Ariana Grande’s "Small Charcoal Grill" Tattoo Now Means "Japanese BBQ Finger"

Ariana Grande Accidentally Tattooed “BBQ Grill” On Her Hand In Japanese

Ariana Grande Accidentally Tattooed “BBQ Grill” On Her Hand In Japanese

On Wednesday, the 25-year-old singer posted a photo of her newest tattoo, which was meant to spell out the name of her hit single "7 Rings", but as Twitter users pointed out, "七輪" actually translates in Japanese to a small charcoal grill.

The American singer's attempt to ink an ode to her hit single "7 Rings" backfired Wednesday, after social media quickly chimed in to tell her the characters actually translated to shichirin - a small charcoal grill.

Less than 24 hours later, Grande went back under the tattoo pen to seemingly correct the error by adding the kanji character for finger after consulting with her Japanese tutor amid the backlash.

"Slightly better. Thanks to my tutor for helping me fix", she wrote.

While Grande did include the Japanese character for "finger", she did not take into account her tutor's note about the placement, as her addition was inserted underneath the original text.

She added on the Instagram post: "RIP tiny charcoal grill. Miss u man. i actually really like u", the "Sweetener" star quipped in an Instagram Story with a shot of some new symbols scrawled on her palm. It hurt like f**k n still looks tight. "I wouldn't have lasted one more symbol lmao", she tweeted. "But this spot also peels a ton and won't last so if I miss it enough I'll suffer thru the whole thing next time", the 25-year-old wrote.

"Also. huge fan of tiny bbq grills".

But get this, sources close to TMZ are saying that Ariana Grande's tattoo edit still doesn't read or convey "7 Rings" as intended.

Not so. Once again, Japanese fans and folks with even a passing interest in the language have pointed out a problem: because of how the new kanji is separated from the others, the tattoo is gibberish if read from right-to-left, top-to-bottom.
