Your Name is What? Kelly

The classic mistake in the art of Hebrew tattoo: it's written backwards.
Yep. instead of saying "Kelly" as the girl no doubt intended, this colorful cutie says "Yelk".

Tattoo wannagets, do remember, Hebrew is written from right to left.


  1. Just so that you know, Yelek is an old Hebrew word appearing in the bible, and it means... locust (some sort of it).

  2. A late comment, sorry...but just learning Hebrew and found this site--it's amazingly informative; thanks for doing it.

    Anyway, about the above tat--is that a giant Hey above the backwards "kelly"? Did she try to write "THE Kelly"? Isn't putting a definite article before a proper name another grammatical error? And extremely egotistical...
