Although Korean society might be quite strict when it comes to tattoos, one person who has never been afraid to showcase his own ink is BTS‘s Jimin.
Back in 2014, ARMYs got the surprise of their lives when Jimin revealed his first-ever tattoo during that year’s Mnet Asian Music Awards. At the time, it was revealed to be temporary but in 2019, it was seen again and constantly throughout the next few years, showcasing that he’d made it permanent.
Since then, the idol has continued to showcase each tattoo he’s got. Whether it’s the “13” on his wrist that could either refer to BTS’s debut date (June 13, 2013) or Jimin’s birthday (October 13, 1995) or the words “Forever Young” on his arm, each has a significant meaning to the idol.
Well, it seems like the idol might have a new addition but this one has an even deeper meaning when it comes to BTS. The hot topic lately with the group has been “friendship tattoos.” V was the first member to talk about the group planning to have matching tattoos while answering a fan on Weverse.
Since then, both RM and J-Hope have revealed their own matching “7” tattoos which are located on their ankles. It seems like the “friendship” tattoo agenda was truly on the cards.
Well, it seems like Jimin also has his, and netizens think they’ve caught a glimpse during a recent performance on M Countdown. The group made their return to music shows after two years when they performed “For Youth” and “Yet To Come (The Most Beautiful Moment).”
During the performance, Jimin obviously wowed with his dazzling vocals and stunning visuals in two very emotional and touching songs.
Yet, while Jimin was singing his heart out, ARMYs noticed a small tattoo on his finger. After looking at it throughout the two videos, it seemed to be a “7” like those that his other members have. It unsurprisingly led to people believing that it was Jimin’s own tattoo.
When the images and videos were shared on social media, netizens couldn’t get over how intricate and delicate the design looked. Also, the placement seemed to signify that BTS was always close to him.

Yet, it isn’t the first time ARMYs have seen the tattoo. Earlier in the year, many thought they saw it when BTS returned from America. At the time, ARMYs thought it was just a piece of string from his outfit, but now that doesn’t seem to be the case.
With three out of seven members having confirmed their tattoos, and V explaining that he and Jungkook will get it soon, ARMYs will be excited to see which member is next.
