Ariana Grande Fixes Her Japanese 'BBQ Grill' Tattoo, Almost

Ariana Grande attempted to fix her botched “7 Rings” hand tattoo, but she still hasn’t gotten it quite right, according to multiple outlets including BuzzFeed. The “Breathin” singer, 25, initially debuted a new piece of hand art on Twitter on Tuesday, January 29, which she thought spelled out the title of her most recent hit, “7 Rings.” A Japanese-speaking commenter pointed out a massive error in the artwork, however, noting that she was missing several characters from the phrase, resulting in a tattoo that promoted “Japanese-style BBQ grills. On Wednesday, January 30, she posted several text exchanges on Instagram Stories that she had with a “tutor,” who advised her to add an additional kanji above and between the characters she already had in order to say “7 Rings” when read from top to bottom, as is custom in Japanese “tategaki,” or vertical writing.  The Grammy nominee posted a shot of the updated ink to Instagram on Thursday, January 31, writing, “Slightly better. Thanks to my tutor for helping me fix and to @kanenavasard for being a legend. And to my doctor for the lidocaine shots (no joke). RIP tiny charcoal grill. Miss u man. I actually really liked u.” Unfortunately for Grande, the recommended symbol she added to her artwork was placed below her original ink, changing its translation. Ariana’s tattoo reads “Japanese BBQ finger,” one Twitter user wrote. Grande has yet to respond to the second inaccuracy.
