word. But, that being said, I never hold it against people if they have trouble with spelling. I mean, my husband's dyslexic :icon_razz:

However, lack of punctuation does somewhat urk me, simply because I have to dissect and re-read everything just to make sense of it. I completely understand if someone has difficulty with spelling, but a punctuation makes even the worst spelt sentences easier to understand.

My general rule of thumb is - add a comma or full stop where you would take a pause if you were to say the sentence out loud. It doesn't matter which, as long as there's something to show where one sentence ends and another begins. [SIZE=-3]

hi all
spelling mistakes are terrible ,i see them weekly.
its so simple to buy a spell checker .dictionary.phone a friend
few that i have seen by include
Brian = brain
Chelsea = chalcea
Jordan =joorden
Plymouth =pymouth
Tracie =tracy
Kyle =cyle ,this was a huge lower back piece
the list is endless ,sentences squashed up because ran out of room,names in scrolls
going from big to small , ran out of room . words the wrong way round .
its quite shocking and the person sat there and let them do it after checking in a mirror ,
another one union jacks coloured in the wrong colours ,blue where red is supposed to be .then they have put blue over red and its gone purple ,ha.
latest this week was a polynesian pattern with black shade in a piece that was supposed to be left clear , messed the whole pattern up.
in the past Celtic patterns with extra lines , the person did not even notice they were there.
a three legged dragon that had been on for 20 years and they had not noticed that either . it was a whole chest piece and arm .
deformed legs on panthers ,extra toes . portraits that look like horrorgrams . thats the wife .terrible .

Hey alex, tracy can be spelt with a 'y' . that is how my mother inlaw spells her name . . i guess it comes down to how the person wants to spell it when it comes to names.

Two words...........spell..... checker......:icon_cheesygrin:
I typed spill chick and it came out just fine. :)

Forums are communication and not written documents. As long as your message can be relayed to the reader there is no reason to get worked up over grammatical errors. I was an English major in college and it always bugged me when people felt the need to correct others. If you know what's being said, move on.

Life's too short to get caught up in silly little details.
