NCT 127’s Taeyong Shows Off 2 New Tattoos

He now has seven tattoos in his collection.

After making fans emotional by adding a sweet touch to his Ruby tattoo, NCT 127‘s Taeyong caused even more excitement when showing off two more tattoos.

When Taeyong performed at a concert wearing new tattoos, fans weren’t sure if they were real since he likes to try out temporary ones. It turned out that the circular one on his right shoulder was indeed real.

Taking a closer look, it’s a checkerboard circle with “RUDE BOY” placed in a center black square. The logo looked familiar to fans because Taeyong previously wore a pin with the same design on his Instagram. That wasn’t the only new addition to his growing tattoo collection, though.

On Taeyong’s covers for his W Korea spread, he showed off yet another new tattoo. Similar to the placement of fellow member Yuta‘s tattoo, Taeyong also has a tattoo on the lower left side of his abs.

Looking closer, the tattoo appears to be the cartoon character Astro Boy, which Taeyong supposedly said represents himself.

With these two new tattoos in his collection, Taeyong now has seven—until he adds more. Fortunately, everyone’s looking forward to the unique art he’ll get next.
