"I have planned this tattoo for years now. I wanted something that resembled a rebirth or a change in me," the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 patriarch told RadarOnline in a Monday report, adding he chose a Korean dragon because it symbolizes rebirth and the circle of life.
"The dragon is all encompassing. It has all parts of the zodiac."
Jon endured a six-hour session three weeks ago at Never Say Die Tattoo in Harrisburg, PA before returning to the parlor last week for another eight-hour sitting, according to RadarOnline, which added the ink is still a work in progress.
"This was the perfect timing for me," he told RadarOnline about the tattoo.
