When I take a seat with the Korean band for a meeting at their resort a day after the New York City quit on their We Rose You Live globe excursion, Dojoon still has a wonderful message, love, composed in resources, block letters on the top of his hand that blinked to the group whenever he got his guitar.
Drummer Hajoon additionally lately deceived followers into thinking he had a breast tattoo, however he engraved on a rose and also”We Rose You”with fluid lining– by himself, a lot to the shock of the other participants as well as me.
And Jaehyeong, The Rose’s bassist, messes around right into the body art globe by embellishing his hand with celebrities, smiley faces, and songs notes. Their eyeliner insignias are absolutely an upgrade from the water-activated short-lived tattoos I liked as a youngster. Like a lot of rock bands throughout history, the children of The Rose have a fondness for black eyeliner.
Nonetheless, they aren’t purely smudging it around their eyes à la Billie Joe Armstrong or Pete Wentz. Hajoon, Dojoon, and Jaehyeong have been attracting layouts onto their hands, cheeks, as well as chests as momentary tattoos prior to heading on phase. The Rose’s public identity purely concentrates on the music part of sex, medications, as well as rock ‘n’ roll– they are a K-pop band at the end of the day– the guys still experiment with the hallmark rockstar adornment.
This meeting marked the third time I took a seat with The Rose (mostly due to the fact that we constantly have useful discussions concerning beauty that I can’t help however have each time they’re in community), and I need to confess that seeing strong hair colours and also non-traditional makeup ended up being progressively more integrated in the way they offer themselves as a band has been unbelievably enjoyable to see. I ought to keep in mind that all of Woosung’s ink is permanent, though.
Last time I spoke with The Rose, back in September 2018, he showed me the 1993 etching in Old English typeface on his back below the nape of his neck. He’s considering that included the archangel Michael to his right forearm(“the individual who killed the devil,”he notes matter-of-factly). Back in June, he dropped in studiobysol, one of the largest as well as famous tattoo studios in Seoul, to obtain it done by its owner, Sol.”I liked his shades, “Woosung notes. His tattoo matter is now at 6– in the meantime.
“I want a lot of even more tattoos,” Woosung exposes,”but today, I’m kind of keeping back.” I such as to get a large tattoo and believe concerning it there when I require to make a large decision. For Woosung, tattoos are greater than a daring aesthetic option. They note different action in his music job, and also the tattooing process gives him time toassess where he’s originated from and where he wants to go. He confesses he dropped asleep while getting a pair of them, Woosung likes to take the time resting still for a good three hours hrs “think believe regarding the things I need require think assume and want desire think aboutBelieve and I and also of get my mind set through establishedWith”he says.
“When I need to make a large decision, I like to think as well as get a large tattoo concerning it there. It’s like when I’m on the airplane, I write tunes much better. “The various other participants haven’t gone under the needle themselves just yet, but Hajoon says he”really”desires one. Dajoon already has something in mind, too. He emphasizes that he’s thought a whole lot concerning it.”A climbed below on this finger, “he informs me, indicating the within his left third finger. “When you obtain a chord with guitar, you can see the tattoo.”At this point, Woosung notifications I, as well, have a rose tattoo.
He has one below his left collarbone. I clear up that the one on my left forearm is for my grandmother, not the band, I swear. We additionally realized we both use the same printer toner– the Dr. Jart Ceramidin Toner– which I feel inclined to point out since it won a Best of Beauty Award this year. At the program the night before at New York City’s The Town Hall, I saw somebody in the second row who recreated Woosung’s make-up from The Rose’s”Red”video.
The follower had pink eye shadow on their covers and holographic star stickers and red defined on their cheeks with red lining just as Woosung did. When I remember this discovery for him, he’s flattered that somebody was motivated enough by the want to come to the program like that. Woosung delighted in experimenting with the lively make-up himself.”It truly went well with the theme we were trying to go for,”he discusses.”It was for a dark, evening scene, and when the video camera caught me, it was glittering.” Switching up his makeup for the video likewise provided him a chance to discover the expressive nature
of make-up, past great smoky eyes as well as berry lip color. “It’s so cool that you can do many things on your face as well as your vibe will certainly be various each time, “he shares.”I believe that’s the enjoyable part of it. You can do pink eye make-up or black eyeshadow, and it will totally change your appearance. “This transformative high quality of make-up comes particularly in handy as a musician. Depending upon the makeup he carries, Woosung handles different
types of self-confidence.” If I wanted to look actually solid as well as terrifying, I can do that as well as I can possibly sing that way too.” Since the meeting, Woosung has actually entered into the globe of nail art with a big, yellow face on a red base, so we have something to chat about next time. What else is following for The Rose’s elegance trial and error? Vague, however Jaehyeong did mention wanting to color his hair platinum blonde as well as enter into shine …
