Ayumis secret, a real tattoo.

This was brought up in the Super Stars thread on the 7th or 8th page, by truehappiness, and it definitely deserves a thread of its own.

Ryan Chan, the person to the, from our perspective, right of Ayumi in this photo (Leslie Kee being the guy to the left):


Confirms in this blog that Ayumis secret, or at least one of them, is that part of the tattoo on the cover is real.

The only information he has given this far is that the A is real, but he also stated that there's more of it that's real, too.

So, the A on this picture is actually a real tattoo, it's not all just painted on.



He also states that if we look at the album, I believe he means the booklet, we should be able to figure out more.

Source: http://www.katoonbaby.com/xx/?p=243 - read the blog comments [Edit: Some blog comments deleted, please check the EDIT: below].

As a minor note, while I see this information and source as reliable, it should only be taken 99.9% seriously for now, heh.

It's quite possible that avex had him remove those posts. Unless it was all fake.

I still believe it.

EDIT:
This is two posts of what he wrote after the inquisitive questions in the blog:

oh, i think i already gave it away. hehe.

If you check the blog now it has been edited to say:
This post has been updated (including webmaster’s comments) on Nov.27
Sorry if any confusion caused.


It seems that the posts by Ryan Chan was deleted and the first blog entry was edited, by higher authorities.

Earlier the original entry said "guess what the secret might be!" in addition to the text that now only says "Ayu’s upcoming full ablum “Secret” will be released on Nov. 29.
She looks beautiful than ever in this cover!".
Someone asked, and Ryan gave away spoilers. This only confirms the information even more, to me.
EDIT #2:
Ryan Chan stated that the A, and other small parts of the tattoo is real. If you remember there was a report about Ayumi getting a tattoo some time ago, the thread is here. That was back in September this year, 4 months ago.

I put the two pictures beside each other, and the similarities can be seen. For the Secret picture there was a few curves added onto the A. The half heart shape is the leg of the Unicorn, take a careful look. Ayumis wing is covered by her clothes in the article, but is apparent on the Secret cover, the complement to the wing Tomoya has.



~angel*ayumi~ posted this picture:



Both tattoos might of course be fake, but I do not see what reason Ryan Chan would have to say something like what he said if they were fake. Now we're just to wait for Ayu to make it public, to be 110% sure.

are you sure

such a big A on her back? ?

how does she cover it when photoing the Blue Bird...when wearing bikkini
maybe she covered it with creams which have the same color with the skin
but isnt that annoying covering that everytime?

i dont believe that

Firstly it wouldn't be very hard to hide it with makeup, or photoshop work, especially not on photos. And I am quite sure the tattoo was made after BLUE BIRD or ARENA TOUR 2006.

iphis, the 'tattoo' was done WAY after BLUE BIRD. They took the photos for Secret probably sometime in September when Ayu went to L.A. :]~
Or maybe even later?!

Woo rebel ayu go! I heard it was 'not the norm' for a woman like her to get tattoos. People were talking about Namie's, but meh.

I'd say the norm is for everyone to not get a tattoo, it's pretty rare .

She's pulling it off with style, haha, a sentence I connect with Ayu so much. Probably too much.

The "A" being the real tattoo is quite obvious. But there's more? =O I wonder what's the rest of the tattoo.

When it's photo shoots it's almost silly how easy it is to edit away with photoshop.

You also showed me the picture from the recent Hey!x3 episode, in which her dress did not cover her shoulders, and there was no A tattoo there. I don't know how easy it is to cover up with makeup.

Seems like a bit of a strange move for Ayu...tattoos just don't seem to be her style....many hot springs / spas in Japan are divided between those that will allow people with tatoos and those that don't, because people tend to associate tattoos with the Yakuza. Someone who went abroad with me was asked to leave a hot spring because of his tattoo.
