The internet has been having a field day or rather, a week-long diss at American sweetheart Ariande Grande over her misspelled Japanese tattoo.
Ariana Grande’s new tattoo “七輪” means Japanese style bbq grill, not 7 rings. 😭 If you want to know about 七輪, just google “SHICHIRIN” pic.twitter.com/HuQM2EwI62

On Tuesday, when Ariana Grande posted a picture of her new palm tattoo, she fully intended for it to mean 7 Rings in Japanese. She inked the supposed lettering after her new single 7 Rings and posted it on her Instagram account. That's when it starts to go wrong. Till now, netizens are still poking fun at her new tattoo. The post has since been removed.
She inked the Kanji symbols 七輪 which together read as "shichirin" in Japanese. Shichirin means small charcoal (or BBQ) grill in its native language. In 7 Rings music video, her team has correctly translated 7 Ring to 七つの指輪.
When one user pointed out her permanent typo, she replied, "Indeed, I left out 'つの指' which should have gone in between." She continued, "It hurt like f- and still looks tight. I wouldn't have lasted one more symbol lmao."
Since then, she has corrected her tattoo but now...
As Japanese reads vertically, native speakers commented on her new tattoo that it means "Japanese BBQ finger ♡."

If it is of any consolation, the first tattoo is close enough to match the meaning of 7 Rings in mandarin.
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.
Also she has hot dogs for a hand. https://t.co/UnuZhmom7M

Being a celebrity, Ariana was offered a $1.5million USD deal to cover up and advocate for laser tattoo removal.
Laser Away sent Ariana a deal where they would not only help get rid of her tattoo but pay her $1.5 million in exchange for one post a month about the company for a year. - Narcity.com
$1.5 million US dollar is equivalent to more than $2 million Singapore dollars! While most of us have to pay a neat amount to rectify tattoo blunders, this incident may become an opportunity for her. Regardless, good luck!
