COUNCIL CHRONICLE – A Swedish mother became somewhat of a social media star after telling the story of how her son was named. Johanna Sandstrom declared that the name she chose for her child is uncommon.
Swedish Mother Named Boy after Misspelled Tattoo
Meet Johanna Sandstrom, a Swedish mother of two who recently shared her inking experience.
The woman, who also shared her story with a Swedish publication, said that she and her husband were amused by the whole thing.
Sandstrom’s story begins with a trip to the local tattoo parlor. The woman, who only recently gave birth to a boy, wanted to honor her family by having her children’s names inked on her arm. She even came up with the design and was careful enough to write their names on a piece of paper.
The names the tattoo artist was supposed to ink on the woman’s arm were Nora and Kevin.
After returning from the parlor, the Swedish mother got the shock of her life when she discovered that the man misspelled her son’s name.
As Sandstrom declared, the man wrote “Kelvin” instead of “Kevin.” The woman returned to the tattoo parlor to have the artist correct the mistake.
Of course, the man laughed it out and offered Sandstrom a refund. He also offered to redo the tattoo.
When Sandstrom got home, she discussed the offer with her husband. The Swedish mother declared that the perspective of having to undergo several painful tattoo-removal sessions was not at all enticing.
And so, she did the next best thing – changing her son’s name from Kevin to Kelvin. Sandstrom said that her son’s name does have a nice ring to it, for it is most uncommon.
The Swedish mother’s ink adventure raked a lot of likes and was shared all over social media.
