BTS’ Butter music video is finally out and fans can’t help but swoon over the male singer’s new look. The Butter video was released on May 21. One of the BTS members who looks dramatically different in the video is Jungkook.
Fans can’t help but talk about Jungkook’s new look after watching the Butter music video. The pop singer sported her new long purple hair and also pierced her eyebrows when showing off her dance moves. In addition, fans also noticed Jungkook’s tattoos. Fans first saw the tattoo on Jungkook’s arm in January 2021. The singer accidentally revealed it on the January 19 episode of Run BTS!
Since then, this is the first time BTS fans have seen clear and undisturbed tattoos. The design that people have not seen before is a microphone. The microphone tattoo is placed right next to the guy’s eyes and crossword tattoos. Although Jungkook has yet to reveal the meaning behind the tattoo on his sleeve, fans think it shows his love for music.
ALL JUNGKOOK’S TATTOOS AND THEIR MEANING
The Army Tattoo
The most prominent of Jungkook’s tats is the ARMY one. The A in ARMY has no line across it, which makes it look like an upside-down V. The pop group’s fans think it’s a combination of the members’ initials (V, RM, and Yoongi).
The J tattoo
Placed on his right finger is a tattoo that says ‘J.’ It’s placed right over the ‘M’ of ARMY. Fans believe it stands for Jimin, J-Hope, and Jin’s names.
The BTS heart tattoo
Right underneath the ARMY tattoo is the heart, which fans believe signifies his love for the BTS fans.
Jungkook’s right hand acts as a perfect canvas for his beautiful tattoos, as most of them are placed there. The Crown is located on his right pointer finger, making it one of his more visible tattoos.
Fans have many theories about what it means, but they couldn’t agree on one meaning for it.
The thumb one
The 23-year-old singer also has “0613” tattooed below his right thumb. Fans think it refers to June 13, which is the day BTS debuted in 2013.
Three black lines
Placed on Jungkook’s right arm are three black lines. Fans think it’s connected to the ̾k̾o̾r̾e̾an flag, which has similar lines.
A golden coloured eye
While there are very few pictures of this, back in 2020, ARMY supposedly noticed an undiscovered tattoo right below the singer’s elbow. It was a golden-coloured eye.
Most Beautiful Moment in Life tattoo
In a clip from BTS’ 5th Muster Magic Shop: ̾j̾a̾p̾a̾n Edition from August 2020, Jungkook featured a new tattoo right under his elbow. The tattoo reads, “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life” in traditional Chinese characters. Fans believe that it is a callback to their HYYH era from 2015.
HYYH is Hwa Yang Yeon Hwa in Chinese and refers to the happiest/most beautiful moment in life.
In Jan 2021, Big Hit shared a behind-the-scenes snippet of Jungkook. The singer was filming ON at the time. Fans noticed that at the 1:23 mark, they saw a glimpse of what looked like a tiger tattoo.
ARMYs realize that it has a connection to ̾k̾o̾r̾e̾an culture. In the past, the tiger population was very high in ̾k̾o̾r̾e̾a and it was called the Land of the Tigers
