Although tattoos have always been seen as a taboo in Korea, it seems as if more and more idols are breaking the traditions and using art to express their thoughts and personalities.
In particular, one idol that has gained attention for his ink is BTS‘s Jungkook, which has wowed netizens with his various tattoos.
Well, it seems as if the topic of tattoos is something that BTS hasn’t been able to stop talking about. It all started when V revealed that he and his fellow BTS members are planning to get matching friendship tattoos regardless.
ARMY: Don’t get a tattoo!!!!!!!!!!
V: That’s something I’ll decide on my own, and the members and I always talked about getting a friendship tattoo. We’re going to get a friendship tattoo one day. Look forward to it 🥰🥰
Or when RM revealed that he had an idea for one that he’d been waiting to get. He answered, “I used to…plan to have one. And I actually had a sketch.”
Well, it seems like the talk about tattoos never seems to end.
On April 16 (PST), J-Hope, V, and Jimin surprised ARMYs after the third day of their PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LAS VEGAS show by chatting to them through a live broadcast. During the video, the members chatted about everything from boxing, to trying to protect ARMYs from NSFW pictures, and more.
During the broadcast, the members started chatting to ARMYs, and at one point, they must’ve seen a lot of comments about tattoos because J-Hope asked, “How do ARMYs know about the matching tattoos?” Of course, V was honest and shared that he told them.
J-Hope then wondered what ARMYs actually thought about the members getting them and asked them to send emojis showing their reactions. The idol was quite surprised to see the reaction.
Oh! They like it a lot more than expected! There’s no X! just O!
The members then started talking about where they’d have their tattoos if they had them. J-Hope was left quite shocked when V explained that he would have it on his left buttcheek, and Jimin explained that he’d pick to have it on his belly button, even though he had an outwards belly button!
Although it seemed quite funny to ARMYs to hear where the members wanted it, J-Hope was a bit more methodical, adding, “Wouldn’t it look like the dirt (on body)?”
All of the members started laughing, but V then melted everyone’s hearts when he explained that ARMYs love everything about the members. J-Hope then added that there is a close bond between ARMYs and BTS that is undeniable as he explained, “We are that close, ARMY and us.”
Whether BTS get them or not, it’s always nice to know that the members are so open with ARMYs and want to share everything with them. Hopefully, if it does happen, J-Hope is there to give some sensible advice to the group on where to have their tattoos.
