Ariana tries to fix tattoo

Posted February 03, 2019

Although she's had the tattoo amended, fans have pointed out on social media that the message still isn't right.

The pop star had meant to permanently celebrate her new single "7 Rings" with a tattoo, but instead, her fans were quick to point out that she was missing a few characters and instead had tattooed the word "shichirin", which translates to a small Japanese-style charcoal grill.

In order to fix the error, Ariana has paid another visit to tattoo artist Kane Navasard, and on Wednesday, she uploaded a new photo of the updated ink.

One user wrote: "Why... how... now Ariana's tattoo reads "Japanese BBQ finger" (sic)". "Slightly better", she wrote.

The 25-year-old later took to Twitter to show-off her new inking only to discover a rather embarrassing problem. "And to my doctor for the (numbing medication) lidocaine shots (no joke)", the star wrote alongside a black and white snap of her design on her Instagram Stories.

In her defense, Grande has been taking the jokes quite well even captioning a now-deleted post of the new tattoo "rip tiny charcoal grill. Miss u man. I actually really like u".

However, Ariana suggested she wasn't planning to have it amended because she claimed she wouldn't have been able to cope with the pain of having it made longer and wasn't expecting the design to stay permanently anyway. I wouldn't have lasted one more symbol lmao.

And she admitted she liked the unintended message. "Also that's how u end up w tiny grill / circle / tambourine on your hand".
