MONSTA X‘s I.M is one of the few members with tattoos and has quite a few in his collection. He has a big flower tattoo on his back beside a quote on his left shoulder.
I.M also has a small tattoo on his wrist. As the group headed to Germany for the KPOP.FLEX festival, fans were surprised to see he has a new tattoo as well.
Keeping his airport fashion simple and chic with a white shirt and light wash jeans, no one could miss the new tattoo on I.M’s left forearm.
Seeing the tattoo up close, it turned out to be a flower design in the traditional black and white style. It didn’t take long for fans to try and figure out the specific type.
Since MONSTA X’s anniversary falls on May 14, one fan pointed out that the flower could be a columbine because it’s the birth flower for May and June. They also noted it could be an iris from its similar look.
changkyun’s new tattoo might represent a type of columbine flower. this flower’s color is usually purple and it symbolizes aspiration, endurance, risk-taking, good fortune, faith, and peace.

Whichever flower it is, I.M’s lovely tattoo must have a beautiful meaning to him.
