If there is something you don't want to make a mistake with, it's a tattoo, after all they are for LIFE. 

And Ari is going to be suffering for life (unless she manages to cover it up or get painful removal) thanks to a Japanese tattoo that wasn't botched once, but now twice. 

If at first you don't succeed try, try again, right?

The original tattoo was meant to say "7 Rings" in Japanese but ended up saying "BBQ grill".

When she posted a photo of it and the fans made her aware of the mistranslation, she went back to get it amended. 

However, the singer may want to get better advice after her attempt to fix it went horribly wrong.

Grande took to Instagram to show off the correction - but that post has now been deleted. 

"Slightly better. Thanks to my tutor for helping me fix," she wrote. "and to my doctor for the lidocaine shots (no joke). rip tiny charcoal grill. miss u man. I actually really liked you."

Her tutor had advised her to add the Japanese character for "finger" so that it would change the translation to "seven finger circle" or "seven rings".

However, the new symbol has been added underneath the character for seven, rather than in-between and above the original inking.

So now her tattoo says "Japanese BBQ finger' or "a fiery finger."

Third time lucky perhaps?
