On February 2nd, Jungkook surprised ARMY with a live broadcast on Weverse. One of the moments that caught everyone’s attention was when the BTS member talked about his tattoos and what they mean to him.
The idol explained that he wanted his first tattoo to be done on a part of his body that is visible as he is very proud of ARMY.
He then intentionally placed the crown tattoo on the “A” for ARMY, and the “J” on his finger is for his name JK. He also tattooed his favorite emoji on his middle finger. And BTS’ debut date, 6/13, tattooed on the side of her palm.

Also, on his forearm, he tattooed the date he arrived in Seoul. With that, he added two lines he particularly likes, “I’d rather be dead than cool” and “Making hay while the sun shines“, He also has his birth flower tattooed next to the phrase “Please love me“.
In addition, he has a tattoo of a pocket watch showing the time of the South Korean’s birth and with a chain this is attached to a microphone, meaning Jungkook was born to be a singer.
Towards his elbow, he has the Chinese letters meaning Hwayangyeonha (the most beautiful moment of life) and another inspired by the traditional Korean painting, dancheong.

Moreover, during the live broadcast, Golden Maknae also explained the reason why he recently covered up some of his tattoos.
He has a tattoo of a cloud and lightning bolt near his elbow, which was originally a different design, but the experience was not pleasant for him as the it hurt him a lot and his arm became swollen, so he covered it with the cloud pattern and then added colors.
Near his wrist, the idol covered his tattoo of three parallel lines symbolizing ‘Geon‘, paradise in Korean. However, because many people didn’t seem to like the design, he covered it with a snake, which denotes growth because of his skin changes.
In addition, Jungkook had a controversial tattoo of an eye on his forearm, which meant that he should always be careful with his actions, as many people were watching him all the time. He covered it with the phrase “Bullet Proof” representing the group.
“I had an eye here, but a lot of people didn’t like the eye and said it looked like the Illuminati“, he explained amused at the controversial reason he covered it.
