Ariana Grande has been grilled by fans after they discovered that her new hand tattoo of Japanese kanji characters does not read as the title of her single 7 Rings as intended, but instead translates 'Japanese-style barbecue grill'.
The singer showed off her most recent ink on her palm to fans this week, but the eagle-eyed among them were quick to point out the typo.
Grande wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post: "This felt super good @kanenavasard [tattooist] jk (everyone thinks this is a fake hand but it's indeed…. my hand."
And then social media dragged her over hot coals.
"Ariana Grande's new tattoo '??' means Japanese style bbq grill, not 7 rings," one user tweeted. "If you want to know about ??, just google 'SHICHIRIN' [type of grill]."
"Imagine getting bbq grill tattooed on your palm," another wrote.

In a deleted reply, Grande owned up to the error.
"Indeed, I left out '???' which should have gone in between," she admitted. "It hurt like **** n still looks tight. I wouldn't have lasted one more symbol lmao.
"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."
Feel the burn!
