HYBE staff did a fantastic job in editing Version 3 of BTS ‘Butter’ Concept Photos. However, it is still puzzling ARMY why HYBE erased Jimin and Jungkook tattoos so randomly in some photos, but not others.
HYBE erased Jimin and Jungkook tattoos in Version 3 of BTS ‘Butter’ Concept Photos
So BH Blurred Jungkook and Jimin’s tattoos ?!?!?— BTS_UPDATES⁷ 🧈🧡 (@BTSupdate_7) June 29, 2021

It is very common for Kpop idols to cover up their tattoos and for agencies to edit tattoos from photos. This is regarding the social rules that happen in South Korea to see tattoos in a negative light.
HYBE has been editing BTS tattoos out of promotional photos for a long time. Like this one of Jungkook for Bon Voyage 4. However, this time HYBE erased Jimin and Jungkook tattoos so randomly and noticeably inconsistent.
As all we know, Jungkook is known for his ARMY tattoo, among other tattoos on his sleeve.
In this Version 3 photo, he is wearing a long sleeve shirt to conceal his arms tattoos. Meanwhile, his hand tattoos are there, but some are erased.
OK BUT CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN WHY THEY EDITED OUT JUNGKOOK’S TATTOOS HERE BUT NOT HERE pic.twitter.com/j5WSAQh3NS— chels⁷ | d-worded bcs of 210613 jk (@honeydoegguk) June 29, 2021
In this close-up, Jungkook hand tattoos appear but not complete. The ARMY tattoo is missing…
…not like the tattoos on Version 1 and 2 ‘Butter’ Photo Concept.
Moreover, in Jungkook’s another Version 3 photo, his hand tattoos are all being erased.
Let’s take a closer look…
Meanwhile, Jimin is well-known for his NEVERMIND tattoo on his right ribcage, and a few tattoos on his arms, including FOREVER and 13.

In Version 3 of the Butter concept photo, ARMY notice that NEVERMIND and Jimin hand tattoos are erased completely.

We all know why HYBE erased Jimin and Jungkook tattoos is probably due to the social rules. However, this theory seems to be very interesting.
Needless to say, coworkers make a big impression on him. He finds himself… gets a few tattoos pic.twitter.com/8h2R9dbD9Z— Jules⁷-my bias wreckers have bias wrecker wreckers (@itsmejulesss) June 29, 2021
Though, the real reason why they did it so randomly is still questionable. So, let’s wait a little longer to find out why.
