Ariana Grande's attempt to fix her misspelled tattoo backfires

Ariana Grande's attempt to fix her misspelled tattoo backfires

Ariana Grande's trap-infused, Thank U, Next single "7 Rings" came with a visual centered around an iconic pink house.

After sharing the palm tattoo on social media fans went into overdrive as they informed Grande, and the world, that her tattoo actually read Shichirin - or "barbeque grill". "And to my doctor for the (numbing medication) lidocaine shots (no joke)", the star wrote alongside a black and white snap of her design on her Instagram Stories.

Sadly, Ari's ink problems still may not be over... as it turns out, her updated work might have an even sillier meaning now than before.

Ariana Grande has made her tattoo fail worse, with the botched ink now reading: "Japanese BBQ finger".

The internet, of course, took immediate notice of the double mishap, with many roasting her for getting a tattoo in a language she doesn't read or speak and others criticizing her for using a culture not her own purely for aesthetic purposes. "I actually really liked u".

But social media users pointed out that Grande's new tat was still misspelled. Thus Grande's "輪♡七指" tattoo technically now translates to "Japanese BBQ finger ♡".


Jen Frederick tweeted: "If she's learning Japanese, she should fire her tutor".

The singer got a palm tattoo with Japanese character symbols meant to honor the single "7 Rings".

"The second set of kanji characters are 指 which mean fingers and 指輪 means ring".

The Boca Raton singer posted a video on Instagram Thursday with the fixed tattoo and thanked tattoo artist Kane Navasard.

While the tattoo is likely to fade away after some time due to its location, it appears Ariana will be stuck with her beloved "tiny charcoal grill" for a bit longer. Online reported. "It hurt like f*** n still looks tight".
