Ariana Grande had Twitter all concerned about her new tattoo.
The popstar revealed the new ink on her left hand, which appears to be in Japanese characters and it is meant to say “7 rings,” in reference to her latest song. However, her tattoo missed out on a few characters and her ink translates to “shichirin,” which means “small charcoal grill.”
Fans pointed out that the correct writing for “7 rings” should have been “七つの指輪”. She explained in her now-deleted tweets that some of the characters have been removed because she couldn’t handle the pain of the tattoo.
After learning that her tattoo carries a different meaning altogether, she wasted no time and consulted her Japanese tutor, Ayumi. She posted their conversation on Instagram Stories and Ayumi suggested that she should add “指” (“finger”) so it would read “七 指輪” (“seven finger circle”).
Grande added a new letter underneath her existing tattoo, along with a heart. She captioned her Instagram story video, “Thanks to my tutor for helping my fix and to @kanenavasard for being a legend. And to my doctor for the lidocaine shots (no joke). RIP tiny charcoal grill.”
However, the new tattoo did not solve the issue. According to BuzzFeed, while Japanese is read from top to bottom, it can also be read from left to right. Grande’s latest tattoo comes out to “輪♡七指”, which does not make any sense in the Japanese language. However if you read it from left to right, the phrase “七輪指♡” translates to “Japanese barbecue finger.”
Let’s see if Grande is going to fix this issue once again.
