Taika Waititi revealed new ‘R’ tattoo on Instagram
It seems like Taika Waititi really loves rugby. On Wednesday, the Grammy award-winning filmmaker, actor, and comedian took to his Instagram page to unveil his new ‘R’ tattoo. His tattoo shows his unconditional love for the sport.
“I love Rugby,” he wrote alongside the picture and video of his new tattoo. Earlier this week, Taika’s artist Daniel Winter, who goes by Winterstone, also shared a glimpse of the tattoo on social media.
Daniel even tagged the What We Do In The Shadows actor on the Instagram post and he joked around about the meaning of Taika’s new ink.

Always good seeing you brother! #love #R #tattoo #oldenglish #tattoos”
