Ariana Grande thought she was going to have a great day, her latest single “7 Rings” recently became the No.1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 and to celebrate the achievement she decided to get the song’s title tattooed on the palm of her hand in Japanese Kanji characters.
Totally thrilled about her new ink, she shared a picture of the tat on Instagram and users quickly pointed out that her tattoo definitely did not translate to “7 Rings” but instead shichirin which is a small charcoal grill. As you can imagine the singer is getting cooked like the food that would be used on the grill for her huge tattoo fail that she quickly took down off her IG page once the mistake was pointed out.
In a now-deleted Tweet, the singer explained the bad ink in the most Ariana Grande way to a fan stating:
“Indeed, I left out ‘つの指’ which should have gone in between.”
“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 [sic].”
Well, let this be a reminder you should really consider not getting tattoos in different languages if you’re not sure what it means. In the meantime, if you need a good laugh hit the gallery below to see the well deserve jokes Grande’s “BBQ Grill” tattoo earned.

Ariana Grande after being vegan for fun and getting a asian bbq tattoo, boycotting an asian artist and insinuating they use bots for charts, appropriating asian culture, and slapping arigato on a sweater so that we might forget her clout chasing xenophobia pic.twitter.com/rEmKX30HX6— christian (@jingolasrex) January 30, 2019
to be clear i’m a fan of Ariana Grande but her accidentally getting a tattoo in Japanese that says “small charcoal grill” instead of “7 rings” is genuinely one of the funnest things i’ve ever heard— ellie schnitt (@holy_schnitt) January 30, 2019
Ariana Grande bringing back misspelled Japanese character tats is peak 2000s nostalgia— Molly Lambert 🦔 (@mollylambert) January 30, 2019
lmao at ariana grande pretending like her tattoo was just “too painful” and saying she purposely got a badly translated tattoo instead of admitting that she‘s just a white chick that cant understand Chinese or Japanese— xD (@coburgcoochie) January 30, 2019

ariana accidentally tattooing “bbq grill” on her hand in Japanese & brushing it off like nothing while still living her best life is the level of unbothered that i aspire to be— bryana salaz (@bryanasalaz) January 30, 2019
This is in no way a fail. Massive improvement, BBQ Grill is a great nickname— StrangestDaze (@Cellularlinks) January 30, 2019
Guys, how many times do we Asians have to tell non-Asians to stop getting Asian tats for no reason? why did she need "7 rings" in japanese and not english? like. THIS IS WHAT YOU GET.— Kimmy The Pooh (@kimmythepooh) January 30, 2019
Also she has hot dogs for a hand. https://t.co/UnuZhmom7M

And I'm literally saying that was the dumbest shit I've ever read. If I went to get a tattoo that reads "We believe in Love" but it hurt and said just take out the words 'believe' and 'love' I'd be a fool to put it on my body. Being in Japanese doesn't change that. BBQ GRILL!? 🤣— Day One Glitch (@BBF8droid) January 30, 2019
So @ArianaGrande just removed essential characters and wrote "BBQ grill" instead of "7 Rings" on her hand then just called it a day because...she respects Japanese culture? 😐 pic.twitter.com/KXZGqnQE6i— Day One Glitch (@BBF8droid) January 30, 2019
You’re telling me her vegan ass knowingly got “Japanese BBQ grill” tattooed on her hand? pic.twitter.com/MAXBev9Rlm— 🤍 (@SelOnTheBrain) January 30, 2019
