The pop superstar shared a picture on Twitter and Instagram of her new tattoo, a set of Japanese characters that was supposed to read “seven rings” after her new song, on the palm of her hand.
But Japanese fans quickly realised the phrase actually translated to the Japanese word 'shichirin', a 'small charcoal grill'. Basically, a tiny barbecue.
Perhaps a little embarrassed, the 25-year-old deleted the photo from her Instagram, though it remains on her Japanese Twitter account.

However, in a since-deleted tweet, Ariana wrote that she had left out the rest of the characters which would have spelled the words correctly because "it hurt like f***" and she "wouldn’t have lasted another symbol".
