The twitter world went haywire when Ariana Grande proudly tweeted a photo of her hand tattoo, designed to read “7 Rings” in Japanese. It was meant to symbolize her now famous single, but it backfired when experts said it read “Shichirin”, which translates to “charcoal grill.”
The singer was quick to act, as she repaired it by turning a character into a heart and adding another kanji character to it to avoid confusion. In an Instagram stories post, Ariana laid out a plan with the help of her mentor as to how they can fix the tattoo, and tagged tattoo artist, Kane Navasard, with the words “See u tonight.”
Grande’s first tattoo wasn’t wrong, but the replacement was better in the sense that it wouldn’t be confused with anything else, especially with a piece of cooking equipment.
She posted the finished product on her Instagram Stories, and it looked a little different than what she had originally planned. People liked the outcome and commented on how adorable and painful it looked.
Ariana ended the “Barbecue Grill” confusion by thanking everyone, which included her doctor, who gave her lidocaine shots, since hand tattoos are extremely painful.
