Fans have been obsessed with Jungkook’s incredibly detailed tattoo sleeve ever since we first got a glimpse at the full thing. It includes a tiger, which relates to Korean culture, and “ARMY” and his members’ initials written across his knuckles.

Not only is Jungkook only 24 years old and speaking for the United Nations, but he’s done it all without attempting to hide who he is!

Unfortunately, there’s a prevalent stereotype that in order to be professional or taken seriously, one must have the minimal amount of body modifications, if any. It’s common for people to cover up their tattoos with makeup or clothing and take out any jewelry. However, Jungkook has let his tattoos and piercings shine throughout the entire trip to New York!

ARMYs are praising Jungkook for staying true to himself and shattering the stigma against tattoos and piercings. He proved that a person can be professional and deserving of respect even while tatted and pierced!
