K-pop Idols with the Best and Worst Tattoos

I can't imagine coming home with a tattoo and facing my mom in the face, but a lot of the idols apparently have quite the liberal parents. Here's a list of idols with the best tattoos!

4minute's HyunA got a tattoo on the top of her back and left shoulder that reads, "My mother is the heart that keeps me alive." HyunA has a close relationship with her mom and decided to permanently ink the love she has for on her body. Can we get an "aww" please? If I came home with a tatted proclamation of love for my mother, my mom would kill and disown me.
BoA has a tattoo of the letter B on her back. And the "B" stands for big, brash, and bloody unattractive. Two angels are seen poking out of the holes in the letter and it's just not what a girl with a beautiful body should have plastered all over her back.
Jay Park has more tattoos on his body then any K-pop artist in the industry. I'd talk about all of them but I don't have the time nor the page space. One of his sweetest tattoos is located on the back of his right ear that reads "AOM," which is a permanent tribute to his breakdance crew. The other is a tribute to his fans on the top of his back that reads "JWalkerz." Netizens attacked the singer for getting too many tats and Jay's response was brilliant:
"Please don't be too harsh about the fact that I have tattoos. It's a stress reliever for me and telling me not to get tattoos is like asking me not to sing or dance. I express my mind through these kinds of things."
Let the man do what he wants!
Big Bang's G-Dragon has a total of three tattoos but my personal favorite is the one written on the right hand side of his back. It reads, "Too fast to live too young to be," which is a lyric in his song, "The Leaders," featuring Teddy and CL. I love how simple and chic this tattoo is!
Singer Hwangbo went and got the worst tattoo anybody can get-a tattoo of her name splattered across her upper back. The big letters read, "Hwangbo Hye Jung," with a huge flower drawn at the end of it. Here's a question-why does one need to get their name on their body? We know your name and hopefully you do to, so why is this necessary? Hwango's tattoo might be my least favorite of all!
Ballad singer Hwayobi is a woman of great faith and tattooed the quote, "Jesus Loves Me," on her lower back. As a religious gal myself, I'm all for showing your faith, but this tattoo is hideous. The artwork is terrible and it's located in a spot that's often been called the area where a "tramp-stamp" would go.
