[ENG SUB] GQ KOREA Interview with ONE (정제원)


I got my fi rst tattoo when I just turned 20. I got my fi rst tattoo when I just turned 20. Yep, right after when I turned 20. Actually, I didn’t have any special story behind this. I just liked the perception of tattoos. I just liked the perception of tattoos. The artists who I like have a couple of tattoos It’s the way of expressing themselves I thought about getting tattoos when the time was right, so it just naturally happened for me to get tattoos But it was not like a big decision to get inked But it was not like a big decision to get inked You know, you hear the tattoo machine sound But when the needle punctured my skin, I got the feeling like “I’m actually getting something on my skin.” But when the needle punctured my skin, I got the feeling like “I’m actually getting something on my skin.” But when the needle punctured my skin, I got the feeling like “I’m actually getting something on my skin.” That was my first experience One of the stories that I was getting closer to myself Back then I was insecure about my future or my way When you are around 20, you could get lost But when I got tattoos, it became more clear of what I wanted to do It’s not like I decided what to do very specifically It’s more like abstractly, getting a tattoo was my choice, so my choice or decision crystalised That’s what I felt When I get inked, I go and ask the tattooist like, “Is there anything you wanna ink? Sure, I want something like this Yeah, then, let me get it! I wasn’t sure what kind of designs of tattoos I wanted to get, but with this way it worked for me And more I get tattoos on my skins, I’ve become aware of what tattoo styles would fit me I’ve tried to avoid the designs that are too well painted or too detailed or too famous Instead, I love to have the natural designs mostly I can say I would get a lot of them within a year I don’t really put a big meaning in it Just focusing on the visual designs Ok, if you insist It’s the second tattoo that I got inked As you see, it’s the toughest one among the others I just wanted to get a big one Just a big one Actually, after this one, I would not going to get a tattoo anymore Actually, I was thinking that it would be my last tattoo But right after getting this one It got me thinking what would fit with this so I got more and more tattoos Even in death… Like jewel… Just… Skull I got inked just one person tattoo which is Kurt Cobain I have liked him so much It’s the only person tattoo that I have I might probably not going to get inked the person tattoo anymore This one right here, I wanted to get Superman at first With an abstract idea I was wondering like “What should I get? Superman?” I wanted to get something cartoonish It got me to think of adding Basquiat’s face So, I put the Basquiat’s face on Superman Not much meaning of it It was hard to pick specific colors among many of them, so I came to decide like “Let’s use them all!” So, there are so many colors in it I have just one tattoo that has a meaning in it No, there are two of them I drew this one myself and at that time I went thru difficult time Like the adolescent moment that everyone goes thru It came to me a little late That time, I thought a lot that I wanted to be happy I wanted to put the word ‘HAPPY’ This one is the second tattoo with something meaningful I wrote this one myself I’m easy to get worried about tomorrow So, just wanted to live happily today Yeah, that’s why… I wanted to look like cross shape with ‘T’ I wrote ‘TODAY’ with 20 different styles And picked this one for tattoo I have not many tattoos on the torso area I got this tattoo on the side Actually I don’t really know what it is I’m not sure if it’s devil or warrior or something else I just liked it My most recent tattoo is right here on the back I’m recently into the tattoos look like scribbles The tattooist said it was a horse So I asked “Why did you get me a horse?” He said, “It’s time for you to run.” Ok, then This one is my latest tattoo I’m not sure I’m eligible to give you an advice but I can advise you as I did some experiences on tattoos When I got this star, it was the time I was under the weather So when I see it, it doesn’t bring me a good memory I think these kinds of tattoos are dangerous I’ve faced many limitations as an actor Especially in summer, it was tough because I was not allowed to wear the short sleeves But luckily, the director cared for me I would appreciate it if you keep caring for me When I got this one, I decided not to get one single tattoo any more But it lasted two hours only And then, I happened to think carefully where to get inked It was very painful here I suggest you to be prepare for it I regretted like 300 times I was told the thin people could feel pain more easily I’m thinking of getting tattoos on my torso or thigh in a couple of years
