Orlando Bloom unveiled some arm ink earlier this week on Instagram, showing fans a slim line under a series of numbers accompanied by the dots and dashes often seen in Morse code messages.
Orlando Blooms New Tattoo For His Son Is Wrong, Morse Code Experts Say
“New tattoo,” he wrote in the caption for the image. “Can you guess who?” View this post on InstagramA post shared by Orlando Bloom (@orlandobloom) on Feb 11, 2020 at 12:17pm PSTFans quickly guessed that the lines and dots represented the Morse code spelling of Flynn, the name of Orlando’s son with his ex-wife, Miranda Kerr.
The numbers above also appear to be the date and time that Flynn was born.
However, some eagle-eyed fans pointed out that the code actually seems to spell out “Frynn” instead of “Flynn.”HuffPost consulted a few Morse code experts about what’s actually going on here.
Roy Henrichs, who volunteers with Maritime Radio Historical Society’s Operations and Maintenance team, said Orlando “is pulling everybody’s leg” and that his tattoo “doesn’t appear to say anything”
The tattoo is “just a bunch of dots and dashes in line with a pair of extremely long extended dashes,” Roy said over email. “Probably is just a styli[s]ed artistic design!”
Roy added that the tattoo isn’t “International Morse nor American Morse.”
“There are differences in the character sets for these. Also, there are supposed to be spaces between letters – but there aren’t any evident in the photo,” he explained.
He was also kind enough to provide this breakdown for readers to see if they can find either “FLYNN” or “FRYNN” on the arm:Char.   Int’l.     Amer.  F           ..-.        .-.L           .-..        __ (a long “dash”)R           .-.         .  .. (one “dot” space one “dot”)Y           -.―        .. .. (Two “dots” space two “dots”)N           -.          -. Paul Reuvers, an engineer behind the Netherland’s Crypto Museum, echoed Henrichs’ thoughts, telling HuffPost, “It’s definitely not Flynn, as in that case one extra dot would be needed.”
“To be honest, this morse code is difficult to read as so appropriate space have been inserted between the characters. My guess is that it’s just random,” he added.
We even tried plugging “Frynn” and “Flynn” into a Morse code translator, and the results don’t help Orlando’s case.
Based on the translator from Morse Code World, the tattoo indeed resembles “Frynn” more closely than “Flynn”.At any rate, the gesture seems sweet enough, and we’re pretty sure most people glancing at his arm in the flesh aren’t proficient enough in Morse code to judge him too harshly.
Go forth and enjoy your new ink, Orlando. Just maybe double-check the spelling next time.READ MORE: James Corden Reveals What He And Orlando Bloom Told Ivanka Trump After A Few Drinks Katy Perry And Orlando Bloom Tease Engagement After 3 Years Together Hold Up, Ariana Grande's 'Corrected' Japanese Tattoo Isn't Actually Correct After All
