Instead of the correct version, Mr Flynn had "Raul Moat" put on his arm. When it was pointed out to him, he had a small "O" inserted.

However, the Sun newspaper interviewed him and pointed out that he had also got Moat’s birthdate wrong. So Mr Flynn is to take another trip to the tattoo parlour.

Mr Flynn, 26, said he had wanted to mark the death of his friend, with whom he shared a cell in Durham prison while both were serving sentences for assault.

The original tattoo read: "RIP Raul Moat. Born 01.01.1973. Died 10.07.2010. Age 37."

His actual birth date was June 17, 1973.

Moat’s funeral is due to take place today before the body is cremated and the ashes scattered at Rothbury, in Northumberland, where he shot himself dead after a six-hour police stand-off.

He had been on the run for seven days after a shooting spree that severely injured his ex-girlfriend Sam Stobbart, 22, killed her new boyfriend Chris Brown, 29, and blinded Pc David Rathband, 42
