Since Taeyong’s “Rude Boy” tattoo has become well-known, it didn’t take long for fans to notice the new tattoo above it.

When taking a closer look, the tattoo is three pieces of barbed wire held by a hand forming different symbols on each one. The first one appears to be a peace sign, the second a middle finger, and the last is the iconic rocker hand sign. That wasn’t the only one NCTzens noticed, either.

As soon as Taeyong uploaded a few behind-the-scenes photos, fans spotted another new tattoo on the other side of that same arm.

Although it couldn’t be seen when zooming in, eagle-eyed fans were able to figure it out thanks to a different photo of Taeyong.

While Taeyong’s barbed wire tattoo showed off his confident side, the other tattoo was an outline of a paper plane that tapped into his soft side.

Because Taeyong has the duality to go from charismatic to shy, it makes sense for him to do the same with his tattoos.
