New twist in Ariana Grande 'barbecue grill' tattoo saga


Not to be defeated, Grande went into recovery mode and immediately began discussing how to fix the tattoo with her "tutor", sharing a screenshot of their conversation to her Instagram Story.

It makes sense that she needed some lidocaine since after getting the misspelled tattoo the first time, she told her fans that it hurt a lot.

As fans know, earlier this week, the star shared the new tattoo she got in honor of "7 Rings" and what that song means to her. She chose to have it inked not in English, but Japanese, but it unfortunately let to a botch-up.

In order to fix the error, Grande has paid another visit to tattoo artist Kane Navasard, and on Wednesday, she uploaded a new photo of the updated ink. The comments about her tattoo may have gotten to her, as Ari already fixed it!

Ariana Grande's "corrected" tattoo.

She wrote: "slightly better".

However the tutor's explanation had the additional symbol placed above the original two, while the tattoo correction has the new one placed below.

"So, although she has all the necessary kanji components on her palm, they're all laid out in a mixed up, confusing, nonsensical jumble". Peep all that here, and stream the "7 rings" remix below. The body art now somewhat hilariously translates to "small charcoal grill finger heart".

Princess Nokia herself even addressed Grande about the eerie similarity between "7 Rings" and the song "Mine" off her own mixtape 1992 in a since-deleted social media post.

2 Chainz doesn't say anything revelatory on the "7 Rings" remix, though I do like this line: "See, you didn't expect this, you think like a robot / I put bands in your face like Botox".

Unbeknown to the Nickelodeon alum, Japanese is written and read top to bottom and right to left.
