Earlier today, ATEEZ‘s leader Hongjoong and maknae Jongho held a livestream for fans, after the older member teased that a “cute friend” would be joining him.

Of course, one of the first things that ATINYs noticed is that Hongjoong’s previously red hair has now been dyed blond!
Hongjoong has gone blond before — the most recent time being last year during the group’s time on Kingdom: Legendary War — and the color definitely suits him well!
What had fans even more excited, however, is when eagle-eyed viewers spotted what appears to be a new tattoo on Hongjoong’s inner arm!

This is his second known tattoo — with his first being the word “FAITH” written vertically on his ankle with wings on other side — and ATINYs are excitedly talking about it on Twitter.

Later on, when asked about the tattoo on the app Universe, Hongjoong remained playful and mysterious about it.

Due to his hint, several fans are guessing that the tattoo says “No 1 Like Me”, since he’s known for using this phrase often!
Whatever it is, ATINYs will have to be patient for Hongjoong to be ready to share his tattoo in full!
