When Jaejoong was asked about the meaning of this tattoo, he said that it was a memorial for their debut.

It highly seems that Jaejoong had him tattooed after Unforgettable concert in Japan (October, 15-16th, 2011). He has stayed in Japan 1 week for a top-secret mission. It is said to be ““Ohne Glauben Bist Du Tot” “Without faith, you are dead”

    So, it is true, when I heard one saying ‘once you get a tattoo, you will want to get another’. Just remember JJ, do not tattoo a girl name ok *just saying*

    And when you look through at all the tattoo it picturized an arrow pointing at his non existence tushie. Kakakakakakakka…..
    It that to remind your goal to make your tushie sexier in the future to rival JunSu, Jae?

    JJ wrote all his memories onto his body, there’re too many just 27, his body may have no place for tattoos when he goes to 72 !
    Why you put too much burdens onto yourself ? My poor baby ^^

    “Without faith, you are dead.” it’s Jaejoong’s tattoo in the spinal

    […] in his music (literally, bare his soul). He’s allowing himself (and all his meaningful tattoos) to be completely exposed to us. On the other side of that is the Jaejoong wearing the black hood […]

    Thank you, I’ve just been looking for information approximately this subject for a long time and yours is the greatest I have discovered so far. But, what about the bottom line? Are you sure concerning the source?

    Hayzz, I agree he’s making me go against what I’ve said before. I don’t like people who have too much tattoo. Just few is enough.The butterfly on his right collar is not yet included here. Prince JJ can you stop now.PLEASE.!!
