  6. omg! i follow the artists on Ig! I LOVE UR TATTOO DESIGN! its so cute and simple <3 i hope I get one done too!

  7. You should go back to blackpink house. They have a pop up store there. Please bring us thereee 😗🖤💖

  8. I went there last month! Didn't get one for myself though, my other friends got a few tattoos. It's a nice chill studio. 😛

  9. oh gosh It was really 100$ for a tattoo that small?? I have one that’s like the size of my palm and it was a 100$ too

  10. Oh my goddd a HUNDRED dollars for this???? I have one about this size in my hand and it cost me like 20 dollars I’m shocked 😂😂😂😂 (and it was rattled by a reputable artist)

  11. Joan, I have a question. I’m thinking of getting a tattoo when I study abroad in South Korea. Do you know if the tattoo artist has some knowledge of English?

  12. Wow thats really expensive . I‘m from Germany and here you pay for this size of tattoo 30€ that’s ~ 35$

  13. At first I thought the price of that tattoo was way too expensive for something that tiny but then I remembered how tattooing outside of cosmetic purposes is illegal and there's likely an added cost for compensation (I dunno a more specific term for it but I hope ya get what I mean) as he is committing a crime. Plus I'm a bit ignorant on tattoo pricing, so yeah.

  14. I'm surprised they didn't bandage your tattoo up. When my sister got her's (also simple line work tattoo). They told her to keep it bandaged for 48hours to keep it moist and to help avoid scabbing.

  15. Can anyone give me the location of black pink house cuz I will travel to Korea next month so I might get the chance to go to see their house 💕

  16. I’m so disappointed , I flew over to Korea to get a tattoo done here , despite it was expensive , I thought it was worth it but the tattoo didn’t turned out nice , it was so hard to communicate because he couldn’t understand English. I even printed the tattoo I wanted but it turned out so differently ! 🙁

  17. 100 usd for a small tattoo? I'm planning to have one too, but the price….
    also, not covered when it's newly done? (idk much abt tattoos)

  18. omg im actually going hongdae playground when i got korea in december! after seeing your video im even more excited now

  19. I just got my tattoo by Playground Tattoo 5 days ago too and its starting to scab. Care to share your tat's healing process?

  20. Can someone tell me the KakaoTalk for playground tattoo? I added the Instagram but you can only contact via KakaoTalk
