During the New Jersey leg of South Korean boyband Big Bang's US tour, the boys wasted no time getting the best out of it. And the best they got.

But this isn't the first time Taeyang went under the machine in the hands of Anil Gupta. A couple years ago, his pride and joy—the tattoo of Christ on his back—was also made by Gupta.

The rest of the boys sport some ink of their own too. I think I should mention that there are quite a lot of excellent tattoo artists in South Korea. Some of them operate illegally though, since tattooing is seen as a medical profession by the law in SK rather than an artistic career.

It was no chill out session, though. With the boy group's hectic schedule, the tattoo artist was merely given two days with barely a break to work on Taeyang and G-Dragon's pieces. Nonetheless, it was a good couple of days for both Gupta and the Big Bang boys.

“Working on GD and Tae was a lot of fun,” says Gupta. ”I did two consecutive days (with zero sleep). Their respectful and jovial behavior made this otherwise cumbersome and tedious task easy for me.”

Both Big Bang and Anil Gupta have not released any clear photos of the actual tattoos the boys got but some fans got creative and got a peek of Taeyang's new chest piece. We're definitely seeing fine snakes in black and grey!

It was a short encounter, but we doubt it's going to be the last! Kudos to Big Bang! Another point for celebrities with good tattoos!
