According to Johnny Suputama, founder of Spoon & Tamago, "wrestlers were considered sacred warriors and their hand prints were good-luck charms, which is how they became collector's items."

Takayasu is a professional sumo wrestler who has won multiple awards and prizes in the sport.

In a video posted to the @sumokyokai twitter account, Takayasu can be seen "signing" autographs that will be sold to fans.

He quickly presses his hand on ink and then marks white paper with his handprint.

This is so satisfying.

I could watch this all day long.

One by one, Takayasu leaves his mark, creating memorabilia for sumo lovers.

How much would you pay for this unique autograph?
