thanks to 36_moons for the heads up - Inoue Bunta's web showing Hyde's tattoo detail & he ponders on the popularity of Hyde
...It shows how much and how long I've been out of the loop because I seriously went "oh blond hair so this is from back th---what that's a new tattoo what."
...I also wonder if it's picture quality or a really odd sunburn.
ah, the hazards of playing catch up with one's inbox. he's had MORE work since this, i think. latest photos look to me like more shading was added to give the thorns more depth and not this flat black appearance. they look nicer than the reddish brown outlines which did not match his wings in color at all. though this pic really makes the thorns stand out and look so much larger.
i need to go back and re-read the article. i've forgotten much of it, except how long it took to do this. and when Hyde said in an mc that he wasn't going to re-pierce one of his nipples that had closed because it hurt too much, i thought "wait! a quick poke with a needle is too painful, but 4 or so hours of tattoo work on tender arm flesh is acceptable?? ehHHHhhh???" the man is as crazy as we all think he is. ^___^
, i believe if you see any photos of Hyde on the beach that that really is a tan. i don't remember ever seeing him so brown, even in Taiwan for Moon Child, which was just funny, the offshots showing the tanned vampire. heheheh!
So, Inoue-san is the tattoo artist whom made those wings & thorns?
If I am reading Inoue's blog correctly, he is the same artist who did the wings
I wonder why he decided to have thorns filled in. That definitely wasn't the original design, not with all the shading that used to be there.
BTW this is itsumademo
. I have a new journal. <33
Thanks for the heads up! Maybe Hyde had more tattoo detail work done so he could lay down for a couple of hours~
Anyway do you know when the wings done? was it 1997? 1998? or 2000?
I received this photo in an e-mail "Summer Greetings From Hydeist" in August of 2002 Hyde appears to be 'wingless' so I say it must have been some time around then
Thanks to Liv @ the Ark translated the text if you are curious:"Now I'm working in Taiwan for the film shoot. I'm working outside most of the day. (I haven't been in the sun such a long time since I was a little child.) It's hot! The staffs in Taiwan are friendly and I've eaten something I have never had but they are very delicious. ^_^ Plse look forward to the opening of the film, dear Hydeist. Take care. In the hot summer in Taiwan, hyde"
These shots from Taiwan during Moonchild show Hyde with the wings.
Actually his wings are there in that first photo, they're just very light (you can see the tip on his shoulder). I thought I originally heard he got them around 2000-01...?
ahh! You are absolutely right -
When I received the 'summer greetings' e-mail, the photo was slow to load & at first I thought OMG Hyde is naked.. then the rest of the photo loaded & it was not to be XD
yep. maybe he got it before 2002 coz i found him with the wings on B-PASS 2001 Nov.
Just VERY curious when he got it... *curious..curious..curious..curious..*
Thanks to my dear pal Eleonora from The Ark
- she gave me the heads up:
Diary 26, entry 2000.9.18 He says he had it done in the summer ^
yeah, he was sporting them when they did the REALIVE show that was filmed for the dvd, wasn't it in Osaka Zepp maybe..sometime in october, 2000? he went shirtless for about half of that show. there are screen caps of that floating around here and there.
not sure who to credit for that sc. but thanks to whoever it was. :)
i thought it was just to show off his wings and navel piercing. heheheh!
