Ariana Grande makes Billboard history with another No. 1 hit

After the photo was initially shared over on her official Japanese account, and the mistake pointed out, many fans questioned whether it was an actual photo of Ariana's hand. But fans on Twitter were quick to note that the way the tattoo was spelled translates to "shichirin" which means a Japanese style barbecue grill.

This isn't Grande's first Asian-inspired tattoo: She first got the words "let's sing" inked on her upper arm in Japanese at the start of 2019.

Replying to one fan, she wrote: "Indeed I left out [Japanese characters] which should have gone in between". It hurt like fuck n still looks tight.

"Also...huge fan of tiny bbq grills", she wrote. Before long, she deleted those tweets as well.

The correct spelling of "7 Rings" should have been "七つの指輪", which is how it appeared in her music video.

Ariana Grande attends the 13th annual Billboard Women in Music event at Pier 36 in NY on December 6, 2018. When the music video for "7 Rings" premiered, captions were added. Many believe this is also the case for her misspelled tattoo and her nonchalant response. Unfortunately, it looks like our beloved Ariana Grande just fell into that tattoo trap.

In light of that, the Japanese character tattoo itself, not to mention her explanation of the mistake, was just another case of Grande flippantly trying on another cultural identity insensitively.

Getting a tattoo can sometimes be a hit or miss affair.

Grande also recently made headlines for covering up a tattoo of hers that celebrated her ex-fiance Pete Davidson's father - a cop who died on 9/11 - with a tribute to recently deceased singer Mac Miller, another one of her ex-boyfriends.
