Miyavi by ImperialBlue Miyavi by ImperialBlue
My other fav singer: MIYAVI
I write here several interesting fact about him :love:
Original Japanese Name: Ishihara Takamasa
Original Koreanise Name: Lee Ki Ah
Birth date and place: Sep 14th 1981, Konohanaku, Osaka
Blood type: AB
Favcolor: Pink (This explain much about his personality :XD:)
He has claimed to be his own favorite artis.
He has issues shouting all the time, no matter where he is.
And he cannot go a day without hugging someone.
Height:183cm~185cm (about 6'0"~6'1")
Favorite Boxers/Briefs:Playboy
Favorite Fragrance:Yvessaintlaurent Baby Doll
Strong Point: Guitar
Favorite Brand:John Galliano / Dress Camp / Don Ed Hardy / LeSportsac / my inferior products / Room No.382 (382 is his name)

He has three piercings in his face (right eyebrow, left nostral, right bottom lip) six in his ear (whoa, I need 2 more :p), and one "secret" piercing. The interesting thing about his lip piercing is, it actually goes through his lip as opposed to under/around it like most piercings do.

miyavi commented on of his tattoos, Omitoufu: "It is the speech in the Buddha literature of Wisdom. I want to spend my life to find the answer of my heart".

Miyavi's back tattoo:
The Heart Sutra, in its Japanese form (the Hannya Shingyo), is often chanted by Zen groups before and/or after a meditation sitting. It's ideal for this purpose because its concise length (less than 300 syllables) makes it easy to memorize, while still capturing the essential elements of Buddhist teaching.

The Prajnaparamita Heart Sutra:
When the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara
was coursing in the deep Prajnaparamita,
he perceived that all five skandhas are empty,
thereby transcending all sufferings.
Sariputra, form is not other than emptiness
and emptiness not other than form.
Form is precisely emptiness and emptiness precisely form.
So also are sensation, perception, volition, and consciousness.
Sariputra, this voidness of all dharmas
is not born, not destroyed,
not impure, not pure, does not increase or decrease.
In voidness there is no form,
and no sensation, perception, volition or consciousness;
no eye, ear, nose, tongue, body, mind;
no sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, thought;
there is no realm of the eye
all the way up to no realm of mental cognition.
There is no ignorance and there is no ending of ignorance
through to no aging and death and no ending of aging and death.
There is no suffering, no cause of suffering,
no cessation of suffering, and no path.
There is no wisdom or any attainment.
With nothing to attain, Bodhisattvas relying on Prajnaparamita
have no obstructions in their minds.
Having no obstructions, there is no fear
and departing far from confusion and imaginings,
they reach Ultimate Nirvana.
All past, present and future Buddhas,
relying on Prajnaparamita, attain Anuttara-Samyak-Sambodhi.
Therefore, know that Prajnaparamita
is the great mantra of power,
the great mantra of wisdom, the supreme mantra,
the unequalled mantra,
which is able to remove all sufferings.
It is real and not false.
Therefore recite the mantra of Prajnaparamita:
Gate, Gate, Paragate, Parasamgate, Bodhi Svaha

In the last line of "The Heart Sutra", it says:
"Gate, Gate, Paragate, Parasamgate! Bodhi Svaha!", which means "Gone, gone, gone over, gone fully over, Awakened! So be it!

Mother: Japanese
Father: Zanichi Korean
