Woman Changes Kid's Name After Misspelled Tattoo

And instead of Kevin, she ended up with the name Kelvin inked on her arm. Getting it surgically removed was too expensive, so she just left it there. And after a while, she kind of got into the name Kelvin and decided the easiest thing to do, instead of changing the tattoo, she changed her kid's name. Little Kelvin's only 2 years old, so maybe he didn't notice. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
