Ariana Grande gets grilled online for tattoo mistake
Hand tattoo turns out to be an ode to a small charcoal grill
Either Ariana Grande loves Japanese barbecue or there’s something terribly wrong with her new tattoo.
When the U.S. singer posted a photo of her new hand tattoo on Instagram this week, she wrote that the combination of Japanese characters meant “7 Rings.”
That’s also the name of her current hit single.
Turns out Grande was wrong.
The tattoo actually said shichirin or small charcoal grill.
Grande has deleted all her tattoo posts from social media but you can still see the original photo on some fan pages:
Plus, the response:
Screenshots from Grande’s Instagram account suggest she then tried to fix the tattoo by adding characters.
“Slightly better,” it said on her updated post. “Rip tiny charcoal grill. Miss u man.”
Some critics online said the change didn’t exactly fix the problem.
The tattoo has a different meaning depending on which order you read the characters in.
But if you read the top line, left to right, and then the bottom line, left to right, it says: small charcoal grill finger (heart).
No word yet on whether Grande plans on getting any more tattoos any time soon.
