Ariana Grande Twitter Roasted Over "Orientalist" Tattoo

Ariana Grande is the latest celebrity to add to her growing tattoo collection but the singer has sparked a fan debate over what the Japanese ink translates to. Meant to read "7 Rings" in Japanese as a tribute to Grande's latest single, the art actually translates to "shichirin, which is a small barbecue grill".

Grande, 25, had posted a now-deleted photo of the new body art on Instagram before her fans pointed out the spelling error.

Ariana Grande got a tattoo on her hand, which was meant to say "7 rings". "I wouldn't have lasted one more symbol lmao", she tweeted. It hurt like fuck n still looks tight. Before long, she deleted those tweets as well.

Ariana Grande responded to claims she mistranslated her tattoo.

We're very happy, there's a great cohesion in the team, we've got some fantastic partners and we're just working more together. The race was called 10 minutes short of completion because heavy rain had created driving conditions too unsafe to continue.

Ironically, the correct Japanese translation of "7 Rings" can be seen at the 12-second mark in the song's music video. She continued, "That's why we have these, and that's where the song idea came from". However, in the comment section she confirmed it was indeed her hand, her tattoo and her mistake.

Her album, also titled Thank U, Next is set for release on February 8, just in time for Valentine's Day.

Having some fun at her expense, plenty of people have been posting pictures of Grande's tattoo - next to images of grills. Singer Ed Sheeran memorably got "Galway Grill" inked instead of the real title of his track "Galway Girl".

Getting a tattoo can sometimes be a hit or miss affair. A shichirin is a actually "small charcoal grill" or small "BB grill". Unfortunately, it looks like our beloved Ariana Grande just fell into that tattoo trap.
