Milwaukee Bucks Big Man Larry Sanders Gets Tattoo with Awful Spelling Mistake

Jake SilverSocial Media StaffAugust 25, 2013

If you're going to get a tattoo, you should probably double-check the spelling.

Milwaukee Bucks C/PF Larry Sanders had two words tattooed on his hand, which he proceeded to post to Instagram. Clearly, he missed the "I before E, except after C" lesson in grade school.


Once made aware of the screwup, Sanders had a brief gibberish moment, followed by acknowledgement of the mistake. The tattoos are supposed to say "Ask" and "Receive." Instead, he got "Recieve." Oops.
