Yesterday, Ariana Grande made headlines with her tragic tattoo blunder which consequently became a viral joke on twitter. The singer’s new palm tattoo was meant to read “7 Rings” to commemorate the success of her single; however, the Kanji symbols “七輪” actually means “sichirin” or a small Japanese BBQ grill.
Twitter users were quick to point out that while the symbols “七” and “輪” mean “seven” and “ring” respectively when standing alone, this unfortunately was not the case when the symbols were put together.
Last night Ariana Grande revealed her new dainty palm tattoo, which was meant to say “7 Rings,” to commemorate the success of her new single. However, native Japanese speakers pointed out in the comments that the tattoo actually meant “BBQ Grill” in Japanese.
Although Ariana quickly took down the original Instagram post, Twitter users weren’t going to let her off that easy.
