Tattoos may be skin deep, but they often have a deeper meaning that doesn’t quite meet the eye. With his fair share of ink, Big Bang’s leader G-Dragon’s is a certified badass; however, the tattoos also reveal a side to the singer that the cameras don’t often catch.

Famed-tattoo artist JP Prodigy was interviewed for a segment on the March 5 episode of Mnet’s Wide Entertainment News, where he delved into the meaning behind each of the singer’s tattoos.

A Closer Look at G-Dragon’s Tattoos

JP Prodigy explained that the words “Kill” and “Fame” tattooed on G-Dragon’s fingers suggest the singer’s desire to live a normal lifestyle because the famous idol star has lived most of his life in the limelight.

Script tattoos often signify an important date, name or belief in one’s life, and the singer once explained in that he got the line “Too fast to live too young to die,” from 1986 film Sid and Nancy, tattooed across his back when he was going through a rough patch, saying “It was a time when I had a complicated mind. These words caught my eye.”

The Italian phrase “vita dolce” and word “moderato” tattooed across each of G-Dragon’s forearms translate into “the sweet life” and “moderate,” and JP Prodigy explained that they, once again, reflect G-Dragon’s inclination for normalcy.
