What do you think of their new ink?
GOT7‘s BamBam and Mark recently debuted new tattoos but have gotten mixed reactions from netizens over the design and meaning.
GOT7’s members are just some of the many K-Pop idols with tattoos, with five of the seven members having some ink on their bodies.
Mark and BamBam are the two members that seem to enjoy getting designs on their bodies, often sharing with fans their different ideas.
Recently, Mark and BamBam revealed their latest tattoos in a series of Instagram posts. In the first photo shared by BamBam, the two are facing backward, with their newest ink, the number “7,” displayed on their shoulder blades.
Mark also shared photos of their tattoos and an individual shot with the caption, “Who’s next?”
Fans immediately loved the tattoos as a new way for the group to show their bond.

After fans shared the images online, some netizens were not fans of the idea.
Last year, it was revealed that each member of BTS got friendship tattoos of the number “7” in different places on their bodies. Some think that GOT7’s tattoos are too closely related to the ones the BTS members have, saying that the “7” holds a special meaning for the group.
y’all don’t got no originality 😭😭😭😭😭 https://t.co/khjpVOKtBK pic.twitter.com/QxXulYeLUs

This isn’t about us gatekeeping a number it’s about the meaning of the tannies tattoos and it’s honestly annoying like they couldn’t think of literally anything else to get tattooed ??? No originality https://t.co/yD52PO8txM

Others state that it is a number, and GOT7 also has seven members in the group, so it makes sense they would get it tattooed.
they literally have seven in their group name, what else were they meant to get tatted, a 20? 😭 https://t.co/AcV19VPovv

Wdym. They literally have the number 7 in their band name. Again – our husbands couldn’t care less. They would happily encourage because they know that the 7 is as important for GOT7 as it is for Bangtan.

Some even reference that Jungkook, Mark, and Yugyeom share the same “truth” tattoo on their inner arms, and Yugyeom, Jungkook, and BamBam have 97-line tattoos. The groups have also maintained friendships with each over the years.
jungkook is literally best friend with the 97 liners of got7 they’re laughing at those of you who said that the 7 is reserved for bts only get your shit together and touch some grass please https://t.co/Het9bKMyry

GOT7 previously had friendship necklaces made in 2017, when the slogan “seven or never” was popularized for the group due to some members not feeling comfortable with tattoos at the time.
