Perhaps some people already know that iKON’s B.I has three tattoos on his body. They are on his hips, back, and left chest. But, do you guys know the meaning of his tattoo? I bet you don’t, so here are the meanings of every tattoo of iKON’s B.I!
1. The Balloon and Paper Plane Tattoo on His Back
The picture of balloons and a paper plane on his back is connected with his dream to become a successful artist. The airplane is his dream and the balloons are his hard work and his determination that keeps on raising him up higher to reach his dreams. Some said the balloons describe other members in iKON, too. Without them, he couldn’t reach his dream; he couldn’t reach it alone. Also, some say the members are the pillar to keep him stable to reach his dream.
2. Nihilism Tattoo on His Left Chest
No one knows why he has this tattoo, but Nihilism itself means “the belief that all values are baseless and that nothing can be known or communicated. It is often associated with extreme pessimism and a radical skepticism that condemns existence.”
3. Like Father like son, Like Master like man, For the kingdom of heaven
This is his newest tattoo that is scraped right above his pelvic bones. Like father, like son means that in the end, all kids, certainly, resemble their parents. For “Like master, like man”, ‘man’ means ‘servant’, or frankly saying, it means ‘slave’. So, if the ‘master’ is a good person, then the ‘servant’ is a good slave and vice versa.
Well, this tattoo was made for his father and proves that he still loves and supports his father as well.
The Scandal of iKON’s B.I’s Father
In 2014, the Korean music industry shook with the news coming from B.I’s father. Korean media reported that B.I’s father, Kim Jung Joo, former president of Seunghwa Pretech, was being detained and investigated for allegedly spreading false information about his company and embezzling money.
According to the prosecution, he posted false stock prices when he acquired the company in February 2013. He also raised capital of 18.1 billion won (about 17 million dollars) by posting false stock prices from June 2014 to August 2014. He is currently under suspicion of embezzling 2.4 billion won(about 2.2 million dollars).
Some say that B.I has nothing to do with the embezzlement. However, others insist that B.I should not debut as a singer because B.I’s father had a great effect on B.I’s exclusive contract with YG Entertainment. Do you remember that B.I was featured as a rapper in MC Mong’s former hit “Indian Boy” in 2009? Actually, B.I’s father was acquainted with MC Mong, and he showed B.I’s video to the singer. After that, B.I obtained the opportunity to perform with MC Mong and enter a contract with YG.
