Ariana Grande fixes misspelled palm tattoo after online mockery

Earlier this week, it was revealed that while the 25-year-old singer meant to get new ink that was in honor of her brand new single, she actually got a tattoo that said bbq grill in Japanese instead.

Despite playing it off, as of last night (January 30), it appears she tried to redeem her mistake by adding more ink to fix the error.

'Slightly better. Thanks to my tutor for helping me fix it and to @kanenavassard for being such a legend.

She also shared the text conversation with the tutor who specifically advised her to add the character above the initial tattoo in order to make sense in Japanese, as characters are typically read top to bottom, right to left.

Ari shared a video to her story on January 31, early in the morning, showing her corrected tattoo. And to my doctor for the lidocaine shots (no joke). She also made a point to inform her followers that she is a "huge fan of tiny BBQ grills". Miss u man. I actually really liked u, ' the pop star wrote alongside the black and white snap of her palm.

An evidently embarrassed Ari revealed she couldn't stomach the pain, saying: "Indeed, I left out "つの指" which should have gone in between". However, lots of fans noticed that the tattoo was missing a symbol and actually translated to "shichirin", a word for a BBQ grill. It hurt like f- n still looks tight. "I wouldn't have lasted one more symbol lmao", she tweeted.

"If I miss it enough, I'll suffer thru the whole thing next time", she said, later writing "Pls leave me and my tambourine grill alone. thank u".

Some were ironically sympathetic: "Met with all the Asians, and our official ruling is that the Ariana Grande tattoo is good", wrote Twitter user Kevin Nguyen.
