New jimae geiko will still wear maezashi for another year or two. Then they will cease to wear anything unless it's a formal occasion.

She still hasn't cut her nemaki, though...

Can't jimae geiko choose how to decorate their own katsura? Or is it supposed to be a mark of age?

Technically all geiko have the standard kushi, kogai, and tama as this is what geisha in the Edo Period wore (plus all that stuff about maturity). Newer geiko can choose the maezashi that they'll wear and all geiko will usually swap the bekko kushi out for something more interesting in the summer, but otherwise everything exists to have a specific "look".

It appears that geiko Umewaka got a tattoo. Is that against the rules, or is there no rule? It is very subtle.

I don't know, but you wouldn't see it when she's dressed in Kimono anyway.

Technically you're not supposed to, but it's so faint that a customer won't randomly catch a glimpse of it should her arm protrude. I wonder what it says though as it appears to be something written in Braille :?:

She really is a rebel geiko. First posting nude selfies and now a tattoo. Interesting to watch

I'm personally not a fan, but I do watch :oops: . Those choices combined with the things she writes sometimes destroy my image of geiko propriety lol. But hey, they are human and I think their personalities are ultimately bwhat make outstanding geiko. She deleted the photo I guess or I would have translated :(

She did, yeah. I know what you mean. I unfollowed her a while ago after she posted quite a sexual photo, refollowed her after I stumbled upon a good karyukai-related photo of hers, and now might unfollow her again. I'm not interested in her personal life and I don't want it to change my perception.

I tried translating it but it didn't seem to make sense. I got to "cyt" then got confused about spacings. Thought it might be upside down but then characters didn't exist. I dunno.

She's been through a lot of ****, so getting a very small/discrete tattoo isn't that big of a deal. Also, her Instagram doesn't advertise who she is specifically, so it's kinda safe for her to express how she feels on there. Maybe she just needs an outlet?

Actually she tags a lot of her selfies (geiko stuff or not) as umewaka, geiko, kamishichiken, etc, in English/romaji and Japanese. And her profile is currently public, so the tags are bound to get traffic.

She knows what she's doing so if people are going to talk, let them. She reminds me a lot of Katsuno. I like to see the human side of geiko, but I also enjoy the illusion that at the end of the day they are ultimately better than me lol :lol:

Edit: Akka, Japanese uses its own set of Braille so maybe it isn't English

Ahh, that totally makes sense. Not sure why I didn't consider that there might be a Japanese Braille system... Haha.

Maybe her behaviour is the reason why she originally left for 5 years? :?:
