Jon Gosselin is ready for a fresh start, and he’s preparing for it with some fresh ink — in the form of a huge dragon on his back.

The former reality TV star and father of eight says he has planned the tattoo for years, and picked a Korean dragon because it symbolizes rebirth and the circle of life. “I wanted something that resembled a rebirth or change in me,” he told RadarOnline.

In addition to the new tattoo, Gosselin is making other changes as well. He is working with a life coach and has hired a new manager.

“This tattoo for Jon marks this turning point in his life, and symbolizes his time of change, and improvement,” Jon’s new manager Canaan Rubin told Radar. “He has been actively exploring ways to better his life, become a better father, boyfriend, ex-husband, friend, business partner, everything.”
