We don't have to tell you that getting a tattoo is a big decision — they stay put unless removed, and even then, the process is no walk in the park: It's costly and, in many cases, painful — perhaps even moreso than getting the tattoo in the first place! Don't get us wrong, we LOVE ink — when it's done right. Alas, there's quite a few celebrities that could've benefitted from the "for life" memo.
Take Ariana Grande, for instance: The pop star made countless headlines in January 2019 when she debuted a hand tat that was meant to be the title track of her latest single, "7 Rings," but instead spelled out a phrase that made her seem like the biggest BBQ fan around.
She's certainly not alone: Other A-listers, including Jessie J, Drake, and even Rihanna have all racked up a fail where their tattoos are concerned. Whether due to a spelling error, like the typo David Beckham has been saddled with, or a design that's seemingly in poor taste (we're looking at you, Chris Brown!), there's plenty of cautionary tattoo tales out there among Hollywood's elite.
Read on for all of Tinseltown's worst offenders!
Luckily, this one’s a relatively easy fix should she ever get the urge to be grammatically correct!
OK, but like … what if she ever wants to become a vegetarian? Just sayin!'
The Grammy winner responded in a since-deleted tweet: "Indeed, I left out 'つの指' which should have gone in between,” she conceded. “It hurt like f*ck 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 ... Also ... huge fan of tiny BBQ grills," she said. Several days later, however, she showed off what she thought was a corrected version of the tattoo, which featured the missing symbol. “Slightly better. Thanks to my tutor for helping me fix and to @kanenavasard for being a legend. And to my doctor for the lidocaine shots (no joke). RIP tiny charcoal grill. Miss u man. I actually really liked u!" she announced on social media. The only problem? According to Twitter, the new symbol's placement was off, changing its meaning to something even worse: "Japanese BBQ finger." Cringe!
