celebrity tattoos - [david beckham]

Updated on July 9, 2009

david beckham's history with tattoos

"The idea to get tattooed came to me a little while after Brooklyn was born. Mine are all about the people in my life, my wife and sons, who I want with me always. When you see me, you see the tattoos. You see an expression of how I feel about Victoria and the boys. They're part of me."

David Beckham's tattoos include:


      Brooklyn - the name of his first-born son runs across his lower back

      Romeo - the name of his second son sits just below the base of his neck

      Cruz - the name of his third son is placed just below the winged figure.

     Guardian Angel - this is how Beckham has described the figure with arms outstretched that sits between his shoulder blades. This tattoo was later expanded to include larger wings.

     Winged Cross - Beckham was in the midst of the 2004 UEFA Championships when he had his UK tattooist, flown in to do this piece on the back of his neck.

     Chinese Characters - Sources say the tattoo seen running down the left side of his torso on his ribs is Mandarin Chinese and reads "Death and life have determined appointments, Riches and honors depends upon heaven."

 

David Beckham's left arm consists of a lot of designs that focus on his wife (Victoria Adams AKA "Posh Spice" from the Spice Girls) and his boys.

     "Ut Amem Et Foveam" - translates as "so that I love and cherish." A Hebrew phrase has also been added above his wife's name. A symbol of indeterminate meaning is on the inside of that wrist as well.

     . He also got a tattoo of his wife Victoria. It's a reproduction of a Brigitte Bardot-like pose that was taken for Pop Magazine back in 2004 and it cover the entire outside of his left forearm. A variety of sources report this is David's favorite picture of her. The tattoo has some stars around it and the phrases "Forever by your side" and "'Till death do us part."

     . Cherub on the inside of his left wrist, to match the one on his right.

     . Hebrew saying "My son, do not forget my teaching but keep my commands in your heart."

 

Beckham's right arm contains a variety of designs that consist of his career, considering family & his job are the two most important things to him.

     . Roman numeral VII, as "seven" was his Manchester United number.

     . Latin phrase "Perfectio In Spiritu" which translates as "spiritual perfection."

     . His upper right arm has a large angel on it, and there are cherubs on the inside of his bicep, representing his boys.

Later Beckham had the tattoo piecework into a complete tattoo sleeve with the addition of another angel, flames and the phrase "Let them hate as long as they fear."

 

All in all, David Beckham is one of Hollywood's finest men & definetely one of the most tattooed celebrities out there to date.
