Agency Tattoos: Mike Takeshita

VP-Digital Design Director, RPA

Published on .

The majority of RPA VP-Digital Design Director Michael Takeshita's tattoos have some meaning in Japanese culture -- "whether that be my family crest, the meaning behind my last name, or the symbolism of certain motifs," he said. In Japan, there's a holiday called "Boys' Day," during which families with boys display large koi windsocks outside their homes. To celebrate the arrival of his own twin boys, now ten years old, he decided to get a tattoo of two koi, protected by a dragon.
