Ariana Grande’s new Japanese tattoo translates to "barbecue grill"

YouTube

In a now-deleted Twitter post, the 7 Rings singer debuted her latest tattoo: a tiny little "seven rings" inscription on her hand, tattooed in Japanese kanji. According to BuzzFeed, "七輪" doesn't translate to "7 rings" it translates to shichirin, which is a small charcoal grill used for Japanese BBQ.

But - bummer! - social media users swiftly informed her that her tattoo roughly translates to "small charcoal grill".

Ariana Grande is still not sure if she would want to go through the pain of getting the entire phrase tattooed on her hand.

"It hurt like fuck n still looks tight", Grande said, still happy with the result. "I wouldn't have lasted one more symbol lmao". Prior to deleting the initial Instagram post, she had joked that she's a "huge fan of tiny bbq grills". "They got us very tipsy, so we bought seven engagement rings, and when I got back to the studio I gave everybody a friendship ring", she explained.

Ariana Grande's affinity for tattoos is well documented, some incursions better conceived than others. However, native Japanese speakers pointed out in the comments that the tattoo actually meant "BBQ Grill" in Japanese.

The "Thank You, Next" singer revealed her new design to her followers today, when she posted a short video of her hand to her Instagram story.

And although she subsequently made a decision to delete her post, the message was captured by The Shade Room, prompting an online backlash against the singer.

Grande released "7 Rings" earlier this month, and the song climbed to the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week.

Ed Sheeran has a Chinese tattoo that is supposed to read, "Galway Girl" - the title of his hit single, but instead reads "Galway Grill".
