K-Pop artist's tattoos

5 K-Pop idols' tattoos you didn't know about and their meaning

Although in countries like South Korea tattoos are not seen with very good eyes and it is even forbidden to make them without a medical license, K-Pop singers are full of them and some have a very deep meaning. Keep reading to find out more.

  • K-Pop bands are mainly from South Korea and in that country getting a tattoo is not as easy as it is for us in The States, artists must have a medical license to make them.
  • Most of Korean Pop singers have ink on their bodies and often show them off on social media, but they have to cover them with stickers on TV performances.
  • Recently we discovered that BTS member, Jungkook had most of his arm covered with tattoos, and we've never noticed it before so it was a huge surprised to the rapper's fans.

Nowadays having tattoos on the body is something we take naturally.

However, this was not always the case, in the past only certain groups of people wore tattoos and in fact they were not very well regarded by society.

Luckily times have changed and expressing our feelings or capturing some important passage in our life is something normal and natural.
