The purple heart has a unique meaning in the world of BTS. The purple heart on Jungkook’s hand is enough reason for the fans to get a matching purple tattoo. “I Purple You” is coined by KimTaehyung to express their love for the BTS Army. They replaced the word ‘love’ with ‘purple’ and described that purple is the last color of the rainbow, giving it a meaning of long-lasting love.

The delicate and ethereal BTS lyric tattoo features the text “Serendipity” in honor of Jimin’s solo song. Like most other BTS songs, this one is also based on their experience. Even though the song features Jimin, the song is about Namjoon’s love and feelings. The song talks about rare and special things in life and is gender-neutral, making it one of the popular BTS concert tattoos for men and women.

BTS has captured the hearts of millions in the global community, thanks to its amazing lyrics and stunning visuals. Fans connect with their lyrics and are not hesitant to commit to their values. They show this in the form of inking their skin with lyrics, dates, logos, and tattoos similar to BTS members. The BTS 7 tattoo is the most popular one as all the members are inked with this one. However, creative minds have come up with many other beautiful designs that range from minimalistic to bold, colorful ones. If you feel inspired by any of our designs, don’t forget to add your personal element to it so that the final look is truly yours!
