Tattoos are commonplace among Korean artists like Yugyeom. He is well-known for having two tattoos on his upper body. It’s a dandelion flower on his right side. Yugyeom appears to be a big fan of dandelions since he has a dandelion image on his Twitter profile and home photo.
Writing on his left side reads, “I’m not like that.” When questioned why he picked those words, he stated that he would not behave or act the same way as other individuals. Because he has tattoos on both sides, he prefers to wear clothing that reveals both sides.
There was speculation last March 2019 that Yugyeom had gotten another tattoo. Fans observed something dark on his shoulders beneath his white t-shirt while he presented a radio station. When he stood up and displayed his back, fans could see a large tattoo on his back, which some mistook for wings.
Yugyeom stunned fans on tour by showing them his new tattoo. They were right about his wings to tattoo on his back. It’s a tattoo of a cross with wings. Not only that, but he also got another “Trust Me” tattoo on his left shoulder. He chose those phrases because he wished to convey them to his family and supporters.
