The Lord of the Rings actor, who shares the nine-year-old with his ex-wife Miranda Kerr, took to Instagram on Tuesday to unveil his latest piece of body art from tattooist Balazs Bercsenyi.
Fans were initially at a loss as to the meaning of the inking, which featured a series of dots, dashes, and a series of seemingly random numbers on his forearm.
However, Orlando quickly revealed the inspiration for the tattoo, responding to one user, ‘It’s Flynn in MORSE CODE and his dob (date of birth) and time (in numbers).”
Balazs also uploaded some snaps of the artwork, adding in the caption: “A beautiful reminder for @orlandobloom of his son Flynn.”
Orlando is no stranger to tattoos. He also has a depiction of the Elvish word for ‘nine’ in the Lord of the Rings books on his right wrist, a reference to his role as Legolas, one of the nine members of the Fellowship of the Ring, in the movies, as well as a tattoo of a sun symbol on his abdomen.
After parting ways with Australian supermodel Miranda in 2013, the 43-year-old began dating popstar Katy Perry in early 2016.
The pair got engaged last year, and even though they were rumoured to be marrying in December, a source told Us Weekly magazine that they decided to push back their nuptials so they could secure the right wedding venue.
