It’s World Tattoo Day today – that’s the 21st of March, in case you aren’t reading this on the day it comes out – and to celebrate, the language learning app Duolingo has launched a new campaign, with an advert directed by Pierre Edouard Joubert. Since so many people decide to get tattoos in different languages that end up meaning something completely different to what they wanted, Duolingo’s decided to help.
The ad shows tourists ending up at a tattoo parlour after a big night – one asks for a tattoo saying ‘I’m free’ but gets one saying ‘I’m for free, and another thinks he’s getting a tattoo that says ‘courage’ when it actually means ‘toilet demon’ (which is slightly different). Duolingo isn’t just making fun of all those people who have poorly translated tattoos, though – they’re here to help. For two weeks from the 21st of March, you can get your tattoos checked for mistakes by Duolingo’s team of experts. Send a photo of it to them on Instagram or Twitter, along with that you think it says, and they’ll let you know if it’s right or not. You can also email them at TatooDuoOver@duolingo.com if you want to be more discreet.
The company’s also urging people to share photos of their worst foreign language tattoos online with the hashtag #TattooDuoOver. Duolingo will reward the very best of the worst with a trip to Paris and a chance to get a do-over, and get some brand-new ink at the famous tattoo parlour Abraxas, or a free subscription to Duolingo Plus. Anyone who enters will also get a code for a free one-month Duolingo trial – so hopefully they won’t make any more linguistic mistakes.
