Ariana Grande Gets Japanese Character Tattoo With Unusual Misspelling

January 30, 2019 Updated: January 30, 2019

Ariana Grande apparently got Japanese characters tattooed on her hand, but some noted that it’s not spelled correctly.

The singer got her palm tattooed with Japanese characters to honor her new single “7 Rings.”

She posted and then deleted a photo of the tattoo on her official Instagram account after people noticed the mistake.

Fans pointed out that it doesn’t mean “7 Rings,” as she intended, but “BBQ grill.”

“Ariana Grande’s new tattoo … means Japanese style bbq grill, not 7 rings,” one person tweeted. “If you want to know about [the tattoo] just google “SHICHIRIN.”

Grande responded to the comments.

“Indeed, I left out [Japanese characters] which should have gone in between,” she tweeted. “It hurt like [expletive]n still looks tight. I wouldn’t have lasted one more symbol lmao. But this spot also peels a ton and won’t last so if I miss it enough I’ll suffer thru the whole thing next time.”

The singer added she is a “huge fan of tiny bbq grills.”

In a similar tattoo misspelling incident, singer Ed Sheeran was infamously tattooed by actress Saoirse Ronan after she starred in a video for his single, “Galway Girl.”

He allowed the Irish actress to tattoo the title of the song, but the actress tattooed the words “Galway Grill” instead.

“When we were filming it, I meant to get a tattoo of her handwriting saying ‘Galway Girl.’ It actually says ‘Galway Grill.’ Full-on, she really took the [expletive] out of me. It actually says ‘grill,’ g-r-i-l-l,” Sheeran said in April 2017.
