Prior to RM’s tattoo, Jungkook and Jimin were the only members to have revealed any tattoos. They both recently got new additions too.

Still, both V and RM had recently debated whether or not to get tattoos. V had even shared that all seven members were considering getting matching friendship tattoos, as suggested by Suga.

Now, it appears that it may have happened, and RM is at least the first to debut his.


BTS just made their anticipated comeback with anthology album Proof and title track “Yet To Come.” RM shared some updates celebrating the release on Instagram Stories.

Immediately following, he shared a black-and-white image of a minimalistic “7” tattoo on his ankle.

It’s clearly a nod to BTS, making us believe this could be the potential matching tattoo with members.

Later, BTS updated Twitter. A member shared a now-deleted photo of his lower half in shorts to display the tattoo.

While many assumed it to be RM, a lot also theorized it may be V showing off the friendship tattoo. So, it created a debate in the comment section.

Shortly after, it was confirmed to be RM by RM himself when he posted the flipped image to Instagram Stories!
