I might be crazy, but, I think the only thing misspelled here is the title. While the script on the tattoo is a little difficult to read… it still spells perserverance. See the “r” after the e but before the v? The crowding at the end is still ridiculous though.
This is what happened… People who thought the title was correcting the tattoo chimed in and the people who have seen and used perseverance in normal everyday life (and google for 0.8962 seconds) corrected errbody. Endo story.
