Kpop Idols with Tattoos (Male Edition)
Okay, so here we are again but this time it's tattoos! The forbidden taboo* of all time for S.Koreans! But as we progress through the years, the newer generations are becoming more accepting towards tattoos now than ever before. Even more so, IDOLS**, are willing to show their tattoos! Not publicly or in mvs of course. But, who can blame them! Tattoos are still a taboo, just more acceptable. Since I don't know a lot of idols with tattoos, I will be naming 14 idols with tattoos that I do know of that has tattoos. Idols have their private life too but these tattoos were shown to the world accidentally if not purposefully. Most of the idols I will be showing have shown their tattoos on purpose. _____________☆~♡☆~♡☆~♡☆_____________ * Taboo - a social or religious custom prohibiting or forbidding discussion of a particular practice or forbidding association with a particular person, place, or thing. ** Note, I will add Jay Park. Even though he is not an "idol" per say, he was one. Now he's a successful Khip-hop artist and co-ceo of AOMG. ~☆~♡☆~NOTICE~♡☆~♡~ I am numbering the idols but I am not numbering them due to anything. I am solely doing this to make it easier to follow along with. I also putted down the meaning behind their tattoos or what their tattoos say. But I didn't put down every tattoo they have on their body. Also, there are some idol (Lim Hyunsik and CAP)'s tattoos that I couldn't find the meanings to. #1 - JAY PARK One of the most well-known "idol" to have tattoos. He also has the most tattoos out of every male Kpop/hip hop person in the industry. We currently don't actually know how much tattoos he has because he said he is too lazy to count all his tattoos. Also, said getting tattoos is his stress reliever. Meaning behind tattoos and/or what they say: His tattoos all stand for his music, family, crew, and his morals. #2 - CAP (TEEN TOP) Okay, this one. CAP is my bias in Teen Top but I don't understand how he gets so much hate!!! I love him to death! So what if he has tattoos! It's his body not yours. If he wants to get tatted up, he can. This boy (man) is gorgeous with and without tattoos! K-netizens*, shut it and sit down please! Read article here on what netizens thought about Teen Top's leader CAP's tattoos. Meaning behind tattoos and/or what they say: ??? _____________☆~♡☆~♡☆~♡☆_____________ * Netizens - a user of the Internet, especially a habitual or avid one. #3 - GD (BIGBANG) I swear to god this boy has some weird tats. I love him but lol. Hey, it's his body and I can respect that at least. He is still one sexy beast Meaning behind tattoos and/or what they say: vita dolce and moderato, "vita dolce" means beautiful and sweet life, and "moderato", which means moderate tempo in Italian. (both forearms) #4 - Jaejoong (JYJ) I was quite surprised at this one. I knew he had tattoos on the front side (chest) but I did not know about his back! I can already imagine how much it must've hurt! Especially the tattoo along his spine! Omo, if I did that I probably would've passed out lol Meaning behind tattoos and/or what they say: (upper back) "The pleasure of the mighty are the tears of the poor" "Hope to the end" "A song will outlive all sermons in the memory" #5 - Zico (BLOCK B) This poor baby has a tattoo of his mama on his chest! OMFG! Love it! He also has his baptized name tatted up, along with Block B's first win and others. Meaning behind tattoos and/or what they say: "JOHN THE APOSTLE" (middle chest to the right) Portrait of his mom when she was younger (left chest) #6 - Bang Yongguk (BAP) Bruhhhhh!

Since their comeback I wanted him to wear a wife beater lol He's gotta show that damn chest tattoo! 오빠! 방용국씨, 나 보고 싶다 너의 가슴 문신! 방용국 오빠 과 비에이피 화이팅! 사랑해요!! Meaning behind tattoos and/or what they say: "Do what u like and luv What u do" (left shoulder blade) "Make Art Not War" (right forearm) #7 - Taeyang (BIGBANG) His tattoos are his representation of his religion. Even though I am Shaman*, I love how he can express his feelings through tattoos. Meaning behind tattoos and/or what they say: Jesus' death and resurrection is tattooed across his back (upper back) _____________☆~♡☆~♡☆~♡☆_____________ * Shaman - a person regarded as having access to, and influence in, the world of good and evil spirits, especially among some peoples of northern Asia and North America. Typically such people enter a trance state during a ritual, and practice divination and healing. (technically, I am not a shaman but my people believe in the works of a Shaman so we call our "religion" Shaman) #8 - Lee Hongki (FTISLAND) I only found out he had these tattoos through SNS of course. And Allkpop and Koreaboo. Meaning behind tattoos and/or what they say: "Freedom" (back of both arms) 2 Skeletons (both forearms) 2 keys (right shoulder) #9 - Junhyung (BEAST) All I can say is that his tattoos have meaning to me. I love them... maybe I should get one lol Meaning behind tattoos and/or what they say: "seize the day, put no trust in tomorrow" in Latin (right forearm) "If I die tomorrow I would never regret" (upper left arm) "born again still your son" (right chest) #10 - Taeil (BLOCK B) Bad boy, cutely short and vocally amazing! Gah! I don't even care about his tattoos because I'm in love with his voice lol Meaning behind tattoos and/or what they say: "777" because 7 is a symbol of good fortune (wrist) 2 Dice, MVP and LUCKY (left forearm) #11 - Changsub (BTOB) Okay, this one I think it might've been accidental.

Meaning behind tattoos and/or what they say: "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God." (Isaiah 41:10) (right forearm) "Don't Be Defeated From Yourself" (back) #12 - Ilhoon (BTOB) Bruhhhhh, that tattoo across his chest is deep! Meaning behind tattoos and/or what they say: "No one can be like God" (chest) #13 - Tae Hyun (WINNER) I don't know much about WINNER but when Tae Hyun came up on the search engine (when I was looking for idols with tattoos) I just had to see what it looked like. Can't believe he has a tattoo still lol Meaning behind tattoos and/or what they say: Tattoo on his arm is the name of the artist Bat (right arm) A banana and "STAY GOLD" ( left wrist) #14 - Lim Hyunsik (BTOB) Lots of people are still debating if that's a real tattoo or not because it hasn't been shown lately. Also, you can't see his tattoo unless he's bending down or has a low cut shirt. Meaning behind tattoos and/or what they say: ??? EXTRA: Former EXO-M member and leader Kris (Wu YiFan) I still can't believe they tried to cover up his tattoo up with makeup... Smh. Meaning behind tattoos and/or what they say: The design is a tribal tattoo that represents valiance and protection (left shoulder) Me, personally, I don't find tattoos offensive. I like them. I find that men with tattoos are attractive. I also think women with tattoos are gorgeous! It doesn't matter what you physically look like, as long as you love yourself and your body you're beautiful. As long as we can respect their privacy and show them love, they are still the same idol with or without tattoos. _____________☆~♡☆~♡☆~♡☆_____________ RESPECT, LOVE, GIVE & RECEIVE. I hope you guys liked this card. If I missed any male Kpop idols by chance please let me know in the comments below! 여러분!!! 화이팅!!! 사랑해요!!!
PSA What does your blood type mean?
For those who haven’t noticed, Koreans tend to stereotype individual personalities through blood types. Of course, none of these are scientifically proven so they shouldn’t be taken literally. It’s the same as trying to predict the future through astrological signs or tarot readings—it’s all just for fun. But you’ll be surprised with how accurate some of these characteristics can be. Here’s a basic breakdown of how Koreans view each blood type along with some celebrities who belong under each category. BLOOD TYPE A  People with type A blood are known to be more conservative and introverted than the others, often finding difficulty in expressing emotions or trusting others. They’re extremely patient, considerate, and reserved, but also highly creative and perfectionists, often giving people the impression as being stubborn, tense, and uptight. Men with type A blood are said to be the friendly natured ones with good personalities. They’re very punctual, always expecting the best results in everything they do, but are also very sensitive and willing to give up everything they have for those they love. Due to their sensitive natures, they’re very fragile-hearted and often get hurt easily. The women, however, tend to be very greedy and have a hard time finding satisfaction easily. They’re strong prides often lead them to act emotionless. However, they’re very loyal and caring, which often results to extreme jealousy or emotional damage upon feeling betrayed. They prefer living according to schedule, are intimidated by spontaneity, and feel distress in sudden environmental changes.  ***Best match: Type O  BLOOD TYPE B  People with type B blood are said to be the passionate, wild, and creative ones of the four. They’re independent, but also very passionate about the people and things they love. They tend to think outside the box and live very liberal lifestyles rather than limiting themselves to one environment. However, they can also get impatient and give up easily, often coming off as being lazy, self-centered, shallow, and irresponsible. Men with type B blood have a negative reputation for their strong prides and self-centered personalities. They hate those who underestimate their abilities or fail to give them the attention they want. However, they’re very smart and popular due to their sense of humor, fall in love easily but lose interest just as fast, and tend to act before they think. They’re good liars, and often get annoyed when asked to do something.  The women, not much different from the men, hate being controlled by rules and tend to speak their minds, regardless of what the other person might feel, but can also get affected by their own emotions easily, resulting in constant mood swings. They tend to get bored and lose interest quickly, making spontaneity a vital factor in their everyday lives—this also makes it difficult to maintain long-term relationships. They hate attachment or being confined to one area, and while they’re not the easiest to anger, they can get extremely stoic and have difficulty finding peace. ***Best match: Type AB BLOOD TYPE O  People with type O blood are outgoing, energetic, optimistic, and known to be natural leaders. They like speaking their minds while maintaining a friendly attitude, and possess high self-confidence which leads them to be highly ambitious and obsessed with success. They convince themselves that they’re winners and hate losing. They also tend to be dramatic, arrogant, insensitive, and ruthless, but are known to have the best personalities out of the four blood types. They often tend to tire themselves out due to their need to take care of everyone around them. Men with blood type O are extremely sensitive, emotional, and tend to trust easily. They’re very aware and critical of their surroundings and enjoy participating in group activities, which emphasizes the active and leadership skills they posses. They often hide their feelings and find it difficult to express them due to fear of rejection.  The women, however, are very active and nice, but also extremely bold and unexpected. They lose control of their stress easily and end up getting hurt or experience loneliness more often than others. However, they’re extremely caring and patient and usually treat others’ problems as if they were their own. They might look strong on the outside, but they’re very weak and fragile and prefer being in a small group rather than big ones. ***Best match : Type A BLOOD TYPE AB  People with blood type AB are known to be either the genius or the psycho ones of the group. While they might look active on the outside, they can be very sensitive and shy, but also extremely loud and strong. They’re rational thinkers with strong concentration skills and are more controlled by their heads rather than their hearts. They can also be shy and aloof, indecisive, and sometimes distance themselves from others, leading some people to think of them as two-faced, untrustworthy, and unpredictable. Men with type AB blood can often come across as cold and distant on first meetings. However, they’re more caring than most people and are always the first ones to forgive. They give up on things easily, often jumping around from one activity to the next, and adjust to new environments extremely quickly. Because they’re extremely shy people, they tend to hide their feelings and often come across as emotionally detached. People usually don’t associate them with trustworthy characteristics at first, but find that they’re very honest and romantic with those they’re most comfortable with. Women with type AB blood are often two-faced—they’re very curious about other peoples’ businesses, but hate disclosing any of their own and usually like being left alone. They can be extremely caring and considerate at times, but also very selfish, impatient, and suspicious of other people. They’re more free and unaffected by their surroundings than reserved, and while they might not look like it, they’re extremely vulnerable to their feelings. ***Best match: Type AB  What's your blood type?

What's your style? Find the perfect man with this K-guy style guide - part 1
1. Cute Style Of course Yoonie and Kang Min Hyuk are hot, but they're just so good at being cute! Everything from their eye smiles to their facial expressions screams "cute!" So if you prefer guys with similar adorable qualities over everything else, then you've found your guy style! 2. Eccentric Style Maybe Jang Keun Suk and Lee Hong Ki aren't the hottest, or most handsome guys in the world (super hot to me!) but they've got personality! Their personal style is out of this world and their minds are too. So if you tend to go for the dudes who possibly live in a kaleidoscope then you're all about the "eccentric style." 3. Guy Next Door Style Guys like Song Joong Ki and Lee Seung Gi represent the kind of guy who is handsome, and hot, but not intimidating to be around. They're the down to earth types you can easily bring home to meet the parentals. 4. Under Weight Model Style Like Lee Jong Suk and No Min Woo, these guys are tall with runway model looks. This involves good looking faces mixed with a lack of body fat. If you like guys with long legs who are thinner than you, and think this is a perfect male body type, well then this is your style! 5. Dongsaeng (younger) Style CNU of B1A4 and Jongup of B.A.P are guys in their early 20's who not only look good physically, but have a trendy fashion style. Some people just like younger guys because, well, they look good and for otherrr reasons. If you're one who tends to always gravitate towards the younger ones, well then you're a "Dongsaeng Killer" and this is your style. No judgement here, embrace that cradle, but not before you're sure it's of legal age! 6. Sexy and Mysterious Style Kim Jae Wook and Choi Jin Hyuk are perfect examples of this style! When you first see them you're all like yeah he's hot but wait, why is he looking at me like he's gonna stab me?! Then you find yourself being attracted to not knowing if this guy is a good guy or a bad guy. If you're all about dating guys with suspect looks, well then sexy and mysterious is your style! 7. Older and Refined Style Kim Joo Hyuk and Bae Yong Jun represent the handsome, well established older man. He's got it all together, is charming, successful and only gets better looking with age. If you're all about stability and maybe a real conversation with substance, then this is the style for you! 8. Pretty Boy Style Jaejoong and Nu'est's Ren represent the "pretty boy." These are the guys who posses looks that put most girls to shame. They are, in most cases, prettier than girls, and may even enjoy a lot of the same things as girls, such as Hello Kitty. They are confident, and comfortable with their sexuality, and usually don't need to be told they're attractive because they already know this. Obsessed with facial features? Cool with dating guys prettier than you? Well then these guys just might be your style! 9. Flower Boy/Perfect 10 Style Kim Soo Hyun and Lee Min Ho represent the guys who were just born with perfect genes. They're tall, not too thin, not overly muscular, have facial features that register "attractive" whether or not you're physically attracted to them. They represent the men suits were made for. If you're all about the clean cut, well put together types, then this is the style for you. +1 10. Gym Rat Style Rain and Taecyeon represent all the guys who make fitness a major part of their life. They have chocolate abs, great back lines and amazing arms. Their faces may not be absolutely to die for by industry standards (or your standards), but who's really looking at it anyway when they've got bodies like that!? This is your style if a great body trumps the rest!
K-Idols with tattoos pt. 1
So I know in South Korea tattoos are still somewhat taboo and a very sensitive subject but as a girl with tattoos this is a topic I'm very passionate about. As I stated I have 3 tattoos so obviously I'm all for them. I don't like how they have such a bad stigma because now a days they're a form of expression and they're art. They're a form of strength, encouragement, reminders and memorials. So I kinda wanted to do a card all about k-idols (the ones I could find anyway) who went against the grain and got tattoos despite the way they're viewed. #1 Winner's Mino Meaning: "then the LORD your God will restore your fortunes and have compassion on you and gather you again from all the nations where he scattered you." I don't know the meaning of the one on his back. #2 Topp Dogg's Jenissi. Meaning: Left arm says Stop And Play and his right arm says Let Me Hit That (xD oh Jenissi) #3 Jay Park Meaning: Music, family, crew and his morals. #4 Teen Top's CAP #5 BigBang's GD Meaning: Vita Dolce means beautiful and sweet life, Moderato is a musical term meaning moderate tempo in Italian. The one on his shoulder is from one of his songs the others are unknown. #6 JYJ's JaeJoong Meaning: upper back means "The pleasure of the mighty are the tears of the poor", "hope to the end" and "a song will outlive all sermons in the memory". #7 Block B's Zico Meaning: right side of chest "John the apostle" and a portrait of his mom when she was younger on the right side of his chest #8 BAP's Bang Yongguk Meaning: left shoulder "Do what you like and luv what you do" forearm "make art not war" #9 BigBang's Taeyang Meaning: His faith, Jesus' death and resurrection across his back and a cross along his side. #10 FTISLAND's Lee Hongki Meaning: back of arms freedom, forearms skeletons and keys on shoulder. #11 Beast's Junhyung Meaning: "seize the day, put no trust in tomorrow" right forearm, "if I die tomorrow I would never regret" upper left arm and "born again still your son" right chest #12 Block B's Taeil Meaning: "777" symbols good fortune, 2 dice, MVP and LUCKY #13 BTOB's Changsub Meaning: "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God." (Isaiah 41:10) "Do not be defeated from yourself" #14 BTOB's Ilhoon Meaning: "No one can be like God" #15 WINNER's Tae Hyun Meaning: tattoo on his right arm is the name of the artist, bat, a banana and STAY GOLD. #16 BTOB's Lim Hyunsik #17 Brown Eyed Girls Miryo #18 SISTAR's Hyorin #19 BoA
