Jrock Inked and Pierced Project

A tattoo, or dermal pigmentation, is a mark made by inserting pigment into the skin for decorative or other reasons. Tattoos on humans are a type of decorative body modification, while tattoos on animals are most commonly used for identification or branding.

A lot of Japanese artists have them. Some of the more popular heavily tattooed Jrock stars include: Kyo and Kaoru of “Dir en grey” and Asagi of “D.”

Pierced ones include Aoi of “the GazettE”, Nero of “Merry” (also tattooed), and Hiroki of “D.”

What is the point of a tattoo?
Tattooes are oftened “inked” or “drawn” (takes approximately 2-3 hours or more depending on size and colors) on a person’s body for spiritual, memorial, branding, and drunken reasons. Others do it because they can. As the owner of a
purple, pink and black butterfly tattoo, I can say mine was for personal and memorial reasons. One, I have always been surrounded by butterflies and two, its a rememberance of Kami (Malice Mizer).

How does it relate to the blog?
Its Jrock stars with body ink. Asagi’s roses are a symbol of him, and because its pretty… like him… :ninja: Generally, as any fangirl should know along with their favorite band member’s info profile, is that often their favoritie artists are in fact inked/moded with certain designs on them. If you don’t know already, then consider this to be an educational purpose of tattooes and piercing for the Jrock fan.

  11. when i think of J-Rock tattoos. I think of 雅-Miyavi-. I mean come on, his entire back is covered in The Prajnaparamita Heart Sutra . He also has stuff like un-do wrapped around his upper chest collar bone area. He also has 私は唯一無二である。の天そして地球(I’m the one and only. In heaven and on Earth) on his right arm. On his left arm he has the kanji for “close your heart to every love but hold no one in your arms but me” on his upper left arm. he has “don’t hesitate & go” on his belly.

    also has “M” “Ψ” “Y” on his left knuckles. which is MYV in Greek lettering.

    He also has a 4, Due’le Quartz, and some other stuff tattoo’d all over him.
