Hayden Panettiere warns fans about tattoos after body art misspelling

June 11th, 2013 3:10am EDT

Hayden Panettiere Actress Hayden Panettiere has urged fans to learn from her negative tattoo experience and think carefully before getting inked in another language.

The Heroes star showed off her body art on U.K. chat show The Graham Norton Show and revealed that the Italian phrase inked on her back means 'Live without regrets' - or it would if it wasn't misspelled.

The blonde actress admits that she wasn't aware of the error until she visited Italy and the mistake was pointed out to her by locals - but she has managed to see the funny side.

She says, "You know what? There may be an extra letter. It's in a different language though... Just advice: don't ever get a tattoo in a different language and then go to the country where they speak that language... It's a bad idea.

"It means live without regrets (it's so ironic) and I literally have to live my life by my tattoo."
