Eye Patches in Visual Kei

Recommended Posts

Just now I saw TOKIYA wearing an eye patch and now I'm wondering about all of the artists with eye patches. Off the top of my head, HAKUEI almost always wears one, I  believe Kyo (DIR EN GREY) has, I think Kirito has, but not sure. Any visual examples with pictures would be great too.

Off the top of my head:

Whats-his-face from OROCHI would always be wearing one in their band photos, don't think I've ever seen him without one

While not always covering one of his eyes, Hora is famous for having these interesting fashion pieces that stretch the definition of an "eye-patch"

And having one member wearing an eyepatch is the standard for Iryou Kei bands

I'm not sure if the nose band counts or not  🤔

Links are from Google and Last.fm but I'm not sure if that always results in blank images. Usually they blank out to me too if there's a problem. If you really wanna see you can just google the bands and there should be at least one of the photos I posted in the results

Oh, no worries, just an aesthetic thing, thought it was just a problem on my phone.

IDK why? Maybe cos it is one of typical Japanese delinquents, (furyou), tropes, besides those baggy pants, sarashi, face mask, and pompadour hairstyle?? 

VK supposed to represent that kind of anti conformity in Japan stuffs, right?

This can be fixed by changing the .webp part of the image url to .jpg
