Both my friend and her DH had matching tattoos today, but both have 'could of' instead of 'could have'... WWYD... Gently inform her to save a shred of her dignity or save my embarrassment to point it out and say nothing? I know its not issue of the century but Im interested to hear what others would do.

Well clearly it’s not fixable so you say nothing and politely smile and nod

ItchySeveredFoot Thu 24-May-18 20:03:43

I wouldn't say anything. Not much they can do now. How can people not realise though!?

Say nothing

afreshnewname Thu 24-May-18 20:03:51

What does the tattoo actually say?

FrustratedBeyond Thu 24-May-18 20:04:14

That's what I would do personally but she is the kind of person who may be upset I didnt tell her lol

BlueLightPanda Thu 24-May-18 20:04:27

Maybe it’s the way she speaks? a lot of people say could of instead of could have although it isn’t right.

I would just leave it OP.

Say nothing! The messenger ALWAYS gets shot!

TowerRavenSeven Thu 24-May-18 20:05:16

"Could of" or "Could have" what? What context is it in? I'd also just let it be whatever the context. It's not like they can do anything about it now.

Don't say anything, it's not your place to.

FrustratedBeyond Thu 24-May-18 20:06:45

I didn't like her fb photo just to pretend I didn't see it! I personally would stick my head in the sand and plead ignorance... It intrigued me what others may think

GreatDuckCookery Thu 24-May-18 20:07:00

What is the rest of the tattoo? confused

ScreamingValenta Thu 24-May-18 20:07:04

There's nothing she can do about it now, so I wouldn't upset her by saying anything.

FrustratedBeyond Thu 24-May-18 20:08:05

The tattoos say 'If our love could of saved you'

AnneProtheroe Thu 24-May-18 20:08:34

Does it say "could of gone to a tattoo artist who can spell" grin

FrustratedBeyond Thu 24-May-18 20:09:24

i assum she meant 'could've'

User467 Thu 24-May-18 20:09:31

That doesn't sound like the sort of tattoo that you point out an error on

Optimouse Thu 24-May-18 20:09:39

It sound like it's a tattoo for a death... Say nothing and be kind

FrustratedBeyond Thu 24-May-18 20:09:52

now Im at it... 'Assume' grin

sycamore54321 Thu 24-May-18 20:09:53

If there is a way it could be fixed, then very diplomatically say something- but I imagine that would only work if "could of" is at the end of a line and the rest of the text continues underneath. And it isn't framed by a box or something

Otherwise I think you need to stay silent.

Or hope that she reads this thread!

AdaColeman Thu 24-May-18 20:10:09

Maybe she thinks "could of" is correct, she would not be alone!

AnneProtheroe Thu 24-May-18 20:10:17

Oops so sorry blush

FrustratedBeyond Thu 24-May-18 20:10:20

Im glad you all agree!!

RevCurry Thu 24-May-18 20:10:21

You can't say anything but it would irritate me every time I saw it!

ScreamingValenta Thu 24-May-18 20:10:29

Would I be right in deducing (from the context you've given) that the tattoos are a memorial to a loved one? In which case, there is even more reason not to say anything about the error.
