Jon Gosselin, formerly a star of Jon & Kate Plus 8, is in love and apparently he wants to the world to know it! After meeting 23-year old, Ellen Ross, earlier this year on a blind date, Jon Gosselin admits he is smitten for his new girlfriend. He’s so crazy about her, it seems, that he made a permanent gesture by getting her name tattooed on his back! Keep reading for more details on Jon Gosselin’s massive new ink…

Jon Gosselin, star of Jon & Kate Plus 8, made headlines recently by getting  a major tattoo on his back. Over the past several weeks, he’s had tattoo sessions to get a giant dragon tattoo inked onto his back. He told RadarOnline that the decision to get the tat has been on his mind for awhile and has a greater symbolic meaning. ”I have planned this tattoo for years now,” Jon Gosselin said. “I wanted something that resembled a rebirth or a change in me.”

For the tattoo, which covers most of his back, Jon Gosselin chose a Korean dragon. The artwork is a symbol of a rebirth and the circle of life.“The dragon is all encompassing. It has all parts of the zodiac,” Jon Gosselin says. As for what his eight children think, the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star says, ”they love it and think it’s cool!” Hopefully Jon Gosselin’s new girlfriend, Ellen Ross, thinks it cool too because Jon chose to incorporate her name into the ink. The tattoo features a name written in Korean and Jon Gosselin’s new manager, Canaan Rubin, confirms that it was added to honor Ellen.

Canaan Rubin also speaks out about the significance of the tattoo. “This tattoo for Jon marks this turning point in his life, and symbolizes his time of change, and improvement,” Rubin says. “He has been actively exploring ways to better his life, become a better father, boyfriend, ex-husband, friend, business partner, everything.”
