RIP tiny charcoal grill.

Sadly, Ari's ink problems still may not be over... as it turns out, her updated work might have an even sillier meaning now than before. Last night, after consulting with her Japanese tutor and receiving a shot of lidocaine from her physician to cope with the pain of sitting for back-to-back hand tattoos, she added to the design to get the message right.

However, many social media users noted that Grande hadn't actually managed to fix the tattoo, as the new character symbols mean it now says "Japanese BBQ finger" or "small charcoal grill finger", instead of "7 Rings".

One day later, her opinion seems to have changed.

"Why... how... now Ariana's tattoo reads 'Japanese BBQ finger", Japan-based Buzzfeed reporter Eimi Yamamitsu tweeted. It hurt like f- n still looks tight.

But soon enough, Grande was informed that the Kanji was misspelled, and it read 'shichirin, ' a word used to refer to Japanese style barbeque! I wouldn't have lasted one more symbol lmao. She also unveiled a new line of merchandise to go with the single's release.

But Grande's fans and critics alerted her that "七輪" doesn't signify "7 rings", as she probably intended.

She posted a now-deleted photo of the tat on her official Instagram account, and fans were quick to point out it had a misspelling.
