BTS' Jimin has debuted a new tattoo that fans noticed during a VLIVE chat on Thursday (March 26).
In the video, Jimin flashes the inside of his left wrist to reveal a small “13” in black ink.
The number marks both Jimin‘s birthday (October 13, 1995) and the date when BTS debuted (June 13, 2013).
Jimin hasn’t confirmed the news himself, so it’s unclear if the tattoo is real or not. However, fans first spotted it on VLIVE on February 21. ARMY members then saw it again during another VLIVE broadcast as well as during a performance on February 27.
Jimin also has a tattoo of the word “Nevermind” on his ribs.

5 Seconds of Summer‘s new album CALM is out now.
The 12-track project includes their previously released songs “Wildflower,” “Easier,” “Teeth,” “No Shame,” and “Old Me.”
“The album title came from the first letters of all of our names,” Luke told the New York Post. “And it’s also a nod to our fans that coined us that name in our early days. They’ve been using that acronym for a long time. It kind of just sums up [that] we’re a little bit older and a little bit wiser . . . But it was named before this went down, obviously.”
“We were gonna go all over the world, do all these kinds of things, and then we just couldn’t,” he added. “But honestly, we wanted the album out really badly. We were waiting a long time for it to come out.”
Luke has also called the album “a journey through a young man’s life, for better or for worse.” Calum adds, “These new songs feel like something we could keep playing for the next 10 years, or even beyond that. It feels like our first album—like we finally found what we’d been trying to achieve since the beginning of this band.”
