GLOBAL ONE NEWS (G1)— Ariana Grande has been making headlines over her newest tattoo.
The singer got her song title “7 Rings” tattooed in Japanese on the palm of her hand.
A cute way to remember your hit song, right? Well, maybe if you spell it correctly.
Take a look at the photo of the original tattoo Ari shared on social media. One symbol means “seven” and the other means “rings.” However, putting them together translates to “shichirin” or, “bbq grill.”
The pop icon has received plenty of backlash as many found the mistake offensive to the Japanese culture.
However, Ariana said she worked with her Japanese tutor and made a correction.
But sadly the addition now technically translates to “Japanese BBQ finger.”
Ari poked fun at herself on Instagram by captioning her photo, “slightly better. thanks to my tutor for helping me fix … rip tiny charcoal grill. miss u man. i actually really liked u.”
