Well this is awkward. Ariana Grande was showing off her new ‘7 Rings’ tattoo in Japanese characters…

It actually read Shichirin which is a form of BBQ grill.

We’re all for a good BBQ, but we don’t think this one has the same underlying meaning to Ari. 

The singer first posted a photo of her new ink on Instagram and was flooded with people correcting her within the first five seconds. 


She has since tweeted (and subsequently deleted) a response to the tattoo fail. 

“Indeed, I left out ‘つの指’ which should have gone in between. It hurt like f**k n still looks tight,” she posted. 

“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.”

AWKWARD! Thank u, next!
