The art of tattoos is one that is complex and full of beauty! There’s the design, the thrill of the needle, and much more. Here’s a list of some of the most outstanding tattoos that our favorite Korean artists have flaunted!
Note: in no ways is this list comprehensive of all idols with tattoos or all the tattoos the featured idols have.
1. BIGBANG’s G-Dragon
G-Dragon is perhaps one of the most well-known idols for having tattoos – and lots of them. He confidently shows them off and is not afraid to encourage others to also get their fix of tattoos.
2. Lee Hyori
Veteran idol Lee Hyori has a few tattoos here and there, but she is most known for the one along the back of her arm! It has even graced the cover of magazines!
3. iKON’s Bobby
Bobby, the irresistible rapper of iKON, has the quote “Fear only God Hate only sins” tattooed on his back. It is particularly special because his father has the exact same one!
4. f(x)’s Amber
One of the many reasons Amber is an outstanding role model for all is that she is 100 percent genuine all the time. She offers a lot of valuable insight when it comes to thinking differently, and she’s not afraid to be herself. It’s truly admirable.
5. Block B’s Zico
Zico has multiple tattoos adorning his body, but his most notable one has got to be the portrait of his mother!
6. Block B’s Taeil
Another Block B member with tattoos is, of course, the oldest member Taeil! Taeil’s tattoos are all over his body, most noticeably his fingers, and are full of vibrant colors that will attract your eyes!
7. BIGBANG’s Taeyang
Seungri has joked that G-Dragon was a large influence to Taeyang’s collection of tattoos. We don’t know how true that may be, but we do know that Taeyang’s masterpieces that are exhibited on his body are all of incredibly important meaning and full of detail.
8. Jay Park
Jay Park is definitely familiar in spending time with the ink and needle. He has tattoos located all over his body, and there’s sure to be more in the near future!
9. WINNER’s Seunghoon
While Seunghoon is not the only WINNER member with tattoos, he is the only member with the group’s logo tattooed on his neck!
10. Kim Jaejoong
Another artist who has dedicated a portion of his skin to his group is JYJ’s Jaejoong! His tattoos are a mix of sentiments about music and dedication to his members.
HyunA’s tattoo, which reads “My mother is the heart that keeps me alive,” is incredibly sweet and yet another representation of how beautiful she is inside and out!
12. Teen Top’s C.A.P
The leader of Teen Top is no stranger to getting tattoos! He has tattoos across his chest and has some sleeves in the making.
Two of Hyorin’s most noticeable tattoos are usually seen in her music videos! Her other tattoo that is also widely known is actually her Instagram profile picture!
14. B.A.P’s Bang Yong Guk
It’s hard to miss this beautiful chest piece across Bang Yong Guk’s chest! We can’t imagine how long it took the artist!
15. Nam Taehyun
