Sometimes you gotta know exactly what you’re getting.
Ariana Grande debuted a new tattoo on social media and fans quickly pointed out that it doesn’t mean “7 Rings” like the singer thought it did. Ironically enough, she got the tattoo only days after the song hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts, making history as Ari’s last two major singles, “thank u, next” and “7 Rings” each debuted at No. 1 on the charts.
The new palm tattoo appeared on social media and according to fans fluent in Japanese, the tattoo actually says “shichirin” which is a small Japanese barbecue grill.
Upon the realization, Grande deleted the pic and later explained that the tattoo hurt like f**k but was still tight.
“i wouldn’t have lasted one more symbol lmao,” she tweeted. “but this spot also peels a ton and won’t last so if I miss it enough, i’ll suffer thru the whole thing next time.”
Let it be a lesson on kanji tattoos folks, always consult someone who knows the language before getting anything!
