1st tattoo “NEVERMIND”:
Is it real or fake?
Well, fans initially thought it was fake since, in its very first appearance at mama, it was shown alongside some other cake ones but as time went on and we started getting more and more claims of it from underneath Jimin’s clothes even at most random of times.
The conclusion we reached was that the NEVERMIND tattoo was indeed very real and very permanent. (Almost everyone now agrees that it is not very plausible for it to be simply a semi-permanent one since it’s been way too long of a time and all the reviews have been only accidental on Jimin’s part so far). So yes Jimin, does have a tattoo. And he is the first and only one and BTS to get one until Jungkook.
What does it mean?
The tattoo clearly says Nevermind, but what does this seemingly random word mean to Jimin. Apparently something important as he said to a fan who directly asks him during a fan sign. Since Jimin has not officially confirmed if it is real or not. So the fan is referring to the tattoo as Henna
Fan: Why did you get the Nevermind henna?
Jimin: Ah…because for me…
( A guard interrupts the conversation asking the fan to move on )
Fan: because it means a lot?
Jimin answers by nodding his head yes.
My bet is that Nevermind is important to Jimin because it is a reference to Yoongi’s aka SUGA self-written autobiographical solo titled “Nevermind” present as an intro track in their album which talks about yoongi’s life and how his experience led him to make Nevermind his life motto. In the song, Yoongi even raps the following line Nevermind, even if it’s not easy, and engrave it on your chest. The word used there is equivalent of the English engraving or even more precisely carving and look at the font Jimin choose for the tattoo.
The font choice makes it’s so that the letters don’t simply look like they have been returned there but rather cast into his chest by hand exactly like the song says Jimin expressed his devotion by literally doing what Yoongi said in his lyrics he engraved yoongi’s life motto on his chest. Possibly the wanting it to symbolically show his willingness to make it his own live Moto as well and to leave it from then on?
Yoongi’s motto “never mind” is one board reminder of his choice to not let himself be bothered to bite the head and hardships he will face in his lifetime. For someone as sensitive, and who gets as easily hurt as Jimin it is easy to imagine that Yoongi’s way of seeing things would an incredibly fascinating. A state of mind he himself would like to achieve makes perfect sense really. The word Nevermind is in my opinion both Yoongi’s and Jimin’s motto and is often referenced in a lot of BTS works albeit very subtly. It appears for just a few seconds in the bathroom scenes of the Run MV and on the glass of the phone booth along with other famous mottos, quotes, and ways of sayings. Such as “The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die for a noble cause the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one”. It can be seen for fractions of seconds projected over yoongi’s body during a MAMA VCR along with other important keywords or numbers that define have such as MinPD 930309 (his birth date), Genius lab (the name of his Studio) Agust D (his rap stage name) his name written in Chinese characters and the word addiction (a reference to his character and being addicted to cigarettes in the BTS fictional storyline). It was hidden here and there in the pictures of the HYYH era photoshoots. And more noticeably on Jimin’s jacket that he wore in the Run music video and its following promotions. If you look closely you can also see an arrow with the words “Big love” pointing towards Nevermind a way to express fondness for the word and what it means to him.
“Nevermind even if it’s not easy engrave it on your chest”
2st tattoo “13”:
Fans first saw Jimin’s 13 tattoos when BTS made their annual comeback in V live, just hours before realizing the album Map of the Soul 7 on February 21, 2020.
