Hyorin shared the story behind her tattoo. 

On the August 9 airing of tvN's 'Life Bar', Hyorin explained the special reason behind her stomach tattoo. 

She said, "I have a tattoo on my belly. I got it because of the scars from my two surgeries. The scar was a huge stress factor to me." Hyorin revealed, "I was born with ascites, and put on an incubator immediately after birth. I was diagnosed with pediatric cancer (biliary atresia to be exact)."

Hyorin continued, "I successfully completed the surgery and I received another one a year later. I thought about covering up the scar with a tattoo so I got a cross tattoo over it."

She also shared, "Parents who have kids suffering from biliary atresia send mail to me."
