20 BTS Tattoo Ideas For ARMYs Who Need Inspiration
The ARMY has a variety of ways to express their appreciation for BTS. Retweeting BTS' posts and streaming their music is part of fans' everyday routines, but there are a handful of ARMYs that go the extra mile by creating fan art, edits, dance covers, and more. Not to mention, there's also fans who get BTS-inspired tattoos to forever mark their love for BTS on their skin. If you're looking to do the same, but need some inspiration before taking the plunge, here are 20 BTS tattoo ideas from ARMYs all over the world.
BTS and their ARMY truly have a special bond that's unbreakable. To show much they care about each other, they use the phrase "I purple you." The saying was dubbed by V, who explained it means "I will trust and love you for a long time." BTS often uses the phrase during their concerts, as well as whenever they win an award and want to show their thanks to ARMYs.
While words can go a long way, tattoos can also be used to symbolize fans' love for BTS. BTS certainly doesn't expect fans to go out and get tattoos to show their love for the band (just supporting them whole heartedly is enough), but if a BTS-inspired tattoo has been on your mind, you'll want to take into consideration what image or words you want inked. To help you on your search, here are some BTS-inspired designs to give you inspiration.
1. "Love Yourself"
BTS addresses themes of self love through their Love Yourself album trilogy and, for that reason, the words "love yourself" have become one of the group's most well-known lines. Getting this phrase inked on your body will serve as a daily reminder not only of your appreciation for BTS, but for yourself as well.
Seven is a very important number in the BTS fandom. It represents BTS' seven members, and it's the name of their Map of the Soul: 7 album. If you're looking for a simpler design, "7" is the way to go.
3. "Save Me/I'm Fine"
4. "Speak Yourself"
"Speak Yourself" is another one of BTS' mantras RM coined in his September 2018 speech at the United Nations addressing themes of self love and identity.
5. BTS & ARMY Logos
6. BT21 Characters
7. "Hope World"
If J-Hope is your bias, "Hope World" will brighten your day because it will remind you of J-Hope, aka, BTS' "ray of sunshine."
8. "I Purple You"
Since only BTS and ARMY know about the phrase, getting "I Purple You (보라해)" will be your secret only other dedicated fans will understand. In case you want something more subtle that still alludes to the phrase, a simple purple heart is another option.

Finally, the most obvious way to show your appreciation for BTS is by getting their name tattooed. Since they have different titles like "BTS," "Bangtan," and "Bangtan Sonyeondan," there's a variety of options to choose from.
The love between BTS and ARMY is so pure and wholesome. They care about each other so much that Jungkook has an "ARMY" tattoo and fans have designs inspired by the guys as well. If you're looking to join the club, hopefully these tats gave you some inspiration to get one with your own personal twist.
