A MUAY Thai fighter has been mocked for his new tattoo after people claimed it was misspelled.
Jimmy Vienot, 26, was quick to show off his new ink to his adoring fans – only to learn it was actually translated as a gross insult.
The reigning middleweight kickboxing champion shared a photo of the design stretching down his forearm.
But his tattoo artist seemed to get a letter wrong when inking the “Muay Thai” script into his skin.
The Frenchman was soon taunted by fans on social media, who were quick to point out that “a small change can make all the difference”.
Instead of paying homage to the martial arts, they claimed that the tattoo actually read “Kuat Thai,” which translates to “Thai Dick.”
In response to the error, one user wrote, “I hope this is a photoshopped shot.”
Another wrote: “Go burn the tattoo shop.”
A third joked “Oh my Buddha”.
While another explained: “It actually has to be the letter of ม, not ฆ.
“It’s the letter ม that gives you the sound of M – Muey มวย Thai ไทย.
“The letter ฆ gives you the sound of C and that meaning could go wrong in a fitting way. just so you know
After the snap was posted on Monday, the image has garnered more than 2,500 likes on Vienot’s Instagram page.
The middleweight kickboxer, who has more than 22,000 followers, is only the fourth non-Thai fighter to win the title at Lumpinee Stadium after racing to victory in 2019.
He also won the Arena Fight title and the IFMA World Championship that same year before winning the WMC Middleweight Championship in 2021.
His tattoo gaff comes as a woman expressed her devastation after her friend inked her eyebrows on Wonky and made her look like a “witch”.
Debbie Marks, 52, from London, was friends with the woman for about a year before she decided to visit the hair salon where she worked as a tattoo artist.
Meanwhile, a tattoo model revealed she became temporarily blind and cried blue tears after getting a tattoo on her eyeballs.
Also, a holidaymaker got a cheap s*** tattoo while on vacation – but trolls are now saying it’s a terrible mistake, especially for what it says.
