Uh, whoops? Ariana Grande took to Instagram to show off her newest tattoo but received some surprising news. The songstress wanted to get “7 Rings” tatted on her palm in Japanese Kanji characters in honor of her new song, but it turns out she got “BBQ Grill” instead. Welp, accidents happen … in permanent ink.
“This felt super good [Kane Navasard] JK (everyone thinks this is a fake hand but it’s indeed … my hand,” the 25-year-old captioned a now-deleted photo of the tattoo on Instagram. It showcased the lettering right below her pointer and middle finger, and looks like an extra tender spot to have a needle poking at. Japenese-speaking fans were quick to note that the design actually spelled “shichirin,” which is a type of grill for barbequing meats and veggies.

The songstress did apparently respond to the backlash and acknowledged that she purposefully left part of the lettering out because it was too painful to finish. “It hurt like f—k [and] still looks tight. I wouldn’t have lasted one more symbol,” the “thank u, next” singer explained in a now-deleted tweet. “This spot also peels a ton and won’t last so if I miss it enough, I’ll suffer [through] the whole thing next time.” She added, “B—h you try. I dare u. One letter.”

She claimed that the tattoo is going to fade but she just wanted to have the experience under her belt. “It’s 99% gonna go away he said. But I wanted to feel it lol. He was like that’s the most painful spot for sure … I’m curious,” she admitted.
The Grammy nominee seemingly had a good sense of humor about the whole thing. “That’s how u end up [with a] tiny grill/circle/tambourine on your hand. It’s my favorite one now tho so pls leave me and my tambourine grill alone. Thank u,” the brunette beauty ended her tweet-storm.
If Ari’s happy with it, then that’s all that matters. However, that doesn’t mean haters will stop “grilling” her.
