Jungkook’s forearm bears a giant image of an eye. It’s thought to be a woman’s eye. As a result, many speculate that this is a picture of his mother’s or girlfriend’s eye. If we analyze the whole significance of such a design, it offers protection and assistance in making sound decisions.
12. The Tiger Lily
Jungkook also has two quotes tattooed on his forearm. They are meant to be his life mottos: “Make hay while the sun shines,” which suggests you should seize the opportunity to do something while the conditions are favorable. “Rather be dead than cool,” is his life slogan and the lyrics to Nirvana’s Stay Away. It’s also the title of a song by Forever Came Calling, an American pop-punk band.
14. Three striations
The three stripes on Jungkook’s arm are thought to be from the Korean national flag, known as the “Taegeuk flag.” It is associated with the East, the Sky, and the Spring. This trigram is one of four with varied symbology that depicts harmony, balance, and mobility as fundamental life values. This Jungkook tattoo symbolizes his love and dedication to his hometown and his enthusiasm for its traditional traditions.
Many people call this tattoo the “closed door,” but it has two meanings and represents both the door and the BTS emblem. As a result, this image combines Jungkook’s professional and personal lives. A design like this also represents a person’s desire for personal space, capacity to maintain secrets, and deep and creative character.
Only true fans understand the significance of this design. The letters “0613” stand for June 13, the day BTS debuted. This tattoo is an excellent illustration of how you may acquire a meaningful design with a near and relevant date. This will allow you to remember all the joy and happiness you had when viewing this design.
Fans have several theories concerning the meaning of this tattoo. But the primary point is always the same: this heart tattoo represents love and affection. However, in a broader sense, it might imply unhappy love, betrayal of people, and fear of being duped. Of course, we hope this Jungkook tattoo has only positive connotations and is related to something enjoyable.
18. Three “+”
When it comes to hand tattoos, he was first seen with them at the airport on September 19, 2019. And he had this one even back then. The most common assumption regarding the meaning of three “+” is that it represents BTS and ARMY forever. Furthermore, it adds a few additional fascinating features to the overall composition.
This crown tattoo signifies that the ARMY is vital to BTS and that they are kings. A crown tattoo can represent monarchy, respect for ones own self and others, the ability to make balanced and wise decisions and justice. So, by getting such a tattoo, he may have wanted to express his love for the ARMY while also including more profound implications in this artwork.
His finger tattoo of J is believed to be standing for his name, but only he would know the truth.
The metal chain behind the mic tattoo, is a part 0f his sleeve. It still needs to be confirmed by him whether it’s symbolic or just a gap filler.
