Posting close-up shots of new colourful designs, he added a long Thank You note, stating that he is 'thankful' for being able to do a tattoo cover-up for the worldwide group BTS member Jungkook.

The note read, "Thankfully, I was able to do a tattoo cover-up for the worldwide group BTS member Jungkook. Before moving forward with the cover-up, we had plenty of conversations and then carefully looked at the parts that needed to be improved both compositionally a lot of people who come to me put a lot of meaning into the image when getting a tattoo, and Jungkook also went forward filling with tattoos that each had a meaning." Reacting to it, Jungkook wrote, "Thank you, you are the best !!!"
