One of the hottest topics of 2022 was BTS and their friendship tattoos. Throughout the year, most of the members shared their matching tattoos with the world, showcasing their strong friendship.
BTS’s V was the latest member to reveal his tattoo, sending the internet into meltdown.
V was actually one of the first members to speak about the tattoo in a Weverse post to an ARMY. Yet, despite the message, V was one of the two members that hadn’t actually revealed his tattoo properly.
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 🥰🥰
On December 16, 2022, V finally revealed his tattoo after sharing some photos and videos from his recent trip to Mexico. Zooming in, it was clear that after months of speculation, V finally revealed that his “7” friendship tattoo was on his leg, just above his knee.
After the tattoos have been revealed by the members, the tattoo artist Polyc SJ has been sharing his own photos of the artwork, with the permission of the members.
On January 3, Polyc SJ shared some close-up photos of V’s tattoo. Although the photos posted by V showed the tattoos, they were quite far away, and the most recent shot from the Instagram account is a zoomed-in version of the beautifully unique “7” design for the idol.
Along with the photo, netizens believe that the artist also shared that V had his tattoo done with Jungkook. There had been some confusion in photos shared of the studio. Netizens had noticed that V’s signature wasn’t there, which led to many believing he hadn’t got one.
In his Instagram story, Polyc SJ explained that he had become so overwhelmed with notifications that he forgot.
Many of you were asking why V’s signature was not in the shop. When I uploaded Jungkook’s work, there were so many Instagram notifications, so I got overwhelmed that I forgot to get it. I hope this answered your curiosity.

Although for some ARMYs, it was exciting to hear that V went to get his tattoo with Jungkook, it was something that was basically revealed by V in 2022.
After their pre-recording for M Countdown in June 2022, where V wowed with his duality, the idol surprised fans by turning on a live broadcast.
In particular, one moment that stood out was when V was asked about the “friendship tattoos,” and the idol confirmed they were happening. At the time, V revealed that he hadn’t had his done at that time, explaining the reason why.
I haven’t decided where to get my friendship tattoo. After deciding where to get a tattoo, I will go with Jungkook.
— BTS’s V
At the time, Jungkook also hadn’t revealed his tattoo. Many believe that from V’s words and now the picture from the tattoo artist, the group’s two youngest members went together and kept their promise.
