11. Highlight’s Junhyung’s tattoos
Aside from Hyuna, Junhyung also has a tattoo as a tribute to his parents. The tattoo on his chest reads, “Born again still your son.” He thanks his parents for every opportunity possible that has come to him before, today, and in the future. His other tattoo reads “Carpe Diem, Quam minimum credula poster,” meaning “Seize the day, put minimal trust in tomorrow.” This teaches us to put our all every day no matter what we are doing because tomorrow we might not do the same thing or feel the same way. This brings us to his life-motto tattoo that says, “If I would die tomorrow, I would never regret it.”

This applies to Jisoo from BLACKPINK. She has 3 piercings on her left ear and 5 on her right ear. Her piercings surprised many fans. In total, she has 8 piercings on both of her ears.

We find him particularly good looking with all of those piercings. Combined with his dazzling black hair, his metallic colored piercings stand out. To his general appearance, the black ones add manhood.
JB surprised his fans one day by appearing with two lip piercings. Fans said he had gone crazier with his piercings and done something different with his lower lip, but then, with no mark on his lower lip, he took them off in front of his fans. So those were, clearly, fakes. Even though some of us wished they were true, deep down, because he got even better! He stated via V-App that he wanted to pierce his nose and eyebrow bar, but we don’t know whether or not he will do that.

10. GFriend’s Eunha’s piercings
