But instead of the usual 12 numbers on a clock, Smith Rowe’s tattoo has 13 numbers on the face.

The number four on his arm is also written as “IIII”, instead of IV.

Fans online were quick to spot the irregularities, with one trolling the youngster by saying: “Would be a nice tattoo if the clock didn’t go up to 13 and he had the right roman numeral for 4 lmao.”

Another added: “13 hour clock, and wrong numerals for the number 4, it’s really not a well done tattoo.”

Although social media users may owe Smith Rowe an apology, as the apparent typos in fact appear to be intentional.

The ink seemingly draws inspiration from computer game “Nancy Drew Secret of the Old Clock”.

The artwork for the game, released in 2005, featured a broken clock face.

While it’s not clear if the computer game is the inspiration for Smith Rowe’s tattoo, it does appear to clear up any confusion as to why there are two errors on the design.

On the pitch the 21-year-old has enjoyed a stellar season, scoring 10 goals in 31 games in all competitions for the Gunners.

Smith Rowe’s excellent form even saw him earn a first senior England call-up back in November.
