Some BTS fans think Jungkook has a tattoo sleeve

With the tattoo rumors, ARMY also expressed their support for Jungkook doing what makes him happy.
“I don’t know if Jungkook got tattoos or not, I’m just so incredibly happy he’s doing this HE wants to do. Awhile back he wouldn’t in fear of offending army, so this is just the best thing to me. Grow that hair, get those tats babe. DO YOU #BTSinRiadh,” wrote a Twitter user.
“reminder to all the ‘armys’ out there. we’re all just fans. bts can do whatever they like. they can date, they can have tattoos, they can grow their beard & hair, they can hug their female friends. its not our business, our only business is to support and love them all equally,” a fan tweeted.
