A mom has renamed her son after her tattoo of his name gets misspelled.
When getting a tattoo, it's always a good idea to check the spelling of the stencil - otherwise, you may end up like Johanna Giselhäll Sandströmof Sweden. She went into her local tattoo shop in hopes of getting her kids’ names inked on her arm, but came out with something different.
Johanna says she told the tattoo artist she wanted her kids Nova and Kevin tattooed on her. “I gave the artist their names. The artist drew the design and didn’t ask anything about the spelling so I didn’t give it any more thought,” she explains. Well she probably should’ve because the artist ended up tatting Kelvin instead of Kevin. Johanna says she was heartbroken and when she returned to her artist, he laughed, handed her a refund...and a phone number to a tattoo removal clinic.
After realizing how difficult removal would be, Johanna and her husband decided instead of changing the tattoo, why not just change their son’s name? So they did. And considering Kevin/Kelvin was still a toddler, he wasn't affected by the shift.
- And get this - Johanna recently gave birth to daughter Freja and plans on adding her name to the arm, but this time will be different. She jokes, “I’m going to write it down on a piece of paper and check it over ten thousand times.”

A restaurant in New York City now serves 24K gold chicken wings.
A New York City restaurant is taking lessons from Bruno Mars by serving up 24K gold chicken wings. The delicacy actually comes from the mind of the Foodgod aka Jonathan Chebon aka Kim Kardashian’s bestie. He’s teamed up with The Ainsworth Chelsea to bring the flashiest chicken wings on the market.
Brian Mazza, president of Paige Hospitality (which owns the Ainsworth), says they were just trying to be different in creating the wings. "We wanted to create something over-the-top that's never been done before," he explains. "And you've never seen or tasted anything like it before." So what do they taste like? It’s all in the preparation.
The chicken wings aren’t as out there as they seem and are actually prepared like normal wings. First chefs brine the wings for about 12 hours - a half-hour per karat. Then they coat it with a house-made dry rub, bake and fry, and then sprinkle on a layer of gold dust. So how much do these golden wings cost? Wings come in orders of 10 for $45 or 20 for $90. If you’re feeling really boujee you can also order 50 plus a bottle of Jay-Z’s Ace of Spades Champagne for $1,000.
A 20-year-old man lived unnoticed in an elderly woman’s house for half a year.
A 20-year-old man from the Japanese city of Himeji has been hailed as a modern-day ninja, after managing to live unnoticed in an elderly woman’s house for half a year.
The young squatter’s incredible run came to an end earlier this week, when his 90-year-old host’s son came to visit and cook her dinner. During his time there, the man heard some strange noises coming from the second floor of the house, and walked up the stairs to investigate. When he opened the door to one of the upstairs bedrooms, he was shocked to find a young man sleeping on a futon. Instead of losing his composure and confronting the intruder, he kept his composure, simply closing the door very slowly and going back downstairs to ask his mother if she new anything about someone else living in her house. The 90-year-old woman had no idea what her son was talking about, so the man called 110 (emergency number) to report the trespassing.
The elderly woman and his son then casually waited for police to arrive and wake up the uninvited guest. The silent squatter was handcuffed and taken to the police station, but so far he has proven very uncooperative. He has yet to even reveal his name, let alone the reasons for his trespassing or how long he had been sleeping there.
Although police have yet to get any relevant information from the squatter, their ongoing investigation has revealed that he had first entered the 90-year-old woman’s home on December 12, at around 7:20 in the morning, and that he had been living there ever since.
