GOT7 is a seven-member K-pop group that made their debut in 2014. Aside from Mark and BamBam, the group consists of Jay B, Jackson, Jinyoung, Youngjae, and Yugyeom. The group is known for their songs “You Calling My Name,” “Lullaby,” “If You Do,” “Page,” and many more.
Many fans of the group were happy to see that the two members got matching tattoos to celebrate their friendship and bond. However, some ARMY or fans of another popular K-pop group BTS, apparently claimed that the two copied BTS’ friendship tattoos.

The members of BTS have similar “7” tattoos. The members of the group have the tattoo on their body as a symbol of the commitment and friendship they have, according to an article.
Fans and other online users on Twitter quickly came to defend GOT7, saying that there is nothing wrong that the two members got matching and similar tattoos. Many users pointed out that the number seven has a lot of connections to the group.
them saying got7 are copying another group just bc mark and bambam got a 7 tattoo is very stupid like got7 is the group who have 7 in their name, have an album 7 for 7, jackson come up with 7 or nothing and they went through a lot to own their brand together as 7

GOT7 has all the right to have this tattoo. Honestly speaking, they’re more entitled to use number “7” as it is their name and the fandom as a whole – GOT7 and IGOT7. That number is not only because they’re 7 members. Only GOT7 and Ahgases will understand how important is “7”. https://t.co/PKbJbQ2PLy
